Gardening a Great Benefit of Spring

Posted: Updated:

Spring is coming and many are anxious to get outside and maybe plant a garden.

Gardening has so many benefits, both physically and mentally.

Research show that gardening is good for our bodies as it involves gentle bending, lifting, and twisting, all of which contribute to our flexibility and balance and strength.

In addition, focusing on our plants and caring for them require our full attention and that helps us relax, forget our daily worries and cares, and helps quiet our minds. Growing things also required us to care about our plants, to nurture them and that's very good for our spirit, it helps us feel creative.

For more information about the benefits of gardening and ways everyone can participate, call Celia McConkey, of the Good Samaritan Society Grand Island Village, at 308.385.3636.
