  • I try to get out into my yard and garden every night. I never thought that I would find so much joy in growing plants and veggies. It is a huge sense of accomplishment and the body gets a great workout. Sometimes too good but it is totally worth it! I haven't worked out in a few months...due to the garden and spending time in our pool but I went and weighed and measured at Curves yesterday and had lost 2.25 inches! That ROCKS. Gardening is GREAT exercise!!
  • I agree 100% , gardening is a great stress reliever. and you smell the great fragances of all the flowers and nature.
  • I am new to growing veggies and flowers; I have a plot in a community garden. I must say that watering my little borrowed piece of earth is soooo relaxing. I totally zone out as I nurture my future salad ingredients. I also love to wander about, admiring the beauty and bounty in my neighbors' plots. Sooooo wonderfully relaxing!!!
  • Agree. Nothing to relieve stress and that "I wanna beat some fool" feeling like pulling weeds. :-)
  • The garden is where I go when I need to clear my head. The fresh tomatoes and peppers we grow every year are also so much better than any we buy at the grocery store. This article is right on target.
  • Don't get over-heated working in the garden. It is easy to get dizzy since you tend to be working with your head bent down.
