Plant and flower health benefits
Plants and flowers are more than just beautiful additions to your home. They also offer some fantastic health benefits. Here are some of the greatest advantages of welcoming nature into your home.
Improved air quality
There are a number of types of plants that are excellent for purifying the air. Different types of plants filter different substances out of the air. This is why you may want to keep a selection of plants in your home. Plants also release water into the air which is great for your respiratory system. Dry air will dry out your breathing passages and slightly higher humidity is great for keeping that nose happy! If you suffer from any allergies, make sure that the plants you choose either do not bloom or, if they do, that they have pollen which is spread by insects rather than air.
Helps with anxiety and stress
Nature has a wonderful way of soothing the mind. The colour green is known to help ease stress and encourage creativity. The potted plants in your home will have an even greater effect if some of them are gifts. This way, when you look at each plant, you will think about the sender.
As briefly mentioned above, greenery in your home is great for the mind. Many studies have shown that green environments are excellent for learning. They help create a calm atmosphere and this then allows the mind to become more relaxed and focused. Learning or work sessions are that much more productive as a result.
Improve your mood
Flowers and plants have a wonderfully positive effect on the mood. In various studies, it has been revealed that people enjoy an instant positive boost as soon as they receive a fresh flower delivery! This positive mood continues for as long as the flowers last and the same can be said for potted plants.
