    It reminds me of being a child again. I never worried about germ when we played outside in the dirt.

    Almost nothing is more relaxing to me than digging, planting and weeding my garden - with my bare hands. It's a great way to take out my workday frustrations.

    One of my sisters is a self-described "germophobe." She catches virtually every "bug" and virus that comes along - and has skin issues due to the antibacterial and harsh chemicals she uses. On the other hand, my daughter and I purposely refuse to buy or use antibacterial products, use "grandma" cleaning products (read - vinegar, baking soda, borax, etc) whenever possible - and we almost never get sick. For us, a bad cold means we have sniffles for a day or two and that's it. We also don't jump to cold/sinus meds (don't even keep them in the house). I can't help but think that the difference is that our immune systems are allowed to do the job nature intended.

    admittedly, people germs freak me out....but there's no better therapy than digging in the garden dirt!
