Panama City, Florida. — Recent studies indicate that people who often find themselves in a bad mood could benefit from adding plants to their immediate environment. Heroman Services Plant Company, a retail landscaping provider in Panama City, FL, is dedicated to keeping its residents informed, and they discuss the mood-boosting effects of indoor plants.
According to the biophilia hypothesis, popularized in 1984 by biologist, naturalist and writer EO Wilson, humans have an innate connection to plants and other living things. The more than three decades of studies since then have verified the theory and shown that the natural environment can significantly boost positive emotions while reducing negative ones.
A recent Washington Post article posits that “our connection to plants is so strong that it sometimes only takes a few minutes in their presence to begin to feel better. Studies have shown that less than 20 minutes is enough to feel more at peace. In one experiment, participants who spent even five to 10 minutes in a room with a few indoor plants felt happier and more satisfied than those in a room without plants.
Plants can provide a sense of release if you’re stuck in an office, small house, or other enclosed space for long periods of time. In a study done during the pandemic by the National Library of Medicine, people who had houseplants had fewer symptoms of depression and anxiety than those who didn’t. Additionally, the study concluded that houseplants induced feelings of “being away” from social or physical tasks.
