Add a Plant to your Desk, Feel Better

Did anyone else read the great little article in Sunday's LA Times about the Perks of Office Plants? Turns out they're not just pretty to look at, they actually impact wellbeing. A study has found that workers with at least 1 plant in their office or cubicle rated themselves as happier in their work and more satisfied with life in general than those without a plant. And what surprised us even more was

that they were happier even than workers who have a window to look out of. So having green foliage impacts us humans more than sunlight or a view. Impressive. So I'm taking a couple of moments today to make sure my houseplants are in order (since that's where my office is). And I'm going to doublecheck that my plants are helping and not hurting the air around me. In the meantime, here are some of ATLA's houseplants:

If you seriously have bad luck with plants, try an Air Plant, it literally lives off air, you pretty much can't kill it.

My own little succulent garden that doesn't die easily, just have to remember to give it some sunlight every two weeks or so.
