Tend your garden and your bones

Share

Have you just spent gruelling hours in your garden? Well, all that work will pay off when you see flowers blooming, plants growing and shrubs filling out

Have you just spent gruelling hours in your garden? Well, all that work will pay off when you see flowers blooming, plants growing and shrubs filling out. And here is another reward-your bones will be happier too! A recent study published in the Journal of Women and Aging has revealed that two of the best bone builders are weight lifting and yard work. After reviewing a number of different activities, yard work was found to be even better at boosting bone density than jogging! So don't feel guilty about dusty sneakers and not joining the gym down the street-dig, squat, lift and weed your way to stronger, healthier bones!
