These Indoor Plants Are Sure to Boost Your Mood

Pristine Bedroom with A Pair of Ferns by the WindowHouseplants are a natural cause of attraction, but while sometimes indoor plant trends go up and down, the benefits of including one or more houseplants indoors have remained steady. In fact, there are a number of indoor plants renowned for their ability to reduce stress, enhance productivity, and boost your mood. In addition, a few gurus have experienced that the unique properties of some houseplants can even help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal depression. These mood-boosting properties make growing houseplants one of the best things you can do for your personal well-being.

It is public knowledge that all plants generate oxygen. With reference to houseplants, this supports the fact that they help freshen stale indoor air and even remove some of the common pollutants you may find in your Prosper rental property. Researchers have said that you would need over 600 plants to completely purify the air in a 1,500-square-foot house, taking possession of a few plants can surely produce measurable improvements in indoor air quality.

The lion’s share of the more popular indoor plants helps boost oxygen levels and remove toxins like xylene, formaldehyde, and toluene from the air. The most common houseplants that have the ability to improve air quality include spider plants, succulents like aloe vera, the peace lily, lavender, and Boston ferns. Most, if not all, of these plants, also exhale a pleasant fragrance to boot.

An increase in air quality can have a direct effect on a person’s mood; even so, houseplants make you feel energized in a lot of other aspects as well. Just by merely being in the room with plants and flowers has been shown to reduce stress, improve concentration, and even soothe minor aches and pains. In contempt of the truth that experts are baffled with why plants carry this effect, the prevailing theory suggests that humans have a need to connect with nature. When we can, we live longer.

Just the act of taking care of any houseplant can make you feel happier; most plants are more capable at it than some. To give an example, when trying to avoid a case of the blues, studies have proven that no plant does a better job than the snake plant. Popular for bearing tall sword-shaped leaves and low maintenance requirements, the snake plant is both hardy and easy to grow. It is among the best houseplants you can purchase to clean airborne toxins from the air. Moreover, it also does something that other houseplants don’t do: it releases fresh oxygen into the air at night. Correctly placing one or two of these plants in a bedroom can significantly improve air quality, which will certainly 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. The plant gives off that distinctive peppermint aroma that can make your kitchen smell great, as well. Easy to grow, peppermint plants thrive indoors all year round on the condition that the soil is kept at the right moisture levels.

Irrespective of whether 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 sure thing your plant will do. As a whole, these benefits can help to correct your personality and assist you in becoming more efficient in everything.
