In today’s world, health has become more important than ever. It has also become evident that there is a clear connection between the body and mind. This is why so many people are looking for ways to ensure their mental wellbeing. While some lifestyle changes might seem drastic, there are easier yet highly effective options too. The right potted plants in your home, for example, can have a wonderful effect on your mind and, by default, your body too.
The peace lily is not only one of the most beautiful potted plants available. It is also know for removing toxins like benzene, ammonia, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air. These toxins can result in several health concerns including respiratory problems, headaches, nausea and more. While this plant works to clean up the air in your home, you can enjoy the lush green leaves and soothing white blooms. You can display this plant just about anywhere since it does not require direct sunlight.
Cacti are popular potted plants because they grow slowly and require minimal care. You don’t have to worry about watering them often or repotting them anytime soon. They also release plenty of oxygen at night which is all the more reason to keep them in your bedroom. Fresh air is an excellent sleep aid. When you are well rested, your mind and body work better. This means that you will have more energy, clarity and you will be more productive. You will also feel more positive.
If you want potted plants that serve multiple purposes, look no further than the aloe! Aloe plants improve the visual appeal of a room. They also encourage creativity thanks to their deep, green colour. If that’s not enough, the gel inside these plants can be used to treat a wide variety of ailments including insect bites, cuts and burns! The plant is a succulent which means that it requires similar care to a cactus. In other words, you don’t have to water it too often and it will not require daily attention.
Whether you are looking for potted plants to improve your own wellbeing or cheer up somebody special, these three are all excellent options. If you do send one of them as a gift, make sure that you include a sincere message to recipient and let them know just how much you care and appreciate them.
