Gardening for Exercise

Gardening is a great hobby that is great for stress relief, but did you ever consider the types of exercises you are doing?  The great thing about gardening is that you are doing something that is calm, relaxing and fun while getting in some stretching, weightlifting and a cardiovascular workout.  For example, instead of going to the gym and working on the rowing machine, go rake some leaves.  Gardening can also help lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and help fight against conditions like heart disease that come about from inactivity and weight gain.[1]

Go outside and get dirty!  A little gardening will help reduce stress and give you a great workout!
