You Must Get Healthy and the good folks at WhatShed have joined forces to bring you this really cool infographic. Yes, the infographic is about gardening, but you will soon learn that gardening is one of the best ways for a person to not only have a lovely looking garden and a steady supply of healthy food. But it is also a fantastic way to stay in shape and be a happier person!
Eating healthy can be rather expensive, plus you have to deal with going to the store. However, when you are growing your own fruit and vegetables, you are not just saving money and the hassle of going to the store. You are making sure each meal you make with the food you have grown is extra special. Let us tell you, eating a meal with food you have grown with your own two hands is one very rewarding experience.
While the healthy food you have grown is going to help you stay healthy. Gardening is also a far better form of exercise than people realize. Did you know that spending just a few hours in the garden, working on your plants and taking care of the food you are growing can burn the same amount of calories as spending an hour in the gym? It is crazy to think that having fun, pottering around the garden can do so much good for the body.
It is not just the body that gardening does great things for. It also takes care of your mental health. Tests have shown that people who garden have far lower stress levels. Gardening can allow you to just forget all the stress of your day and let you be in your own little world. It really can be a very therapeutic experience.
Gardening is one of the best hobbies a person can do, especially if they are looking for fun and productive ways to aid their healthy lifestyle.
