Why is gardening better than walking or cycling?!

Why is gardening better than walking or cycling?!

Gardening, walking, and cycling are all three healthy and enjoyable activities for physical and mental health. Each one of them has its own benefits and their choice depends on personal preferences, environmental conditions and individual goals. Gardening is a wonderful way to spend time outdoors, working with the soil and tending to plants and flowers. This is a relaxing and therapeutic activity that can help reduce stress and improve relationships with nature. Also, gardening offers the opportunity to plant trees and vegetables, contributing to the protection of the environment and the production of fresh food. Walking is a great way to increase your level of physical activity and explore the environment around you. It can be beneficial for heart health, for increasing muscle resistance and for reducing the risk of various diseases. Also, hiking can be a great way to follow nature and enjoy beautiful natural landscapes. Cycling is also a healthy and fun activity. By cycling, you can reap the benefits of aerobic exercise, strengthening muscles, improving endurance and body coordination. Also, cycling is a great way to reduce air pollution and contribute to environmental protection. At the end of the day, the choice between gardening, walking, and biking comes down to personal preference and the individual's capabilities. While some people may enjoy more outdoor activities with the land, others may prefer to spend their time moving in other ways. Each activity has its benefits and it is important to find what makes you feel better and satisfied.

However, as a gardener (bahcevan) with 50 years of experience, I think that if you want to combine the pleasant with the useful, there is no better activity than gardening. In addition to keeping your body in good shape, you will also have healthy food on your table. Exercise is a prerequisite for long-term health, fitness and vitality, but gardening not only benefits the body, but due to direct contact with plants and soil, it also has a beneficial effect on the psyche. Gardening is hard physical work, but spending just two and a half hours a week gardening can reduce your risk of obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, depression, cancer of the colon and premature death. People who have their own garden and take care of plants are likely to exercise 40-50 minutes more than those who choose walking or cycling as a moderate activity. How many calories certain gardening activities burn: intensive gardening 400 to 600 calories per hour; raking leaves at 350 to 450 calories per hour; cleaning the garden 400 calories per hour; mowing the lawn from 250 to 350 calories per hour; weed from 200 to 400 calories per hour; burning 200 to 400 calories per hour; watering 120 calories per hour.
