Here are some reasons keeping plants indoors are beneficial:
Plants can help fight colds: Indoor plants have been shown to reduce cold-related illnesses by more than 30%. This is due to their effect of increasing humidity levels and decreasing dust.
Plants can remove airborne contaminants: We breathe the same air again and again, potentially inhaling harmful substances that are trapped inside. Indoor plants can help to remove pollutants including VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that cause headaches, nausea, and more.
Plants can make you happy: House plants can contribute to a feeling of well being, making you calmer and more optimistic. Studies have shown that patients who face a garden view in their hospital rooms often recover more quickly than those facing a wall.
Plants can improve your mental health: Caring for a living thing can help when you’re depressed and lonely, giving you a purpose in life.
Plants can offer treatment: Some indoor plants, like aloe, can be applied to skin and offer pain relief.
Plants can make your brain work better: Potted plants and flowers can improve your idea generation, mood, and more.
Plants are natural humidifiers: Instead of buying a humidifier machine to soften the air, just bring in a plant or two.
Plants can improve your sleep: Gerbera daisies give off oxygen at night. Filling a vase in your bedroom with these flowers can improve your night’s rest.
They can be pretty house decors: Nothing says welcome more than a beautiful hanging plant at your front entrance.
