Adopt gardening for better physical and mental health

Gardening helps in improvement of both physical and mental health, according to a new study.

Besides a healthy lifestyle, physical activities and socialising, gardening also has a huge impact on our health.

A study recently published in the journal Lancet Planetary Health found that community gardening helps in improvement of both physical and mental health.

For the study, the team recruited 291 non-gardening adults aged 41 years. Half of them were assigned gardening jobs while the others were asked to wait.

Nutritional intake and mental health of both groups were monitored and it was found that the gardening group consumed more fibre as a result of gardening and had improved gut health. They also had their stress and anxiety levels decreased.

Study authors concluded that people should be encouraged to participate in gardening and activities closer to nature for a healthier life.
