There are many reasons to have plants and flowers in your life.
Bringing plants and flowers into your home is wonderful but creating and maintaining an outdoor garden on your balcony offers even more benefits.
Studies have shown that being able to see plants can help reduce stress levels, while tending to plants is an excellent way to practise mindfulness.
Focusing on an activity like gardening can also be a great distraction from feelings of anxiety.
Research conducted by Plant Life Balance found that the mental benefits of gardening included improved mood and concentration, an increase in creativity and feeling a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
Then there are the physical benefits. Keeping active in the garden will burn calories and boost circulation, which is linked to heart health. Gardening will also increase the strength of your hands and keep them as strong as possible for as long as possible.
Outdoor gardening on your balcony will also help you maintain your Vitamin D levels, which in turn increases your calcium levels, which has benefits for your bones and immune system.
While there are many different types of gardens you could maintain on your balcony, a vegetable or herb garden will also make it easier to maintain a healthy diet with plenty of fresh produce.
