Earlier today, we blogged a study which found that looking out at nature was the best destresser. If you can't look out at nature, why not bring it indoors? One way is by treating yourself to weekly flowers, a key AT philosophy. Another way is by creating a greenhouse in a window...
While a deep set window is the ideal setting, glass or acrylic shelves can be hung across or just underneath any window. Covering a window, they can act as a green curtain
. In newer buildings, where windows may not open, shelves filled with plants can help purify stagnant indoor air. And, a row of potted herbs is a welcome addition to any cook's kitchen decor.
