If you have a garden, keeping on top of it can be challenging – especially if you have a busy schedule and lifestyle. If sorting out your garden is something you’ve been putting off for a while, we’re here to tell you why you should set aside a day to work on it – and what better day than today?
Create a space you’re proud of
On a warm sunny day, there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting in your garden. However, an overgrown and unruly garden is hardly a relaxing space. Spending a day clearing out your garden, getting rid of any waste, cutting back branches, pruning flowers and mowing the lawn will ensure you have a space you’re proud of in time for summer.
Relieve some stress
Gardening helps to release endorphins (the hormone that hels people feel relaxed and satisfied). Spending a few hours in the sun gardening can help to relieve stress and improve your mood, acting as a form of therapy. Spending some time in the sun will also ensure you absorb plenty of Vitamin D, helping to keep your immune system healthy.
Grow your own fruit and vegetables
Growing your own fruit and vegetables is very rewarding and can save you a lot of money. Having access to your own fruit and vegetables can help you to improve your diet too. From tomatoes and carrots to apples and different herbs, growing your own fruit and veg can help you reach your five a day.
Gardening burns calories
Depending on what you do and for how long, gardening can be a good workout and help you burn some calories. Gardening is a physical activity – even a simple hour of gardening can help you burn up to 330 calories!
