Gardening is a great way to connect with nature and relax. According to a Psychology Today article, gardening can provide many mental health benefits for your daily life 1. Here are some of the benefits of gardening that emerged from the article:

  1. Practicing Acceptance: Gardening can help you accept the limits of your control and the unpredictability of life, which can lead to more peace of mind 2.
  2. Slowing Down: When you enter a garden, time tends to slow down. Your mind and body relax as you step away from the daily bustle, and you can connect with your spirit 3.
  3. Stress Relief: Planting a beautiful garden can be a great way to relieve stress. The act of making your particular stretch of nature into a haven can be a stress reliever in itself, and the garden that you create can bring you even more peace 4.

It’s possible that the combination of these benefits and the satisfaction of seeing your garden grow and flourish could be the reason why you feel so peaceful and positive when you are gardening.
