Gardening is not just for seniors looking for a hobby. Gardening as the stats in the infographic below shows is an excellent way for you to stay healthy, reduce your risk of a heart attack and even stay in shape.

So if you’re looking for a more fun and hands-on way to stay healthy, you really cannot go wrong with gardening. Plus, you’re getting some of your own homegrown food you can cook with as well.

It’s not just all about the possibility of getting ripped (ok maybe a bit of a stretch). Gardening also is great for your mental wellbeing.

Being a stepdad can be very stressful, but a productive way to release stress is through gardening.

Studies have shown people who garden have much lower stress levels and are generally happier people.

While gardening is great for your own physical and mental wellbeing. Gardening can be a great activity you can do to spend time with the kids.

It’s a fantastic way for you guys to bond, you can pick what kind of things you are going to grow, decide what you are going to do with them once they have grown (cooking or selling are both fun) and you guys can get really dirty while you do this.

Gardening really is a fun way for a stepdad to spend time with the kids and get something out of it at the end of the day. So grab your seeds, tools and have some rocking tunes on the radio.

You’re all set for a great day of gardening.
