Let’s be honest: there are billions of things promoting to help us lead happy and healthy lives but there is one simple thing that we all seem to forget and it’s the greenery. Plants not only boost creativity, bring life to any space but they scientifically make us happy. Work is work and whether you’re a freelancer or work a daily nine-to-five, the grind can start to dull, so we wanted to highlight eight desk plants that not only help your workspace feel great but look great as well; it’s all about the aesthetics, duh. So time to boost your happiness, get ready to have a surge of creativity, and accept that you’ve been chosen by the #plantlife.
Introverts live for introspection by exploring the vibrant landscape of the mind and understand the importance of solitude.
