Build indoor plants into your wellbeing strategy

The Christmas holidays are over, finances can be tight, the days are short and the weather often dull.

This year Blue Monday falls on January 16th.

But did you know that plants can boost your mood and bring a smile to your face, even on the darkest of days?

Here’s three reasons plants can help

Stress reduction

Research has found that interaction with indoor plants at work or in the home can help to reduce stress. With many of us spending most of our time indoors, especially in winter, adding natural elements to our indoor environment can have a positive effect on our stress levels. Simply a view of nature can have a help boost our mood, while interacting with plants brings additional comfort and soothing.

Productivity Boost

We all feel better when we finish the day feeling we have worked hard and achieved our goals. Well, plants have been proven to help us be more productive. Researchers have found that people perform better when there are plants in the room. Furthermore, with plants in the workplace fewer sick days were reported.

Plants improve air quality

In the 1980’s, a NASA report found that plants were effective at absorbing toxins in the air. Plants clean the air by taking in VOC’s in the atmosphere emitted by man made products. The plants take the toxins into their roots and are turned into food for the plant. Leaving us clean air to breath.

So, if you want to help your staff remain upbeat in the office in winter, adding greenery can bring a smile and give people the lift they require.
