Is your office looking a little drab and colorless? One way of making your office a little brighter and a little more alive is to get a few green plants. These plants will look great, and they may even make your office feel a little cooler and more soothing, too.
While we often think of the color blue as the color associated with cooling, soothing things (water, for example), green can actually create these feelings, too. Green plants, especially, can help make our homes and offices seem a little cooler. While they don’t actually do anything to change the temperature, just seeing them helps us believe we’re a bit cooler than we actually are.
Any green plant will do to help create this effect. Ivy is very popular because of the way it hangs over the side of its pot. This is a particularly nice effect if you put it in a hanging pot. Moss Rose, a nice flowering green plant, also looks great. If you want a green plant that is both nice to look at and has a practical use, go with an aloe plant. If you get a burn, just break off one of the plant’s green leaves and smear the inside cream on it—you’ll feel relief in no time.
These are just a few of the cool and soothing green plants you might want to add to your office during the hot summer months. Of course, be sure to keep them well watered—plants hate the heat just as much as we do!
