Houseplants are one of the most beneficial components of home decor and also an example of a healthy lifestyle. They underlined the splendor of our home with a touch of fresh and lively nature and gave us the feeling of being surrounded by nature.
They improve indoor air quality by purifying the air we breathe. They not only decorate the house beautifully, but they also remove stress, headaches and cardiovascular symptoms in our body.
Indoor plants can reduce many of the harmful components of indoor air pollution, especially some of the harmful organic volatile compounds known as benzene, toluene, and xylene. These compounds are mainly removed by soil microorganisms.
Plants can also remove excess CO2 from the home environment, which is responsible for our work slowdown. Plants also increase humidity and reduce airborne microbes.
Let's take a look at our daily eating habits. When we consume junk every day, our general health slowly deteriorates and we suffer from digestive problems, heart disease, obesity and more. When you breathe in unwanted air, there are downsides in the form of allergies, asthma and bronchitis, as well as more serious diseases that arise in the air, because indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air.
Growing and caring for houseplants at home is a good healthy practice as it gives us a sense of peace, pleasure and calm. Several follow-up studies have shown that some ornamental plants can actually optimize brain performance, boost immunity, improve the quality of our sleep, and much more.
