Spring's here, and though some of us are dealing with freak spring snowstorms, it's getting warm enough in most of the country to start prepping your backyard garden with peas, lettuces, and spring flowers. If the idea of digging in the dirt has never much appealed to you, consider this: A growing number of studies are finding improved mental and physical health benefits of gardening that extend far beyond the obvious rewards of exercise and fresh air. And in this economy, the free food certainly doesn't hurt. There's no need to dig up your entire backyard, either.
现在是春天,尽管人们正生活在春季反常的暴风雪天气中,全国大部分地区气候开始转暖,人们也开始准备在花园里种植豌豆,莴笋和春天的花。如果在地上挖土并不太吸引你,那就考虑一下这个吧:越来越多研究发现园艺工作有利于增强精神和身体健康,远超过从锻炼和新鲜空气获得的好处。而且从经济角度来说,免费食品没有带来损失。也没有必要对整个后院都进行挖掘。

You need only a window box or a few houseplants to see these improvements in your health:
你只需要一个窗台花盆箱或一些室内植物,就可以改善你的身体健康:

1: Improve your satisfaction with life.
1. 提高对生活的满足感。

It's hard not to enjoy life when you're surrounded by flowers, vegetables, and all the wildlife they attract—and now there's science to back that up. Professors from the University of Texas and Texas A&M asked 298 older adults how they would rate their "zest for life," levels of optimism, and overall resolution and fortitude and found that gardeners had significantly higher scores in all those areas than non-gardeners.
当你身处鲜花,蔬菜和所有野生物之中时,你很难不去享受生活,而且如今也有科学根据。德克萨斯大学和德州农工大学教授访问298名老年人是如何评价他们的“生活热情”,乐观水平,总体决心和勇气,发现园艺工作者在这些问题中比非园艺工作者得到的分数明显高了很多。

Considering that antidepressant use among adults over 65 has nearly tripled since the 1980s, gardening could be as useful as Prozac for warding off the blues in our aging population.
就成年人服用抗抑郁剂而言,从20世纪80年代开始,超过65岁服用抗抑郁剂的老年人增加了两倍,园艺工作对老年人来说可以当成跟百忧解的预防忧郁作用一样有效。
