Gardening activities can have positive effects on both your physical and mental health. The hard work involved helps to burn calories and being outside exposes you to Vitamin D which promotes healthy bones. Enjoying the fresh air and connecting with nature can boost your overall mood plus studies show that this can be a great way to relieve feelings of stress.
