Gardening – A new perspective to life

It’s never too late. Never too late to try something new. Gardening is a hobby that comes with age and wisdom. Parents enjoy it, grandparents enjoy it; one may wonder what is the secret behind this hobby. Gardening is not only about ambiance, aesthetic beauty or the end products. It is however more about persistence, patience, hard work, love and life. Gardening is more than a hobby, it’s a new perspective to life.

Believe it or not gardening is associated to long and happy life. In countries like the US and the Republic of Korea, gardening is used as a therapy by elderly people. Studies show that the benefits of gardening as a therapy helps in reducing stress, modulation of anxiety and encourages productive physical activity. Gardening connects you with nature and nurtures both mind & body.

Another benefit that gardeners see is the joy of growing one’s own food and eating them. Apart from being healthy (chemical free), studies have shown that gardeners find their home grown food to be a lot tastier and delicious than products available in the market. There is no higher satisfaction than eating your own home grown food.

Gardening is an inspiration. It’s an art integral to Homo sapiens, a primal instinct. At some point of time gardening will and does touch our life. But why must one wait, why not start off right now. All you need is your willingness to change and patience. If you have them you will soon see yourself engaged with soil, manure and nature herself. Pursuing gardening is more than a hobby, it’s a new perspective to life.
