Ok adults, what’s our motto?
Well, we don’t have one (yet) but if we had one, it would be…something, something, yeah, yeah, increase happiness and decrease stress. Woo!
(Can you tell I was never on the cheerleading squad? Or any kind of squad?).
Well guess what? Houseplants are an adulting-er’s best friend. Because studies show they increase happiness and decrease stress. And some other awesome stuff too like help with concentration, improve productivity and remove toxins from the air.
Bottom line is, houseplants are awesome.
Oh wait. Except if you’re anything like me, YOU KILL THEM. And that is the worst kind of stress of all. Is there, honestly, anything more depressing than throwing out another plant that you failed to care for even though you really tried, you really really tried?
So how did I overcome my black thumb and start filling my home with stress relieving plants?
