Health and wellness experts say that taking up yard work as a hobby can be beneficial. Hobbies often distract the mind from the cares of the day, which can allow a great deal of stress to escape. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you begin to spend time in your yard. Get started right away, even if you do not think you are struggling mentally, this can help reduce any stress that you may have. 

Time Outside Provides Vitamin D

While it is true that only 10 minutes outside can get you plenty of this necessary nutrient, without making the effort to get outdoors, it can be easily overlooked. This is why health and wellness experts say that taking up yard work can help you stay well. It gets you outdoors intentionally, helping you to soak up more than enough Vitamin D.
