Plants In The Workplace
I found the article Kill workplace stress with plants! to be not all that surprising, but it really isn’t something that we think of on a normal basis. Could plants help reduce stress, reduce sick time taken, increase productivity, and produce other positive health reactions? According to the study presented in this article, the answer is a resounding YES! I vote for filling our offices with live plants that aid in lowering blood pressure, increasing reaction time, increasing work production, and decreasing levels of stress.
Does your office have plants (even home offices)? If so, do you think it increases your health and reduces your stress?
