If you like being outdoors and getting your hands dirty, chances are that gardening is something that you do (or could) enjoy.
Whether you consider yourself a green thumb, or you’ve got a few plant babies that you’re currently taking care of, you know that gardening can be a lot of fun. With a healthy dose of patience, you get to see your hard work come to life!
Aside from being fun, a lot of people enjoy gardening for the fact that it can be very calming. You’re outside in the fresh air and sun, you’re being active and you’re getting a strong sense of fulfillment and accomplishment as you work.
You may even find that when you’ve had a rough day, gardening is a way to cool off. It forces you to focus your attention on the task at hand, helping you to pause from the things that might be causing your mind to rush around.
Gardening doesn’t necessarily have to involve getting outside either. If you don’t have a yard, maybe you’ve got a bunch of indoor plants that you tend to. Perhaps you’ve started growing herbs on your bench, or have a few bonsai trees that you’re keeping in shape.
Whatever your gardening hobby looks like, you’re planting the seeds (sorry, we had to) for a bunch of different skills that you can use in other areas of your life!
