Bring the Outside In for a Clear and Refreshing Environment

Bring the outside in with houseplants, indoor gardens, and lighting to keep those plants green. I’ve gleaned through the internet to bring you these examples in the hope that they will inspire you to bring your outside in and give you ideas on how to do it yourself.

De-stress Your Day Surrounded by Gorgeous Plants

Surround Me with Freshness!

To keep balance in my life, I need to be surrounded by fresh air and greenery. Only then am I truly comfortable and relaxed. That might mean sitting my desk in front of a window so that I can keep it cracked open just a bit to get the right amount of fresh breeze.

This also means that I get a front row seat view of the tops of the trees outside my second-story apartment. This is the way I stay connected with Mother Earth and bring the outside in even if I sit for many long hours in front of the computer.

Lovely Tip to Bring the Outside In:

Leave a trail of plants and flowers that flow from your balcony into your apartment that can be separated by sliding glass doors and vertical blinds during inclement weather. Otherwise, leave the door open and pull the blinds across for breezy, garden feeling throughout your home.

Stress Reducer • Promotes Wellness

Houseplants purify the air around us. NASA studies show that houseplants remove harmful indoor pollutants such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, ammonia, pollen, mold, and more. These types of pollutants are known to cause headaches, allergies, and fatigue. This, of course, serves to reduce stress.

So, it only makes sense that when you add indoor plants to your living environment, it will purify your air and thereby lead to better health for you and your family.
