These Indoor Plants Are Sure to Boost Your Mood

However, the benefits of including one or more houseplants indoors have remained steady. In actuality, there are a number of indoor plants that are favored for their ability to reduce stress, enhance productivity, and boost your mood. Some experts have proven that the unique properties of some houseplants can even help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal depression. These mood-boosting properties make having houseplants one of the best things you can do for your personal well-being.

Without a doubt, all plants generate oxygen. As for houseplants, they can help freshen stale indoor air and even remove some of the common pollutants you may find in your Fergus Falls rental property. While research has presented that one needs over 600 plants to completely purify the air in a 1,500-square-foot house, owning just a few plants could still produce measurable improvements in indoor air quality.

Most 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 property to improve air quality include spider plants, succulents like aloe vera, the peace lily, lavender, and Boston ferns. Almost all of these plants also have a pleasant fragrance to boot.

An increase in air quality can have a direct effect on a person’s mood and houseplants can lighten your mind and body. By being in a room with plants and flowers, it has been shown to reduce stress, improve concentration, and even soothe minor aches and pains. Although it is not yet a concrete fact why plants bear this effect, the prevailing theory suggests that humans have a need to connect with nature. When we do, the outcome is an increase in happiness.

Even though just the act of taking care of any houseplant can make you feel happier, several plants are more beautiful at it. To give you an idea, when trying to avoid a case of the blues, studies have advertised that no plant does a better job than the snake plant. Famous 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 one can get to clean airborne toxins from the air. Furthermore, it also does something that other houseplants don’t do: it releases fresh oxygen into the air at night. Planting one or two of these plants in a bedroom could significantly improve air quality, which is expected to 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, too. Easy to grow, peppermint plants thrive indoors all year round as long as the soil is kept at the right moisture levels.

Regardless if 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 thing your plant is ready to do. Everything considered, these advantages can assist in improving your life as a whole day by day.
