The Healing Benefits of Gardening
Experienced entrepreneur John F. Abate owns three companies in New Jersey that provide high quality printed guides, either by mail or online, on topics that include horse race handicapping, selection of winning lottery numbers, and winning at casino slots. The companies are Marketforce in Clarksburg, Wintrack in Perrineville, and Success Publishers LLC in Millstone Township. When away from work, John F. Abate enjoys gardening.

Nature, even if demonstrated by just a small garden, can provide dramatic healing effects. It was observed that post-surgery patients who viewed trees from their hospital windows had a quicker recovery, shorter hospital stays, and took fewer pain relievers than similar patients who could only look at the walls of their rooms.

However, the healing effects of gardens go beyond garden views. Several studies have shown that gardening is particularly valuable to people with challenging and uncontrollable personal circumstances that are adversely affecting their emotional state and physical health.

In a study that involved elderly people in an assisted living facility, the participants attended a four-week class on how to care for indoor plants. Each person was given responsibility to care for a plant. At the conclusion of the study, indoor gardeners demonstrated increased alertness, greater happiness, and better health and quality of life than those who did not participate in the study. The researchers also noted that the participants required less staff care and were more sociable and less agitated.
