Why You Need Plants In Your Home Workspace

Sorcha Kennedy

I think it’s safe to say that majority of us are spending a lot more time in our home workspaces recently, whether you’re working remotely or doing online school/college. It’s super important to keep this space as calming and stress-free as possible.

The most well-known ways to do this is to keep the room as clutter-free and tidy as possible, and by using calming, neutral colours. But, what you may not know is that plants are actually the key to a peaceful environment with good vibes only.

I’ve only recently created my own little plant family in front of my desk, and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my mood!

Here’s why you should add plants in your home workspace…

Having Plants Boosts Your Mood

A study done by researchers in Australia found that introducing plants into your workspace reduces stress, fatigue, and feelings of sadness/depression. They’re also proven to increase productivity (so they are definitely a must-have if you’re lacking the motivation to get your work done).

They are known to boost your mood during rainy days and they also purify the air in your room (which can actually prevent illness). In my opinion, they give a room a bit of life and completely change the mood of the space. I’ve definitely found myself feeling better since I’ve added them to the windowsill in front of my desk.

Which Plants To Choose?

There are all sorts of plants that you can choose from, depending on how much you want to commit to taking care of them and how much light your room gets.

Plants like the Areca Palm and the Rubber Plant are good for rooms that don’t get much light, and the Heart Leaf Philodendron and the Snake Plant are better for rooms with lots of light.

My personal favourite, the Peace Lily, needs a lot of watering (which means it’s more of a commitment) whereas the Spider Plant only needs occasional watering.

Cute Planters Are Also A Must

You can also get super cute planters that will definitely give you the push to get some plants. Here are some of my favourites:
