Plants help you breathe better
Having plants around you, especially indoors, helps improve the air quality. Plants help reduce carbon dioxide and increase oxygen levels in the air. They also help increase humidity, reduce levels of pollutants in the air, reduce airborne dust levels and keep air temperatures down, all of which help us breathe better.
Plants help you focus
There's just something about having plants around us. People in offices with an interior garden or green space are found to be more productive and take fewer sick days. Studies have shown that having plants around us or being outside in nature helps to increase focus and concentration and boost memory.
Plants make you happier
Surrounding yourself with beautiful things, or things you love, naturally improves your mood. Perhaps having something to take care of such as a small plant, and seeing it grow and bloom positively affects our overall well-being. Whatever the reason, caring for plants has tangible as well as intangible benefits. Who knew that surrounding ourselves with things we love can make us feel happier?
