Why gardening makes you happier.
Have you got a garden or perhaps even a window box?
Gardeners World magazine have carried out a study and found that over 90% of gardeners think that getting out in the garden and getting busy helps lift their mood. The survey also found that gardeners are less likely to display the signs associated with depression and unhappiness.
Gardeners World editor Lucy Hall says it’s a combination of nurturing something but also the idea of natural optimism in that no matter how bad the weather conditions there’s always next year.
In this beautiful weather try and make some time to get out in your garden or take a walk in your local park; you may be surprised at how much better you feel!
