Whether it is at home, at the office, or even school, we are often subjected to a variety of stresses that, when it accummulates, we end up feeling out of sorts, moody, and even angry at the rest of the family for all the bad things that are happening to you. This is not really a good way to build healthy relationships which is why you need to look for an outlet so you don’t end up feeling wrung out. Aside from the usual steps such as working out to release excess energy, meditating, and the like, adding houseplants to your space may actually help you feel better, healthier, and happier too.
If you are too busy to spare time to take care of indoor plants but would like to add a bit of green to your space, such as your desk, the best option would be to care for succulents. These plants are great decorative pieces on your table and they can actually help prevent flu, headaches, coughs, and fevers too. They love the sunlight or even indirect sunlight, and they don’t need to be watered every day. You can soak it thoroughly to the point that the water drains at the bottom and wait until the soil becomes dry before you water it again.
Stress is not really healthy for you in the long run. Not only does it affect your mood but you’ll also end up feeling uptight, tensed, and prone to a variety of illnesses. What’s more, it will be hard for you to get a good night’s sleep because your mind is still thinking about all the problems that you are facing. Fortunately, adding lavender to your home is one way to ease the stress that you are feeling so you will feel calm and relaxed.
Peace lilies are worth considering for your home as they are beautiful and can even inspire your creativity too because they can help boost your brain function. This plant loves moist soil and plenty of indirect sunlight too so find a spot in your home where it can receive a good dose of sunshine while making sure that the soil is moist.
Another plant that you should add to your home is rosemary. This herbal plant is known to keep you focused on your task so you won’t find yourself easily distracted with all the goings on in your office or at home. It has a nice scent too which you can inhale by running your fingers through its leaves and inhaling it. You’ll find that you’ll be more alert too which can help increase your creativity and happiness levels too.
Philodendrons are one of the best plants that you can have in your home that will help increase your happiness. Research shows that watching plants grow before your eyes can actually reduce your stress levels as well as anxiety attacks so you will feel a whole lot better compared to before. However, this plant is not really ideal if you have pets around so place it on an area that cannot be reached easily but is still getting enough sunlight.
Aside from looking nice, Boston ferns is also a great humidifier. Adding this to your home can help remove the toxins in the air so you will feel better too. If you have dry skin, you should have this plant as it increases the moisture in the air.
