Gardening is good for health

Posted by Elizebath Bijoy Monday, March 21, 2011

London: Tending your garden can make you feel younger and happier, say experts.

Gardeners are also more likely to be organised and optimistic than non-gardeners, they said.

A regular spot of gardening gives the over-50s more of a 'zest for life' than those who don't have have an inclination for it, reported citing researchers.

Researchers from two universities in Texas analysed about 300 people over 50, dividing them into gardeners and non- gardeners.

They found that 71 percent of gardeners said they did not 'feel old' compared with 57 percent of non-gardeners.

The gardeners also felt more energetic, got more exercise and were shown to be more mentally active.

There were also higher scores for 'life satisfaction' among gardeners while they were also more likely to eat fresh fruit and vegetables.
