I know some people who constantly complain. It’s because they are bored. Their mind and their body are idle. What is there to do but complain? Don’t you get tired listening to them? Day in and day out, they have something to complain about. Don’t you want to tell them to stop and get a life. Enough already.
These people have no interest in other activities. Aside from work, what do they do? Nothing. They get up in the morning, get ready for work and after work, they said they are too exhausted to do anything.
When they retire, they have no interest in anything and life becomes too boring for them. They should try to get involved in other activities while they are still working so when they retire, something will fill up their time.
Gardening is one of the best activities to try your hands on. It is also inexpensive, cheaper than going to the gym and more health benefits to you and if you plant fruits and vegetables, you get the benefits of tasting the best food there is. Another health benefit is you get a free exercise without knowing it. You don’t even have to spend money on gas to go to the gym and you can do it anytime when you are home. Yes, you can learn how to garden. There is no such thing as black thumb.
I used to work long hours and still have time to putter around in the garden. It is the most relaxing experience you can do. Instead of going to the gym, I used to garden in the morning before I went to work and then again when I came home from work.
There is something in gardening that soothes your well-being. You use all your muscle while digging, weeding, reaching for errant weeds, carrying all the soil and compost. Just looking at those pretty flowers seem to clear your mind of those cobwebs and beautify your landscape in the process.
So learn how to garden and keep busy. It’s the best exercise around. Your blood will start circulating, your mind will start to get active again and you get fresh air outdoors. Soon your whole outlook in life will change into positive thinking and you will stop getting bored.
