Doctor’s Orders: For Better Health, Put Your Hands in the Dirt | TakePart

I love this!  Prescriptions not only for eating fruits and vegetables instead of taking pills, but actually to get out and garden, grow your own food.

Instead of scribbling out a drug dosage, some doctors are asking patients to incorporate good habits of self-care (like more movement and leafy greens) into their routine, not just as rote advice but as a medical directive—often before their health goes haywire. Doctor’s orders.

And not only does  gardening provide moderate activity and let you be intimately involved with your own food produce, but research has also show that getting your hands in the dirt can make you happier (really! UK researchers found a friendly bacteria that is common in soil produces similar effects in the brain as antidepressants).   So what are you waiting for!  Get out and garden!

“Death was briefly summarized as the separation of body and soul. For some death and everything that happens after is tied up in religious beliefs. For others what will happen after life is taken from fairy tales or story books read as children. Most believe death is dark and grisly. Some think there is nothing after this life. I’m not sure anyone will really understand what death is until they have experienced it themselves.

Xibalba is one soul’s internal struggle to navigate through all of these religious and secular beliefs. It is a tussle to find peace with a life passed and what was left behind so the soul can accept the end and move to what is waiting after. “
