I bought some plants the other day and re-potted them in their own colorful pots. There was a spider plant that had long delicate stems, two tiny cactus-like plants and a twisted bamboo plant. I wanted to see if I could plant things and didn’t realize it was November and kind of a little out of season to be gardening.
Nevertheless I bought these lovely creatures and they sit still in my windowsill, soaking up the little sunlight they can.
THINGS PLANTS DO FOR YOU:
- Plants convert CO2 into O2 for us, humans, and we in return convert O2 into CO2 for them.
- They brighten a room, thus lightening your mood. Most have bright colors and graceful lines which aligns your brain and sooths it.
- They smell good, even if they aren’t flowers their naturally cool dirt-y odor is breathable and relaxing.
- They help with depression. If you are stressed being around a plant helps you breathe and takes you to a natural, calm place.
Buy some plants, go outside, eat your veggies. All things I am trying to do to get myself out of this dreadful winter funk.
