Working from home

Plants reduce stress and anxiety. 

According to studies, active interaction with indoor plants (like touching and smelling) can reduce physiological and psychological stress. What's more, even the potting soil can help you keep a handle on daily stress and anxiety. This is because soil contains microbes dubbed "outdoorphins" which work as natural antidepressants by boosting your mood by releasing cytokines, which then leads your brain to produce more serotonin. They can even help sore throats and colds.

Plants spruce up the air quality.

Plants act as natural humidifier. 

Plants release moisture from their leaves through a process called transpiration. Just place some Boston Ferns around your apartment to regulate dry indoor air during winter. 

 

Plants facilitate healing. 
Plants are more than just pretty home decor—they have healing proprieties, too. Long before you went to the doctor to get a prescription, people used plants to treat illnesses and wounds. In fact, many modern drugs, such as aspirin, are derived from plants, now known as healing plants. Being in close proximity to plants can help you feel calm and heal faster from injuries.
