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.
The ability of plants to make us feel good appears instinctive. We surround ourselves with plants during weddings and other celebrations as well as in sorrowful times like funerals. We set aside green spaces for parks and community gardens. Numerous studies have shown that people who grow houseplants are more satisfied with life than those who don't. Plants cause the brain to produce more serotonin which boosts mood. Houseplants improve concentration, memory, reaction time, and creativity. Experimental studies have shown that cognitive performance improves in offices with plants and that merely seeing the plants boosts creativity.
