Gardening Could Be the Hobby That Helps You Live to 100

Want to live longer? Try gardening! Many of the world’s oldest living people are gardeners. In Earth’s “blue zones” where people live the longest, many of them garden into their 80’s and 90’s. Of course, fresh air and exercise are very beneficial, and homegrown fruits and vegetables can improve diets, too. Scientific studies have shown that gardening reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and makes people happier. It may lessen risks for dementia, diabetes, and heart diseases. Gardening is a great way to add to the quality of life, and maybe even live to 100.
