(More) Psychological benefits of plants in the home

Jan 6, 2024 | Currently, Psychology, Science

In a previous article (“Benefits of having plants at home”), we talked about the benefits of keeping plants at home, focusing on the “physical” benefits of air purification.

However, there are other proven benefits, even more striking if possible. After all, the study of “indoor botany” is a surprisingly deep field of scientific study, and as research progresses, we have a greater understanding of how these plants actively interact with the environment and its inhabitants.

This plant-human interaction, according to recent research [Lee, 2015], leads to a reduction in stress and other beneficial psychological effects. According to research, the presence of plants indoors has anti-anxiety properties. This phenomenon translates into a decrease in stress levels, which can be especially relevant in work or study environments.

Furthermore, at home, the activity of caring for plants and observing their development becomes a therapeutic and rewarding exercise for the inhabitants of the home, which promotes a sense of fulfillment and emotional well-being.

So, the incorporation of indoor plants contained in your Semper Vivens urn improves our quality of life, in addition to reminding us of the importance of maintaining a connection with nature, even within our four walls.
