Benefits of Gardening for Mental Health 


Promotes exercise

While gardening can be largely enjoyable, it is also a great way to exercise. Many individuals don’t reach the minimum daily guidelines for daily exercise. Lack of exercise can lead to a range of health issues. 

Reduces time on technology

Activities such as working in your yard are a great escape from technology. Increasing your time in nature has many benefits. A sense of accomplishment is one of these benefits and something you will experience while working in the garden.

Encourages healthy eating

Gardening encourages healthy eating as individuals who grow their own produce are more likely to be aware of the health benefits of eating organically produced crops. Believe me there is no better feeling than eating food which you have grown.

Improves mood and decreases stress
