Gardening is the art and practice of gardens. We can cultivate, both in an open and closed space, flowers, trees, or vegetables, either for aesthetics or for pleasure.
GARDENING REDUCES STRESS
With half an hour dedicated to growing and caring for the garden, the levels of cortisol, the hormone that produces stress, are reduced.
THE GARDENING HELPS TO CULTIVATE THE MEMORY
By reducing the level of cortisol in the brain, which also interferes with learning and memory, the ability to remember and learn is improved.
When you take care of the garden or a pot with flowers and you see that they grow, that they are more beautiful every day, it is comforting and that improves self-esteem.
STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
The reason that gardening is related to the immune system is that if it is practiced in an outdoor space, sunlight is directly received and that translates into vitamin D, responsible for helping the body absorb calcium, the mineral which strengthens the bones and the immune system.
TAKING CARE OF THE GARDEN HELPS YOU BURN CALORIES AND GET IN FITNESS
Gardening for 45 minutes will burn roughly the same calories as doing 30 minutes of aerobic exercise. In any case, gardening involves movement and activity. Very healthy!
OUR SENSES ARE STIMULATED
It seems that one of the most rudimentary tasks, such as gardening, stimulates us since we feel and touch the earth (which is like reconnecting with it), we see beautiful things, we perceive the smells of the earth and flowers. Go out to the terrace or garden and take care of your plants!
In our web you will find a great variety of flowerpots and other items to decorate your terrace, patio or garden.
