Bring the natural world inside.
One small way to let good grow wild? Actually grow something. Keeping plants in your workspace (and your living space) is a simple way to reconnect to the wider natural world. That’s because by bringing a living piece of nature into your space, you can cultivate feelings of biophilia, a design practice rooted in the way we’re all emotionally connected to nature. Reminding ourselves of that connection—even with something as simple as a potted fern—comes with serious benefits:
At work, indoor plants can increase feelings of wellbeing by 88%.
A UK study says plants and natural light can boost creative thinking by 15%.
Even just staring at photos of fields or forests can help reduce stress. Seriously.
