Spending Time In Your Garden
One of the best things about the summer is that it means that you can spend plenty of time enjoying your amazing garden. Not only is it nice to get out of the house, but there are also a number of other benefits to being outside. To inspire you to escape into the natural world, we have put together some of our top reasons why it is a great idea to spend time in your garden.
It is a great workout
Now, by this we don’t mean spending time laying out in the sunshine in your garden. Instead, we mean tackling some of those garden tasks that you need to do to make the space look great. Doing this is a great workout for you, working a whole lot of different muscles, which means that you will have definitely earned a sit down in the sunshine afterwards.
You can spend time as a family
No matter the season we all love spending time with our families. The summer months mean that you can get outside and in the sunshine. Your garden is the ideal place to plan in some family time. This could be in a paddling pool, playing a game or perhaps simply tackling some of the gardening tasks that need doing. The idea is simply to spend some time together.
You can get creative
You may think that you are not the most creative person, but getting out in your garden gives you a great outlet to really let those creative juices flow. You don’t have to be an expert green fingers, instead all you need is to be able to plant a few different blooms and you can bring colour to your outdoor space.
Vitamin D is good for you
Do you find that you feel a bit happier when the sun is shining? There is actually some science behind. During the months of March to September we get most of the vitamin D that we need from the sunshine that we hope to get. Vitamin D is vital for healthy bones and getting plenty of it means that we are likely to feel a whole lot healthier.
It relieves stress
We all get stressed from time to time, extended periods of stress really isn’t good for our mental or physical wellbeing. There are a number of ways that you can relieve stress, and one of them is to get outside and spend some time in amongst nature.
