Why you need house plants in your life

Image of plant with quote from Albert Einstein saying look deep into nature and you will understand everything better I confess: I’m not a naturally green fingered person. I like the idea of beautiful plants and gardens but it’s a skill I’m working on.

Luckily, I married a keen gardener who has covered our house with plants which I love.

However, I’m not just all about the aesthetic. Indoor plants have been proven to increase mental wellbeing and physical health.

1. They improve your mood and reduce stress.

2. They reduce breathing problems by improving the air quality.

3. They reduce blood pressure, as well as headaches and fatigue.

4. Patients in hospital have a higher tolerance to pain.

5. They increase levels in productivity for people working in offices.

Nature never fails to amaze.
