Houseplants have become a rather popular home accessory in the past few years and it’s clear to see why. There is much more to houseplants than simply brightening the room, the health benefits that go hand in hand with houseplant is also a big bonus.
So, what are the health benefits of Houseplants?
Mood Boosting – Studies have shown that having a houseplant can have a positive effect on people’s mood, and who doesn’t love being in a good mood?
Boost Creativity – Houseplants are not just a great home accessory but work great in office spaces too. If you have been working at home a lot more than normal due to the current situation, having a houseplant in your office space can help boost creativity, productivity and concentration.
Reduce Stress & Fatigue – There’s nothing quite like a bit of fresh air to help clear your head from any stress and this stems from reconnecting with nature. When we get in touch with nature our mental fatigue and stress levels are reduced. Houseplants improve the overall quality of your indoor living space and ultimately help reduce stress levels. It’s a great way to bring the outdoors in!
Subtly add a Calming Atmosphere – There have also been studies that state green is a naturally calming colour, by adding houseplants into your home you’re not only reaping the air purifying benefits but also the subtle calming effect they give off due to their colour.
