How Gardening can help relieve Covid 19 stress

During the Covid19 some people stressed about how they looked like without the gyms. Here is one way to destress: Gardening.

Mind Body Green wrote about this issue saying that seeing greenery can help with body positivity. Having access to nature is vital for our mental health and wellbeing.

During times in lockdown I have been lucky to have lots of green space and have been lucky to help with the weeding. Some people might live in apartments and for them a indoor plant or two would be enough to surfice. Having access to nature is vital for our health and wellbeing. When you are in nature you tend to not think about what you look like body wise.

During the times of Covid19 many people have lost their jobs and some people have had to look after loved ones and can’t tend to their own gardens. For those that have lost their jobs but don’t have anyone, why not offer to look after people’s gardens? You could do it for a tiny price of $20-$40 per garden per hour.

When I’m weeding I’m not thinking about anything. It is physical work that is good for the mind and the body. You bend down and pick up the weeds. Once you have finished the weeding; your garden looks nice and clean. And you feel a lot happier.

Guys a little goes a long way and during the pandemic the garden is the best way to destress.


Being happy with your weight

With so many articles nowadays on eating disorders, I’d thought I’d write this post. Too many people in the world have things such as anorexia and bulimia and at such a young age.

As a student studying Online Journalism and Nutrition and Exercise, I find that this issue is of a concern to me and other dieticians. It is a cost to society and some people take their lives due to the anxiety and fear. People are also hospitalized and the cost of treatment can be too much for some.

 

Yes, being apple-shaped is dangerous. But there is such a thing as being too thin and sickly. The WHO classifies that having a BMI of 18.5  and under is dangerously thin. Luckily for us, there are body shapes and types and I’m a pear shape person. The WHO also classifies people who have a BMI of 30 or greater as obese.

We should be happier for being healthier rather than being a skinny model. Too many times on TV and in magazines we see these skinny models which most of them have been photoshopped to look good. There should be bigger models which are healthy but then again they lose their readership and viewers and business will close.

We should be happier with who we are rather than what we look like. We shouldn’t judge people on what they look like alone.
