Houseplant Appreciation Day is January 10, 2016.
If that sounds like a strange thing to celebrate, you may want to learn a little more about green plants. Common houseplants are actually potent agents of health and wellness; with the body of research supporting the claims, it is clear that filling your home and office with green plants is one of the most affordable and simple ways to improve your life. Here are some ways you can immediately put green plants to work for you.
Clean Your Home: Modern conveniences are making our interior air very unhealthy. We seal up windows and recirculate air through air conditioners; and many products as common as clothing, furniture, rugs and paints all release toxins into the air. With nowhere to go, we continually breathe them in. Green plants actually improve air quality, filtering pollutants and filling space with clean oxygen. You can expect fewer sniffles, coughs and headaches when surrounded with greenery.
Get Work Done: Plants are known to promote serenity and a sense of well being. They are also linked to higher levels of productivity, sharper focus, improved concentration and more alertness. Therefore, green plants are the perfect addition to any office space or dorm room. Not only do green plants make an interior more professional, they actually make sure your work gets done.
Feel Better Soon: If you are wondering what to bring your loved in the hospital, green plants are the clear choice. Research has shown that patients surrounded by plants have lower blood pressure, lower anxiety levels, require less pain medication and are generally released more quickly than those in sterile rooms. So bring in the greenery! It will make your patient more peaceful, surround them with beauty and help with their healing.
