This may come as a surprise to you, but… drum roll… SOIL is key to sustained well-being, enhanced cognitive performance, elevated creativity and, yes, reduced stress and anxiety! All of this, and no expensive prescription! No whiz-bang piece of technology required or flashy new app to download. Heck no! This is all right at our fingertips – every one of us – we can choose our bio-chemical destiny today by connecting with soil!
For millennia, we humans have had a close relationship with SOIL – it not only feeds us and filters and purifies our water, it also – literally – enhances our physical, mental and emotional health and well-being! Wait, what?
What’s going on here? Are you kidding?
Not at all. And neither are an increasing number of neuroscientists and medical doctors. The mind-boggling complex communities of microorganisms in healthy, living soil interact with our complex neuro-bio-chemistry in such a way that reduces stress and anxiety, and increases serotonin production, that wonderful neuro-transmitter that makes us feel good! Beneficial microbes are abundant in living soils, and make up communities called the microbiome. We also have a microbiome in our bodies, which is affecting our health, well-being, immune systems and even moods. By interacting regularly with the microbiome of soil, we are helping to optimize the microbiome in our bodies. All of this, achieved simply by regularly getting our hands in the soil – that is, by making gardening part of our lifestyle!
And gardening delivers so many additional benefits! Been inside all week at work? Get outside for a while this weekend and garden! Have you listened to the birds lately? Seen the honeybees and butterflies doing their magical thing? Have you soaked up the nourishing (and vitamin D producing) sunshine lately? How about stretching and moving your body in ways you typically don’t at the office or while working? Heck, you might even garden with your sweetheart, your kiddos, your mom and dad or some of your best buddies! There are so many layered benefits to gardening it’s literally a super-drug and a magic-app all in one.
