Gardening is indeed a great way to spend your free time. There’s no better way to make a salad than with the ingredients of your own little organic garden! Buying organic foods from markets is one thing, but growing your own gives you a completely different feeling. Not only do you get to consume pesticide-free, healthy, organic foods, but you get to taste what your hard work produced! Gardening is also extremely effective in terms of reducing stress, depression, and anxiety. This is a result of the M.Vaccae (healthy bacteria) in the soil. Breathing in Mycobacterium Vaccae increases serotonin levels, causing anxiety and stress levels to drop, and gives you a sense of peace and calmness. It also makes the soil healthy, which means healthy plants too!
Additionally, spending time outside whilst gardening increases your Vitamin-D intake since you’re spending more time in the sun, which is extremely beneficial for your body. It boosts the immune system which helps your body battle diseases and pushes you to achieve your daily dose of exercise. Gardening is also a much more productive and educational alternative for children instead of spending their time on video games and TV. Instead, your children will be able to observe how organic cucumbers, beetroot, broccoli, sweet pepper, and many more are grown and will take an interest in gardening as well. If you are looking for a healthier, more beneficial lifestyle, then at-home organic gardening is the right way to go.
