Ruth Correll: Plant prescription for winter blues
Psychologists say the weeks following the holidays can be a very depressing time of year, even for the healthiest among us. Keep the ‘blues’ at bay this winter by surrounding yourself with lush and beautiful houseplants. No kidding, indoor plants can really chase the blues away. Not only do they filter the air we breathe, making our interior environments healthier, but they can also improve your mood and productivity. Studies show that just four minutes of viewing plants, indoors or out, reduces blood pressure, respiration rate, and the production of stress hormones and mood improves.
