Indoor Plants are so good for you

Indoor Plants are so good for you

With the rise in high density living and more of us living in smaller spaces, we are interacting less with nature and life outdoors

Although this doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, this small change has been proving more and more unhelpful to the health and well-being of the human body. What is helping to counter this trend is awareness and knowledge about the benefits of indoor plants and that is why Simple Succers says if you can’t get out, then bring the outdoor in.

Nature nurture

One great benefit of having indoor plants is that they are proven to reduce stress. For starters, indoor plants give their owner something to think about as well as something to nurture - from remembering to water them, to pruning them, and even talking to them. They are a perfect choice for kids if pets are not allowed in the house as they give children something to care for, learn about growth and nature.

Better than cut flowers

If you are looking for a perfect present for someone in your life, give a plant. They are way more sustainable than cut flowers, even if your friend does not have a green thumb. (Which of course may require more visits from you in order to keep said plant alive.)

Air filters

Indoor plants help filter air and put more oxygen into the surrounding area. You might be shocked to know that the air inside of our homes and offices is often more polluted than the outside air. This is due to off-gassing (which is when synthetic materials or chemicals naturally degrade, releasing harmful particles into the air). This comes from items like furniture, carpet, flooring and paint.

Health benefits

The mental and emotional health benefits that indoor plants have either at home or the workplace are endless. The emotional benefits of having something natural sitting in the waiting room or your home office bring people back to nature and give the feeling of being in a less stressful setting.

Common plants that are easy to keep alive

One of most common indoor plants are succulents because they are the easiest to keep alive! We’ve all been there and killed a plant or two! Succulents require less water and maintenance than many other indoor plants. Zanzibar Gem and Aloe Vera are other common indoor plants, which are almost impossible to kill. Another super common type of indoor plant is herbs. There are many therapeutic and physical benefits of herbs along with being able to use them daily while cooking. Of course, because they are raised by you, you know they are not covered in pesticides.
