The Benefits of Indoor Plants

I won’t bore you with the hundreds of research projects done in the last ten years that definitively show plants as vitally important to the health of every human being, animal, and organism. I’ll just mention that including live plants in your indoor environment accomplishes many goals, including:
  • Lowering your risk of illness
  • Helping you feel better emotionally
  • Promoting healing in hospitals
  • Providing cleaner air
  • Enhancing your memory and concentration

And by the way, they add a design element to the interior of your home for very little investment and almost no maintenance on your part. 

So, we can stipulate that having plants in your life contribute to a healthier, calmer, more productive, and visually pleasing perspective on life. You can start by putting a plant on your desk at work. Indoor air pollution increases your risk for stroke, ischemic heart disease, COPD, respiratory infections in children, and even lung cancer. Being in or near nature helps to mitigate and sometimes even remove those environmental risks.

Make the Indoors More Like the Outdoors

Since you spend on the average approximately 80 to 90 percent of your time indoors, this seems like an easy way to get mild detoxification benefits in your home and office. Plants are an air purifier and can remove dangerous substances found in furniture and clothing, as well as remove 10 percent of the carbon dioxide in the air. Plants help increase air humidity which minimizes dry air and dust in the room. 

I Have a Photo of Nature on My Desk

The research also indicates that some of those same benefits derived from having plants close by can be achieved simply by looking at a photograph of the outdoors. While that may be true, to attain the maximum effect from having plants in your indoor environment, it pays to have a real living plant, or several plants, close by. As far as anyone can tell, there is no downside to having plants in your home.
