Being around nature can boost your wellbeing in small but powerful ways. There are unconscious benefits to surrounding yourself with plants, like boosting your productivity, creativity and efficiency. If you actively engage with your plants through dusting their foliage, repotting them or simply monitoring their growth, you'll start to develop a mutually supportive relationship. And this is where you'll get the biggest benefits for your mental wellbeing.
As caring for your plants becomes habitual, you start to experience positive feelings such as compassion, self-mastery and autonomy more. Your greenery will remind you that you're part of a larger ecosystem which will increase your compassion. Eventually, this compassion will extend to yourself and the people in your life. Once you see how your care helps your green wonders flourish and grow, you're sure to get a sense of fulfilment.
And (good news for plant fanatics) the more diverse your plant collection, the better! We respond positively to the density and diversity of plant life. These factors were vital for our ancestors when they tried to determine where they should settle. Our ferns and our Plant Subscription can help you create the diverse, lush oasis we're all longing for.
