1. Relieves Stress
Studies on the affects of plants in the work environment have shown that plants help reduce stress and tension. You don’t need a lot of plants to help you de-stress in your workspace. Just one healthy plant will suffice to provide you with a calmer environment.
2. Improves Air Quality
Not only do houseplants produce oxygen, they also help clean pollution out of the air. In other words, houseplants help make you healthier.
3. Inspires Creativity
Plants, like paintings, create a mood that can increase your creativity and influence your writing. Choose a hanging plant for a more romantic setting or a group of cacti if you prefer a more rugged setting. Ivy has a sense of mystery to it. Choose your plants carefully and create a personal indoor environment.
4. Increases Productivity
Studies have shown that people who work in offices that have plants are 12 percent more productive than people who have no plants in their office.
5. Adds Comfort
Above all else, houseplants make an area more comfortable. Comfort is a necessary feature to every writer’s work area because of the amount of time we spend working at our desk. Add as many plants as you can care for, then sit back, relax, and start typing.
