Why you should have "green friends" in your home

Who doesn't like plants? You've certainly heard that having plants is beneficial. If not, here you can find out why.

Besides being a very easy to maintain "frienship", plants offer beauty and transform spaces into "relax" environments.

Here are some of the health benefits of having plants in your home.

Purify the air

As we know, through the process of photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide from the environment and transform it into oxygen. This, in turn, complements the respiratory process of humans. Thus, our green friends improve the quality of the air we have inside our home.

Can help reduce stress

Modern life often limits us and isolates us from vegetation, which can alter our natural balance. One of the greatest benefits of having plants in your home is that they can help us reduce daily stress, especially if we watch them develop, grow and flower.

Help us breathe better

As part of their nature, plants provide moisture to the environment. This is very beneficial in reducing the levels of dryness and dust particles in our home. In this way, you can help prevent respiratory problems.

Availability of food spices and natural remedies

Even if we have a very small space, it is always possible to find a corner near the window or some place with enough light. We can plant and grow plants that we can use to spice up our meals. For example rosemary, basil or aloe.

Reduce static electricity

Because of their ability to generate moisture in the environment, plants can help reduce static electricity in our homes. By decreasing static, we avoid those annoying effects that occur in an environment where electricity does not flow properly.

Can be beneficial for people with depression

Having pets helps those facing a depressive disorder. Similarly, caring for plants provides purpose, something very useful also for those facing episodes of depression. Watering the plants, fertilizing them and watching them sprout or bloom can be a highly therapeutic process. Of course, it is only an adjunct to treatment and is not a substitute for antidepressants or other medications that may have been prescribed by a psychologist or psychiatrist.
