Habitacion - Seek The Uniq Power Plant Mall

It’s no secret that connecting with nature has a lot of health benefits. Experts have found that greenery works wonders for our physical and mental well-being. Green leafy plants are known to reduce stress levels, filter the air, and help boost our moods, affecting creativity and productivity.

In fact, doctors in Scotland recently came up with a list of Nature Prescriptions. They believe that planting bulbs, flowers, or trees, along with activities like talking to a pony, following a bumblebee, or whale watching helps patients combat chronic illness, including stress and mental health issues.

Fortunately for city folk who have limited access to nature, indoor plants are having their moment.

This Christmas, thank your plant-obsessed friends for keeping this interior and wellness trend alive (or jump on the bandwagon yourself) with something from these shops:
