Your Home deserves a spring too…
Slowly, ever so slowly, the sunlight is staying a tad bit longer. The air is warming up ever so slightly. Quietly and peacefully, flowers are peaking their heads out of the ground, trees are starting to bud, and birds are starting to sing.
It feels good.
Spring is here and with it comes all the magic and serenity that comes with it.
Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, and with that in mind, it is also time for you to
Reintroduce Life And Light Into Your Home.
Two of the most effective ways to bring a sense of wellness and stability in your home is through the introduction of lights and plants. Studies have backed up what we all know in our soul to be true:
The more light and life we surround ourselves with, the more benefits we reap.
The light (or lack thereof) if your home can greatly impact your mental health. Maximizing on natural light with delicate, light, and airy window dressing can amplify any mood.
While natural lighting is often preferred for its mood-boosting properties, it can be in shorter demand depending on weather, time of day and your room orientation relative to the sun.
You can use a light fixture and bulb that can mimic the benefits of natural lighting.
Plants Can Help Fight Illness
We have all fallen victim to the Summer Cold, an illness that has fought its way into your life well after sniffle-season has passed.
Introducing houseplants into your spring decorations can improve your health by boosting humidity, fending off dry throats, inflamed sinuses, or irritated skin.

Bright Light, Bright Mind
Creating a space that is rich in bright light, whether natural sunlight or LED lighting, can help promote both individual focus as well as overall cognitive health.
Repeatedly, studies have shown that the hormones that are released in response to both natural light as well as LED lights can help improve focus, creativity, and overall cognitive ability.
Interestingly enough, fluorescent lights do not promote hormonal release in the same way that natural lighting and LEDs can, so understand all bright light is not equal.
Potted Plants Purify
We were taught it from an early age: Plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. What you might not realize is that while it is converting the CO2, it is also filtering the air that is it releasing, according to a NASA study, up to 87% of toxins in the air can be removed by houseplants.
As you breathe easier and with a higher quality of air, your mental and physical wellbeing can be improved. Take advantage of the time of year and focus on your own rebirth, both for your health and your home.
By adding some simple houseplants and being intentional with your home lighting, you can drastically improve nearly all aspects of your daily life.
