Have you ever heard the saying about different strokes being for different folks? Gardening is one of the most misunderstood hobbies. At first glance, it might seem like a boring past time reserved for cookie cutter — or bored — housewives or even the elderly, but gardening has a ton of benefits for people of all backgrounds, ages, and physical fitness levels.
In fact, gardening has a whole host of pretty cool advantages, including reduced stress levels, increased strength and physical fitness, and it may even boost your body’s own natural defenses by improving your immune system. Science has only begun to confirm all the reasons that playing in dirt as a kid and as an adult is actually good for you. Sorry germaphobes, but all the millions of bacteria, viruses, and icky worms in dirt can actually help to strengthen the immune system. Aside from that, playing around in soil just feels really good. So garden on gardeners, garden on!
Furthermore, people have become so reliant — ahem, and attached — to all their smart (or not so smart) gadgets, gizmos, tablets, and other electronics that a condition called nature deficit disorder is starting to become a thing, especially in areas like large cities where adults and children have little to access to the natural world. So playing in dirt and gardening is more than just a simple hobby; it has some pretty serious benefits!
