There are a number of benefits of having plants indoors with a lot of research going in to the subject.
These benefits are as follows:
- Plants can trap toxins in their own tissue or break them down, releasing them as harmless by-products purifying the air.
- They can lower your risk of illness helping with things such as itchy eyes, runny noses, dry throats, and fatigue.
- They have also shown to reduce stress and anxiety levels, acting as a mood enhancer. After all, who doesn’t feel good when someone buys them a bunch of flowers.
- Plants can also help people to think clearly, improving the accuracy of work and productivity. Next time you’re struggling with some work just look at a plant and watch yourself go.
Some studies have actually shown that just looking at a photo of nature can help with some of the above.
So, with all this in mind, the above was a really convoluted way of saying “put your Christmas tree up”!
