Take Up This Hobby and Live Longer!!!

Yip.. and wait till you see what it is.



While our immediate thoughts would have been meditation, yoga, long nature walks - we were a little surprised with the hobbie associated to this tip.


Gardening.


So while your immediate visualization of this word showcased an elderly person with a garden hat, some gloves and specs - think again!

Here are some reasons that Gardening is what of the best ways to achieve a healthier and longer life.


  1. Grow your own Food : for obvious reasons, being the organic factor and all the wonderfulness that goes with eating organic.

  2. Mental Health Therapy: Science has proven that getting your fingers in the dirt can improve your state of mind and ultimately your emotions. The fact is that being in a garden can inhibit the release of our stress hormone (cortisol).

  3. Proud Plant Parents: There is a significant joy that one feels when a seed you planted grows into its first bloom or when you are able to enjoy the first fruits. It provides a real sense of achievement and improved self-esteem.


Now Go On - Happy Planting!
