Most of us spend many hours indoors during our working and off hours, and without knowing it, we may be breathing in air that may not be the best air to breathe.
New construction materials, new carpets, new furniture, and cigarette smoke: these are many ways harmful toxins get into our enclosed spaces.
Thanks to research done by NASA in the 1980's they learned that by bringing houseplants into our living and working spaces we can improve the quality of the air we breathe.
A live plant not only brings the natural world into a given space, which is a calming sight in my opinion, but through the process of photosynthesis transforms carbon, water and light into oxygen. As stated in the links below, some plants also have the ability to remove harmful toxins from the air during this process of photosynthesis.
Now I know many of you may say, "but I don't have a green thumb". Go with the plants that are the hardiest. In my experience philodendrom, pathos, spider plants and snake plants (aka mother-in-law's tongue) require the least amount of care.
Who knows you may discover a new hobby that is healthy, calming and fun.
