On March 20th, we celebrate International Happiness Day! It's a day to remind us of the importance of happiness, health, and well-being in our lives. Happiness is a fundamental human goal. And what better way to promote these values than through the joys of gardening!
How does gardening make people happy?
Gardening has been proven to have numerous physical and mental health benefits. It's a great way to stay active and get some exercise, whether it's pruning, planting, or weeding. Not to mention, the fresh air and sunshine can do wonders for our mood and overall well-being.
But gardening isn't just about physical health. It also has a positive impact on our mental health. Engagement in gardening has been shown to promote social relationships, family connection, emotional and mental well-being, and reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can provide a sense of accomplishment and purpose, as well as a connection to nature. In addition, there's nothing quite like the satisfaction of watching your plants grow and thrive under your care.
Simply put, gardening makes people happier!
So, on this International Happiness Day, why not get your hands on it and start a garden? Whether you have a green thumb or you're a beginner, gardening is a fun and rewarding activity that anyone can enjoy.
Not sure where to start?
There are plenty of resources available online or at your local garden centre to help you get started. You can also reach out to gardening communities for tips and advice. And don't forget to enjoy the process! Gardening is all about taking the time to slow down and appreciate the beauty of nature. It also offers a place where trial and error are welcome, and imagination can flow freely about what we can grow.
This International Happiness Day is a reminder to prioritise our health, well-being, and happiness. And what better way to do that than through the joys of gardening? So, get out there and start growing! Your mind and body will thank you for it.
