Science Says to Reduce Stress at Work, Get a Plant
Is work stressing you out? Science says you should get some type of plant to mellow you out.
I found info about this on Eureka Alert. It's based on a study called "Potential of a Small Indoor Plant on the Desk for Reducing Office Workers' Stress". The scientific folks measured the heart rates before and after they put a plant where they could see it in their work space.
The story mentions that this doesn't need to be a solution for just individual workers. They recommend that business owners consider putting more plants in work areas to improve overall employee happiness.
