Burn Away Calories In Your Garden

Gardening was always considered as a beneficial and healthy activity. With the emphasis slowly, but surely turning to healthy living, health experts opine// that there’s nothing like a bit of gardening to rev up your metabolism.

You can turn on whatever music you want. It's a good way to break away from the daily rigor we all go through," Roth said.

Relf said that a recent study from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City had found that women recovering from breast-cancer surgery were able to counter depression by walking around in the garden.
