While the Pandemic has taken a lot from us, it would be unfair to mention how it’s also given us the time and space to venture out and explore fruitful hobbies. Perhaps one of the most under-rated recreation activities is gardening.
With our ever-growing stressful lives- desperately trying to strike a balance between our professional and personal lives- we tend to miss out on reconnecting with our souls and the nature around us. Thus, to subvert the overwhelming tension around us, I suggest Gardening to be the refinement towards a healthier and happier lifestyle.
Many subject gardening’s sole purpose is a mere appreciation for the environment. They could not be more wrong. It’s an activity that is meant to soothe your mind and soul while aiding as a form of exercise for your body. Engaging in this undertaking results in profound weight loss regulates blood pressure and cholesterol levels in the body. Further, studies indicate that it decreases the chances of depression, anxiety, and stress.
Gardening has both tangible and intangible benefits that facilitate a healthier fate for the practitioner in the long run. If performed with an open mindset, it can teach you perseverance, responsibility, and endow self-satisfaction.
Nature seeks no credit, but it does unwind our souls from the chaos of everyday life. To achieve a sense of tranquility we need to bond at the grassroots level. Quite literally.
