Panama City, Fla. — Recent studies indicate that individuals who frequently find themselves in low spirits could benefit from the addition of plant life to their immediate surroundings. Heroman Services Plant Company, a provider of retail landscaping in Panama City, FL, is dedicated to keeping their residents informed, and they are discussing the mood-boosting effects of indoor plants.

According to the biophilia hypothesis, which was popularized in 1984 by biologist, naturalist and writer E.O. Wilson, humans have an innate connection with plants and other living creatures. The more than three decades of study since then have verified the theory and shown that natural surroundings can significantly boost positive emotions while reducing negative ones.

A recent article in The Washington Post posits that “our connection to plants is so strong that sometimes it takes only a few minutes of being in their presence to start feeling better. Studies have found that less than 20 minutes is enough to make us feel more at peace. In one experiment, participants who spent even five to 10 minutes in a room with a few houseplants felt happier and more satisfied than those in a room without plants."

Plants can provide feelings of release if you are trapped in an office, small home or other enclosed space for lengthy periods of time. In a study done during the pandemic by the National Library of Medicine, individuals who had indoor plants had fewer symptoms of depression and anxiety than those who did not. Additionally, the study concluded that houseplants induced a feeling of "being away" from social or physical duties. As an award-winning indoor landscaping company, Heroman Services Plant Company has seen the benefits of adding plants in the workplace and private homes firsthand.
