There is substantial evidence that contact with nature has beneficial effects on both physical and mental health. A great way of connecting to nature is gardening. And the benefits of gardening for our mental health are incredible. On top of breathing fresh air, getting some sun light, and moving, there is great satisfaction in getting simple tasks done. There is a sense of well-being when you walk through the garden and see the growth and the changes that nature and nurture provide. We can apply that to our own life, because nature and nurture can can change us, and help us grow as well!
