Yard Work Is Hard Work!!

Many people think of a “workout” as a trip to the gym or strapping on the running shoes to hit the pavement! According to the Centers for Disease Control, gardening is compared to “moderate cardiovascular exercise” and some researchers have gone so far as to label gardening as a intense workout. Gardening 30 to 45 minutes a day can burn 150 to 300 calories. Gardening uses all of the major muscle groups which are responsible for most of the calorie burning in the human body. It also increases flexibility and strengthens joints as well as improving balance and sensory perception. Let’s not forget the positive effects on heart health and brain health. Make sure you stretch before you begin. Enjoy this beautiful weather AND do something wonderful for your body and your mind!
