3 Reasons Why Doctors and NASA Love Houseplants (+ Why You Should Too)

3 Reasons Why Doctors and NASA Love Houseplants (+ Why You Should Too)

 

Humans and plants have coexisted since the beginning of time, but only recently have we begun to fully understand all of the benefits that come with living alongside plants.

1. Fresh Air 💨

In a 1987 study NASA found that houseplants are excellent at purifying the air around them, ultimately helping people in their vicinity breathe better, have less stress and live healthier lives.

2. Less Stress 🏝️

Amazingly, houseplants help reduce stress and anxiety through more than just oxygen purification.

In 2015, research published in the Journal of Physiological Anthropology indicated that caring for and being around houseplants was significantly beneficial to mental health and can reduce both physiological and psychological stress.

3. Higher Productivity 🏃

Multiple studies have found that working among plants has the potential to not only increase productivity and speed, but to increase creativity and quality of work.

In a 2004 study, doctors asked people to make creative word associations. The participants who were in close proximity to houseplants performed better than their houseplant-less peers.

And a 2007 study found that people who worked in offices with houseplants were more productive and took fewer sick days.
