These Indoor Plants Are Sure to Boost Your Mood

Pristine Bedroom with A Pair of Ferns by the WindowHouseplants are carriers of incomparable beauty, even if indoor plant trends sometimes decline, the benefits of including one or more houseplants indoors have remained steady. As a matter of fact, there are a number of indoor plants that are highly regarded for their ability to reduce stress, enhance productivity, and boost your mood. What is more, most scientists claim that the unique properties of some houseplants can even help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal depression. These mood-boosting properties make growing a lot of houseplants, one of the best things you can do for your personal well-being.

It is well known that all plants generate oxygen. With the case of houseplants, this indicates that they can revive and freshen stale indoor air and even remove some of the common pollutants you may find in your South Meadows rental property. Nevertheless, experiments have shown that a home will need over 600 plants to completely purify the air in a 1,500-square-foot house, purchasing just a few plants will still produce measurable improvements in indoor air quality.

A large population of more popular indoor plants helps boost oxygen levels and remove toxins like xylene, formaldehyde, and toluene from the air. The most common houseplants that bear the ability to improve air quality include spider plants, succulents like aloe vera, the peace lily, lavender, and Boston ferns. The majority of these plants also have of a pleasant fragrance to boot.

An increase in air quality can have a direct effect on a person’s mood, yet houseplants could make you feel better in a lot of other ways. Being in the room with plants and flowers has been shown to reduce stress, improve concentration, and even soothe minor aches and pains. Experts may not know precisely why plants have this effect; the prevailing theory suggests that humans have a need to connect with nature. When we get to connect, we attain more bliss.

Just the act of taking care of any houseplant can make you feel happier; a lot of plants are more efficient at it than others. For instance, when trying to avoid a case of the blues, studies have shown 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 undoubtedly one of the best houseplants you can grow to clean airborne toxins from the air. However, it does something that other houseplants don’t do: it releases fresh oxygen into the air at night. Positioning one or two of these plants in a bedroom should significantly improve air quality, which is most likely 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, as well. Easy to grow, peppermint plants thrive indoors all year round with the condition that the soil is kept at the right moisture levels.

Regardless of whether 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 act your plant is sure to display. In general, these benefits are all positive effects on your lifestyle as a whole.
