Brighten up Your Workspace

One potted plant might be all you need to feel better at work.

Researchers at Texas State University found that people who had a plant in their offices rated themselves as more satisfied with life and work that did those without them.

Bonus: there are also dozens of plants that are great for filtering toxins out of the air thereby improving the air you breathe. Black thumbs fear not: there is a plethora of hard to kill plants available. Try any version of dracaena, golden pothos, a peace lily, or for big impact, try a Boston fern.
