A Simple Way to Reduce Stress
'Gardening is one of life's simple pleasures. Even if you don't have a green thumb, digging in the dirt, planting and nurturing plant life fills a void in many people's lives. Some call it spiritual while others describe it as therapeutic or stress relieving.
Indeed, planting a garden lets you connect with nature in a way that you probably crave, even if you don't exactly realize it. This is why many people find gardening to be addictive — in a good way. What starts as a few flowerpots on your patio may soon morph into a flower bed or raised vegetable garden.'
