While houseplants often just sit in the corner of our living rooms without much thought, these interior organisms actually have a variety of health benefits. If you don’t already have a houseplant, your health could benefit from owning one.
First, house plants can help you breathe better. They reduce interior carbon dioxide and airborne dust levels. This can lead to better general breathing as well as help those with asthma or dust allergies. Your interior air quality affects your health just as much as the air quality outside. It is important to maintain your interior air quality as it contributes to healthy breathing patterns.
Since plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen, they make our indoor air environments more conducive to humans. Some plants like succulents, orchids, and snake plants continue this process even at night. Making them the ideal indoor companions.
Beyond the physical health benefits of houseplants, owning house plants is widely known to lower stress levels and improve all around well being. While indoor plants are well known to reduce outside noise, being around plants instinctively makes us feel calmer and more at ease. In stressful workplaces and environments, plants reduce stress levels. And, the people in those environments compared to those in similar environments without plants.
