Gardening with a group
The neighbourhood that plants together drops a pants size together, says new research. A recent study from the University of Utah found people who participate in community gardening have a lower body mass index — as well as reduced odds of being overweight — than their non-gardening neighbours. (For some women, it amounted to an 11-pound difference!)
Bonus: Studies show gardening is a major stress reliever and mood booster, not to mention great exercise.
