John Burroughs, a writer and naturalist from America, once said, “I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more.”
Since ancient times, gardening has been known as a natural stress reliever. Today, healthcare providers consistently recommend gardening activities to patients struggling with issues that are negatively affecting all aspects of their lives.
The activity itself, plus enjoying the peace, beauty and bounty of gardening can lower stress levels and promote health and wellness in your life. Even if you don’t have a huge garden space in your backyard, gardening activities are readily available for you.
