These Indoor Plants Are Sure to Boost Your Mood

Pristine Bedroom with A Pair of Ferns by the WindowHouseplants have always been a carrier of untamed beauty, even with indoor plant trends being fickle, the benefits of including one or more houseplants indoors have remained steady. There are a number of indoor plants that are popular because of their ability to reduce stress, enhance productivity, and boost your mood. Some experts say that the unique properties of some houseplants can even help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal depression. Mood-boosting properties make acquiring houseplants one of the best things you can do for your personal well-being.

We all know for a fact that all plants generate oxygen. In connection with houseplants, this means that they can freshen stale indoor air and even remove some of the common pollutants you may find in your Woodward Park rental property. While studies have determined that you should have over 600 plants to completely purify the air in a 1,500-square-foot house, having a few plants could help produce measurable improvements in indoor air quality.

Many, if not all, of the more popular indoor plants, help boost oxygen levels and remove toxins like xylene, formaldehyde, and toluene from the air. The most common houseplants with the capability to improve air quality include spider plants, succulents like aloe vera, the peace lily, lavender, and Boston ferns. Almost all of these plants also serve a pleasant fragrance to boot.

An increase in air quality can have a direct effect on a person’s mood. At the same time, houseplants can improve how you feel as well. Merely being in the room with plants and flowers has been shown to reduce stress, improve concentration, and even soothe minor aches and pains. However, experts cannot see exactly why plants have this impact. The prevailing theory suggests that humans have a need to connect with nature. When we give it a do, it will give us greater happiness.

Just the act of taking care of any houseplant can make you feel happier, and a number of plants are more accustomed to it than a few. To illustrate, when trying to avoid a case of the blues, studies have suggested that no plant does a better job than the snake plant. Admired for its tall sword-shaped leaves and low maintenance requirements, the snake plant is both hardy and easy to grow. It is one of the best houseplants worth owning to clean airborne toxins from the air. And it also does something that other houseplants don’t do: it releases fresh oxygen into the air at night. Putting one or two of these plants in a bedroom should significantly improve air quality, which will inevitably result in better sleep and improved mood.

Another plant with proven mood-boosting qualities is peppermint. In studies conducted by neuroscientists, the peppermint plant has been shown to boost mood, memory, and mental awareness. Also, this plant gives off that distinctive peppermint aroma that can make your kitchen smell great. Easy to grow, peppermint plants thrive indoors all year round on the assumption that the soil is kept at the right moisture levels.

Whether or not you get a houseplant to clean your indoor air, add natural beauty to your home, or to give you the feeling of satisfaction that comes with caring for living things, there is one action your plant is able to do. On reflection, these advantages should help to better your mood and aid you in becoming more stylish and efficient day by day.
