Rooting for Plant Love
Hello fellow fashionistas,
Today, inspired by my mom, I'm writing about plants, houseplants in particular. These delicate green organisms have some not-so-obvious benefits you may not have thought of. I, having not been blessed with my mother's green thumb, have killed my fair share of cacti and succulents. But with the help of my friend Marlie and my mom, I've been able to keep two plants alive, one of them for about a year! It's been surprisingly quite rewarding and I thought I should share my thoughts on these little green pals.
A Little Bit of Purpose
First of all, taking care of a little plant or two gives you a little extra purpose everyday. While it's a very small task to water your plants each day, it's still something to keep you in a routine. Having little tasks is good for occupying your mind and keeping you busy!
As most people already know, it's been proven that house plants help to naturally purify and clean the air indoors. Not only do plants inhale carbon dioxide and exhale our much needed oxygen, but they also reduce humidity in your home too. Who wouldn't be happy with a little bit cleaner and fresher air to breathe?
Feeling of Success
When your little plant babies do well, you feel a little sense of triumph! While it's not anything as important as a child or pet, it's fulfilling to take care of anything and see it grow and thrive! One of my plants is about to bloom a second flower and I'm embarrassingly excited for it lol. Oh no, I'm becoming a plant nerd, like my mom haha!
Visually, the color green is the color symbolizing nature of course and it's said to give us feelings of safety, freshness, growth, and harmony! With all these great color associations, it's no wonder our green pals make us feel happy when we see them. It's even been proven that house plants help improve concentration and productivity, boosts your mood, and reduces stress levels. They do so much more than just sit there, don't they!?
