Whether your planting bright vibrant colored flowers or mouth-watering vegetables, gardening is a great way to get your daily exercise in. If your yard is too small or you just don’t have enough space, look into other alternatives such as a raised garden bed, large planters, or even participate in a community garden. Gardening can be a great way to relax and meditate. Consider getting your family involved for meaningful time together. Gardening also provides exposure to vitamin D, decreased dementia risk, mood-boosting benefits and can help combat loneliness.
