With winter now in full swing, plants to boost your mood have never been more crucial. They also happen to be trending so I’ll show you what I screenshot from Details made with love and you can take it from there.

Adding that little uplift in the days until spring arrives and hope for a world we once knew, the perfect houseplant choice could significantly improve how you feel.

Shorter days and colder weather can be a little tough for people at the best of times. Now with lockdown restrictions in place, it’s more important than ever to look after your mental wellbeing and many people might look to buy themselves a plant or two.

Scientists say, just being around houseplants, flowers, and even artfully arranged branches can significantly boost your mood, reduce stress, improve concentration including ADHD symptoms, and even relieve aches and pains.

While experts have not pinned down exactly why this happens, in a nutshell, they suspect humans are hard-wired to connect with nature and other life-forms for the mutually beneficial feel-good benefits. For instance, taking care of houseplants can increase your happiness. No kidding!
