According to scientists, exposure to sunlight while gardening increases the ability to secrete serotonin (the natural anti-stress hormone) and melatonin (the sleep hormone), which helps regain life balance. . A study published in the American Journal of Medical Psychology confirmed that gardening reduces the appearance of many stress hormones in the blood, typically cortisol.
A survey found that up to 80% of gardeners say they are very happy and satisfied with their current life. Other studies have also shown that gardening is one of the most effective activities for stress relief. Tests revealed that gardeners had lower levels of stress hormones than those who did not. In addition, the researchers also found that tillage can help improve health through exposure to beneficial microorganisms in the soil.
