Houseplants & Their Effect on Our Health…

As a person who always opted for convenience, I never would have thought to have houseplants in my space. I always thought they were a lot of work, and I did’t really see a benefit of having them inside the home.

I am always online, reading about natural ways to be more connected with nature, and how that benefits your own personal wellbeing. I found so many inspiring spaces that included houseplants in them, and something about the plants, was calling me more and more.

I found countless articles on indoor plants that can cleanse your air, provide mental clarity in the workspace, and plants that are okay for your furry friends.

After reading up on all types of plants, I went out and bought two houseplants, which then turned into two more…and then two more. These plants have made my living spaces feel cleaner, and more cozy. A lot of the work I do is from home, so it is really important for me to not only feel like I’m home, but I always feel a need to include little pieces of nature in my spaces as well.

NASA released a chart of the best plants to have if you want something to help kill toxins in your air. Now if you aren’t looking for that, any houseplant will add positivity and love into your home. That is unless it makes your allergies (if you have them) worse of course. I would also suggest that if you have pets, to read up on which plants are okay for your little furry friend.

Even if you don’t care about the health impacts indoor plants can have on your everyday life, plants add something special to the home that a piece of plastic never could. They look great in the home and even in instagram posts….if you’re into that sort of thing. 🙂

I really won’t ever invest my money into a fake plant ever again. My plants that I have just in my bedroom and office area have improved my quality of home life in so many ways. On top of that, they are SO EASY to take care of. I water them all once a day, maybe even every other, and they are thriving. You just have to make sure to read labels, and find out if the plant is right for you.

I encourage you to go out and get a plant of your own to take care of. I guarantee your first will not be your last.

 

With love and positivity,
