Why do you need plants in your office and home in San Diego? Indoor plants offer countless health benefits, both physiological and psychological. So having plants in your San Diego home or office is a must.
Here are the nine most notable reasons why you have to have plants in your office or home.
Plants increase happiness
Research has shown that the presence of plants at work leads to reduced stress and anxiety, increased feelings of calm, a marked improvement in mood and self-esteem and increased feelings of optimism and control. Office plants also help ease feelings of depression and promote a general sense of well-being.
Green plants lowered blood pressure
There were studies performed in hospitals, which showed that patients with plants in their rooms had lower blood pressure and heart rates than patients whose rooms did not contain live plants.
Live plants help with faster recovery from illness
Patients in hospital rooms with green plants recover faster and, on average, are released from the hospital earlier than patients in rooms without plants.
They negate cigarette smoke
Did you know that a plant’s ability to purify the air extends to removing the pollutants contained in cigarette smoke? The Peace Lily in particular is an excellent choice if you’re a smoker or live with one and you want to reduce the effects of cigarette smoke on others in the house.
Many plants humidify the air
Plants are natural humidifiers, breathing moisture into the air we breathe, which is helpful for preventing dryness in the skin, throat, nose and lips, and can help ward off cold and flu symptoms.
Potted plants improve sleep
Plants can help promote deep sleep by giving off oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide. The Gerbera daisy is not just a pretty flower, it’s an excellent oxygen producer and a great addition to your bedroom to help improve your sleep.
Live plants improve mental health
Caring for something living is great therapy when you’re depressed or lonely.
They help with focus and enhance mental activity
By increasing the oxygen in the air you breathe and removing pollutants, plants improve your concentration and memory, heighten your attention and improve your creativity.
They can be your first aid treatment
Plants can be great in first aid for a variety of ailments. To name a few, Aloe Vera is great first aid for burns, while Comfrey and Arnica can help with bruises and sprains, Calendula heals wounds and soothes skin, and Chamomile soothes an upset stomach.
With a minimal initial outlay and no ongoing costs, living and working with plants could well be the best decision you ever made for your health.
