How lovely the silence of growing things

1

Breathe easy surrounded by plants

Scientific studies show that indoor plants reduce concentrations of Volatile Organic Compounds and carbon dioxide from the air by absorbing these toxins through their leaves.

Plants also help create moisture in the air through the process of transpiration. The increased humidity makes it more difficult for flu viruses to survive, which goes to explain why some studies have shown how indoor plants can reduce sick-leave in the workplace by 60%! It's also why Grey's Anatomy has a "plant room" instead of a green room.

Plant parenthood is a rewarding experience

It's a time where you can disconnect from technology and spend time caring for a living thing external to yourself. Much like the practice of mindfulness, plant parenthood is all about patience and acceptance. We, intrinsically as humans have an innate connection and adoration of nature which is an experience difficult to articulate. However, it does explain why scientific studies show that the presence of plants can help reduce depressive feelings by 58% and reduce tension and anxiety by 44%.

3

Create a calm and tranquil environment to relax and unwind

Plants help reduce attention fatigue and restore a feeling of calm with your surroundings. One US study found that the presence of plants can increase memory retention by as much as 20%, as well as boosting productivity and creativity by 15%. Plants help get those creative juices flowing and are why they make great companions in any living or working space.
