Having plants in your home and office can make you feel better. For one thing, they help purify the air of toxins that may be present. They also release oxygen into the air which is vital for our health and keep us more alert. In addition to these benefits, some research has shown that indoor plants can increase productivity by making us more focused on our tasks when surrounded by greenery.
Hence, houseplants can make you healthier, happier and more productive. A study in the journal Frontiers of Energy Systems Research found that plants are 31% effective at removing toxins from a room.
The NASA research on indoor houseplant benefits says they’re even better than natural air purifiers. Studies show people feel less stressed out when surrounded by healthy greenery; some have reported seeing their stress levels drop as much as 15%. If we are talking about mood perks, consider this—a 2010 Harvard Medical School paper calculated there were over 100 million visits per year due to positive feelings generated via gardening activity alone and don’t forget those savings on healthcare costs. So, are you ready to add a little green to your life?
Creating Your Own Plant Sanctuary
The idea of indoor gardening is something that many people are interested in. It can be difficult at first, but including plants in your home will lead to a variety of benefits like improved mood and general happiness as well as creating spaces where you feel less lonely or depressed. All because caring for living things gives us purpose.
Choosing Your Indoor Plants
Houseplants are the perfect way to liven up any space. They’re simple and relatively maintenance-free, making them great additions for homes with limited living room floor space or busy families who don’t always have time on their hands.
When choosing which type of plant would work best in your environment consider its light requirements. Tropical species need brighter surroundings while desert plants prefer lower energies such as those found indoors where it is warm year-round.
Houseplants are great for those with a busy schedule that has little time to spend on gardening. They provide an easy way of caring for houseplants and letting them thrive without much maintenance or care, making it possible even if you only get one plant per year.
