These Indoor Plants Are Sure to Boost Your Mood

Pristine Bedroom with A Pair of Ferns by the WindowHouseplants have long been a source of natural beauty and charm, though conceding that indoor plant trends do come and go, the benefits of including one or more houseplants indoors have remained steady. In actual fact, there are a number of indoor plants widely known for their ability to reduce stress, enhance productivity, and boost your mood. It appears that the majority of experts do believe that the unique properties of some houseplants can even help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal depression. These mood-boosting properties do make possessing houseplants among the best things you can do for your personal well-being.

It is basically accepted that all plants generate oxygen. But with houseplants, the implication is that they also greatly help to freshen stale indoor air and even remove some of the common pollutants you may find in your Hearne rental property. Although studies have established that you would need over 600 plants to completely purify the air in a 1,500-square-foot house, obtaining simply a few plants could naturally still produce measurable improvements in indoor air quality.

Some 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 amazing ability to improve air quality include spider plants, succulents like aloe vera, the peace lily, lavender, and Boston ferns. A lot of these plants even do come along with a pleasant fragrance to boot.

An increase in air quality can have a direct effect on a person’s mood, at the same time, houseplants could certainly make you feel so much better in a lot of other ways too. Even just being in the room with plants and flowers has been shown to reduce stress, improve concentration, and even soothe minor aches and pains. While experts don’t figure out exactly why plants have this therapeutic effect, the prevailing theory suggests that humans have a need to connect with nature. When we do, the result is pure bliss.

Despite that just the act of taking care of any houseplant can make you feel happier, quite a few plants are better at it than others. For instance, when trying to avoid a case of the blues, studies have stated that no plant does a better job than the snake plant. Commonly known for its tall sword-shaped leaves and low maintenance requirements, the snake plant is both hardy and easy to grow. It is, hands down, one of the best houseplants you could possibly possess to clean airborne toxins from the air. Not to mention, it also does something that other houseplants don’t do: it releases fresh oxygen into the air at night. Arranging one or two of these plants in a bedroom can, indeed, significantly improve air quality, which can then, in turn, 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 for as long the soil is kept at the right moisture levels.

Whether you put up 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 for sure, one thing your plant is certain to do. Considering everything, these benefits can definitely improve and uplift your spirit as well as increase your creativity and productivity every single passing day.
