Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine,
food and medicine for the soul.
In a May 29, 2011 article, Gardening can be good for your health says local health expert, Carol Zimmerman wrote about the many health benefits of gardening, including:
- lower blood pressure
- increased immune function
- reduced stress.
- you can also get a full workout
- muscle endurance
- muscle strengthening
After a busy day or on the weekends I love to relax in my backyard and enjoy the view of the flowers. Furthermore, after spending time in the backyard surrounded with flowers, I feel so refreshed and rejuvenated.
I hope that you have been inspired to start your own garden or get involved in a community garden for your health & wellness.
Have a Healthy Day!
