Go ahead and get gardening. It will keep you healthy. Researchers from the Royal Horticultural Society have found that, people who garden, every day, have well-being scores which are 6.6-percent higher, and stress levels that are 4.2-percent lower, compared to those who do not garden at all.
Researchers say the increase in well-being, which comes with gardening, is comparable to the increase in well-being which people get from doing regular, vigorous exercise – such as cycling or running.
