How Your Yard Contributes To A Healthier You!

You all know I a a garden girl.I have shared some of my moments with you here. Well, today I have some great info to share with you.

Did you know…

1. Children’s stress levels fall within minutes of seeing green spaces. Knowing and experiencing nature makes us generally happier, healthier people.

2. Getting dirty is good for you! Mycobacterium vaccae in soil mirrors the effect on neurons that Prozac provides.

3. Residing near living landscapes improves mental health. Research found that people moving to greener areas experiences an immediate improvement in mental health.

All these points (and there are many more) reinforce the health benefits of our outdoor living spaces. 

If you would like to know more, we would be happy to work with you on a story or to set up an interview for you with Kris Kiser, president and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI).

Take a look!
