Healthful Benefits of Gardening
If you think that over the winter months you have overindulged and packed on more than your share of adipose tissue, answer the following questions honestly.
- When you stand sideways, do you look like a pouter pigeon?
- When you contemplate your back image in the mirror, do you resemble a well-nourished baby hippopotamus?
- When you manage to squeeze yourself into your jeans, do you find that every stitch has to do its duty?
- Have you found–to your horror–an extra roll around your mid-section, making you look like the Michelin Man?
If you answered yes to all of the above, then it’s time to start gardening. Digging, weeding, lifting, and planting will soon whittle away those unwanted pounds, and by the end of summer you will be your old sylphlike self. You can cheerfully say, “Goodbye Mr./Mrs. Hips!”
