Greener Spaces: Health Benefits of Interior Plantscaping
Have you ever had a bad day and thought to yourself, "I just need a drink"? Well, forget about the alcohol and grab yourself a houseplant instead! Studies have shown that having plants in your home can actually boost your mood and make you feel happier. Plus, unlike a drink, your plant won't judge you for binge-watching The Office for the tenth time in a row. So next time you're feeling down, just remember: a little greenery can go a long way in cheering up your mood (and your living room).
Not at home and need a little boost as well, look no further than interior plantscaping. The benefits of bringing plants into the office go far beyond just adding a touch of greenery to the décor. Don't chew on your pencil from stress or draw angry doodles on Post-Its for the tenth time during your weekly Zoom marathon, bask in the glory of your office plants!
Don't take our word for it though, serious studies have been conducted by Universities to see the impact of interior plantscaping in both home and work life and found:
-According to a study by the University of Technology, Sydney, interior plantscaping can lead to a 37% reduction in tension and anxiety levels.
-A study conducted by the University of Exeter found that employees who worked in an office with plants were 15% more productive than those who worked in a bare workspace.
-The use of plants in healthcare facilities has been found to reduce recovery time for surgical patients by up to 30%, according to a study by Kansas State University.
-Indoor plants can help to reduce sick building syndrome, a condition that causes headaches, nausea, and fatigue. A study by NASA found that plants can reduce indoor air pollutants by up to 87%.
-A survey by the National Gardening Association found that 30% of households in the US grew at least one indoor plant in 2020, indicating that interior plantscaping is becoming increasingly popular.
