19. BUY A PLANT

Fact: A NASA study found that common house plants could improve air quality. In fact, they reported that houseplants were able to remove up to 87 percent of air toxins in 24 hours. The recommendation? Use 15 to 18 “good-sized” house plants in 6- to 8-inch diameter containers for a 1,800 square-foot house.

Plants are a great asset to any home or office. They depict Life and Growth. Green color has a very deep meaning to it. It is the color of nature. It relates to growth, peace, freshness, fertility and safety. Green color has wonderful healing powers. It is the restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Having a plant also increase oxygen content in air giving your more freshness and vitality.

If you already have one or many plants, rearrange them. Change their position. Or add a new plant to your existing collection.
