Indoor plants can work wonders on our well-being and mental health. They brighten a room, smell great, and also play on our emotions.  

According to one study, people who keep plants in their homes feel happier, less stressed, and more relaxed. As a result of the positive energy derived from the environment, the chances of suffering from stress-related depression also lessen. 

Below are three plants to boost your mood. 

Sansevieria

Also known as the “snake plant,” but don’t let that creepy nickname keep you away. Keeping a snake plant in your bedroom or on your office desk will improve the air quality by removing harmful toxins and providing you fresh air to breathe.

This lovely plant is also the perfect indoor plant, as it tolerates various light levels and prefers to be a bit dry. Also, the smell is known to “help ease anxiety.” 

Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums (try saying that five times real fast) are pleasing to the eye. Also, chrysanthemums reduce the activity of specific genes that go into overdrive during stressful situations. That’s why, when taken as a tea, it lessens symptoms of worry and stress.

Lavender

Lavender is my favorite plant and an excellent addition to any home or office. Its sweet smell helps soothe the mind and relieves anxiety and stress. Plus, lavender is a sleep aid as its mesmerizing fragrance and soothing properties provoke slumber.
