Why doing work in your yard is good?

God has given plants to man. Genesis 2:15 says, " The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." God put Adam in the Garden to take care of the plants.  God has put it mankind to love to take care of the lawn and flowers.
There are health benefits of gardening. I will talk about the benefits. There is medicine that we all use that come from plants so gardening is good. Here is how doing yard work is good for your health.
I will work on the yard everyday for 30 minutes to an hour. It makes me happy.
After all, the Centers for Diseases Control  says, “Gardening is an excellent way to get physical activity. Active people are less likely than inactive people to be obese or have high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, depression, colon cancer, and premature death.”
The activity of this works is excellent. An article in the Journal of Health Psychology  titled, "Gardening Promotes Nueronendocrine and Affective Restoration from Stress"  found that gardening leads to decreased cortisol levels and positive moods which can “promote relief from acute stress.”
Gardens have beauty so it makes us think about great things. If you worked on your garden, it makes you feel good because flowers and plants are made beautiful.

The history that we must read

The names Leah gave her children, expressed her respect and regard, both to God and to her husband. Reuben, or See a son, with this thought, Now will my husband love me; Levi, or joined, expecting, Now will my husband be joined unto me. Mutual affection is both the duty and comfort of the married relation; and yoke-fellows should study to recommend themselves to each other, 1Co 7:33,34. She thankfully acknowledges the kind providence of God in hearing her. Whatever supports and comforts us under afflictions, or tends to our deliverance from them, God must be owned in it. Her fourth son she called Judah, or praise, saying, Now will I praise the Lord. This was he, of whom, as concerning the flesh, Christ came. Whatever is the matter of our rejoicing, ought to be the matter of our thanksgiving. Fresh favors should quicken us to praise God for former favors; Now will I praise the Lord more and better than I have done. All our praises must center in Christ, both as the matter of them, and as the Mediator of them. He descended after the flesh from him whose name was Praise, and He is our praise. Is Christ formed in my heart? Now will I praise the Lord.

Genesis 29:31-35


31 And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.
32 And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.
33 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the Lord hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.
34 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.
35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.
