Winter weather can certainly precipitate symptoms of cabin fever, the doldrums, the winter blues. Gardeners know that plants can help relieve those feelings. Who doesn't enjoy seeing colorful blooms during the gray days of winter? Scientists agree that houseplants likely improve mood by reducing stress, increasing pain tolerance, and lessening physical discomfort. Why? Possibly because plants simply make a room more lively and appealing. Indoor contact with nature can provide the same natural relaxation we experience outdoors. This phenomenon is called biophilia, a love of nature, and architects have designed buildings around the concept.
Several studies have demonstrated the positive effects of potted plants in offices, schools and hospitals. Specifically, they've been proven to lower systolic blood pressure, improve reaction times, increase attentiveness, improve attendance, create a feeling of well-being, improve perceptions of a space, lower anxiety during recovery from surgery, and increase job satisfaction.
