Swap Your Blackberry for Bushes: Gardening Can Beat Depression

A top medic has revealed that the best way to beat feeling in a slump and downhearted is to don some gloves and start pottering around in a garden.

Various studies over time have suggested that gardening is good for health and a GP has devised a new treatment to tackle depression and it is to swap the pills for sowing seeds.

Sir Richard Thompson, president of the Royal College of Physicians, has claimed that gardening can be more powerful to rid one feeling gloomy than a dose of expensive drugs and he hopes to prescribe gardening on the NHS as a way to help Britons beat depression.

The expert contends that drug therapy is costly and that gardening is less pricey but just as effective. He hopes that the Government’s health reforms will give doctors more choice in treating patients with depression and allow them to take advantage of the health benefits of horticulture and gardening classes.

According to a study published in 2011, half an hour spent working in a garden can burn off 200 calories and it also helps to make joints more supple and is great exercise. So why not head out into your garden this summertime, mow the lawn and plant some blooming flowers. Swap playing on your blackberry and opt to trim the bushes instead but make sure that you have adequate garden lighting to ensure that you can see clearly when working with garden tools.
