Feeling Green?....


Feeling stressed or depressed at the office? Studies show that those with living office plants feel better and are often more productive. Don't just buy any plant though. Pick a plant YOU find especially attractive whether you're into exotics or just grass. Take pride in your plant and trim the dead ends when needed. This isn't just for a better office or your well being, but a better breathing environment too :)

Stay positive, friends!

I wonder if this has something to do with the oxygen from the plant? Either way it's a cool idea, bet it gives you something to be proud of when life gets you down!

I've always liked dandelions, I could never understand why my grandma called them weeds. Would be pretty weird though decorating your office with dandelions though, heh.

Mikko said...

I've always felt an attraction to the colour green and nature in general, they say that this is due to a lack of nature in one's life.
