Adding some Nature to Your Home or Office

If you are stuck at home for a good deal of the day, or have a home office, it might give you an emotional boost to add a touch of nature to help connect you to the outside world. There are a few especially helpful ways to do that so take a look at this list.

Flowering plants can add a burst of color and brightness to your space. Try a dramatic sky blue hydrangea, a classy pink cyclamen or a sunshine colored kalancho or potted gerbera. Green plants can give off oxygen and help keep your room fresh. For an easy to grow plant, choose dieffenbachia, a peace lily plant or elephant ear plant. Living plants need to be placed near direct or indirect sunlight, depending on the plant.

The meditative quality of watching fish as they glide through the water can have a very relaxing effect and help release tension and stress. Their colorful tanks can also add a pop of cheerful color to your space. Check into renting something like the cabinet aquarium Denver residents are loving. Whether you prefer tropical fish or the more common varieties, consider adding a touch of life to your space.

If you have a good window you are luckier than most. When you just have a small window, you may find mirrors helpful as they can reflect the natural sunlight throughout the room. You may also want to consider a sunlight lamp – the type that people with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) have. Those lamps are especially helpful for those who have an office space without windows or one located in a basement.

You may choose to use one or all of these methods to breathe new life into your space. Whether your office is located in your home or a skyscraper, the effect can be beneficial to both your mood and your state of mind.
