They act as the best anti-stress remedy
Plants, their color, their shape, the delicacy of their flowers, even the sound that the leaves make when the wind blows, help us a lot to disconnect . By doing so, we begin to feel much better, more lively and relaxed, which allows us to enjoy life more.
They clean the air we breathe
We tend to take it for granted that there will always be oxygen available for us to breathe, but the truth is that without plants, no animal (or even human) would be here. They expel oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide . In addition, in summer they cool the environment and in winter they produce heat .
help us focus
Both at work and in studies. By reducing stress, our performance and efficiency increases ; so if we have any plants nearby, the level of production will be higher than what we could have if we didn’t have any.
They improve self-esteem
Having a healthy plant requires a series of care that must be provided on a daily basis. Seeing that it is growing and developing correctly is very satisfying , which undoubtedly increases self-esteem.
They favor teamwork
If you have no idea what to do on a weekend with your family, you can always ask them to work with you in the garden . There is too much to do! Watering, planting, transplanting, pruning,… Maintaining a garden is easier -and fun, by the way- when you take care of it together.
keep nails strong
This is a “side effect” of working calcareous soil. I didn’t expect it, really, but yes. The calcareous earth, having calcium, helps the nails grow strong and with amazing speed : it has happened to me that they have grown 0.5cm in fifteen-twenty days.
makes you want to learn more
You usually buy the first plants you buy because you like them a lot, but as the months go by what usually happens to all of us may happen to you, and that is that you want to learn more about them: their names, specific care, pests that they can affect them,… This will help you keep boredom away, encouraged and eager to learn .
