5 Reasons Why Writers Should Keep Plants at Their Desks

More and more studies are proving the benefits of having plants in the workspace. From health issues to mental security, houseplants are proving to be an invaluable tool for writers.

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.
