When full-time hustling is your jam and big cities are your playground, nature and plant time can be hard to come by. And whilst your concrete jungle ways may be good for your business and your bank account, spending most of your life indoors can have some pretty serious impacts on your health and cognitive function (we can’t have that now can we). Plus, if you are a pale skinned Aussie like me then the sunburn life is REAL. And honestly, no matter how hard I try, the tomato faced look is a hard one to pull off.
So, if you are like me you spend most of your time indoors, then adding in some plants to your indoor space can give you some nature inspiration when you need it. Plus, plants are known for clearing air pollution and giving out oxygen which can make you feel amazing and help those brain gears keep on firing throughout the day. Trust me, NASA did a study on it.
Here are some of our faves for both inspiration and health benefits.
Aloe vera is also known as the ‘plant of immortality’ and for good reason too. An epic all-rounder, aloe vera not only cleans the air but also the gel can be used for sunburn if you decide to get your nature fix outside.
