Home Living : March 2nd 2010
2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, March 2, 2010 Plant seed of health » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Here's a great suggestion for people who don't get enough exercise -- and that's most of us. Incorporate gardening into your exercise regime for a fun, productive way to keep fit. Recent reports have highlighted the importance of keeping fit after it was revealed nine out of 10 Australians over the age of 50 don't exercise enough. People who don't exercise regularly have higher levels of cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer and high blood pressure. The good news is that just five hours of moderate aerobic exercise each week can cancel 30 years of age-related decline in cardiovascular fitness after just six weeks. And according to Sebastian Tesoriero, editor of new gardening website plantthis.com.au, you can improve your fitness without overburdening yourself by using gardening as one of your weekly exercise sessions. ''Our gardens provide an opportunity to escape the rush of a gym and have a workout in a calm and healthy environment," Tesoriero says. ''Once our working lives slow up, a low- maintenance garden loses some of its appeal. Pruning hedges, preparing vegie beds and replenishing mulch can be embraced as one of your week's workouts rather just than a burden.'' Although the usual slip-slop-slap warnings apply when working outside, stress instantly falls away amongst the sights, smells and sounds of the garden.
