A green office can improve your health!

According to a study done by academics from four universities in Australia, the UK and the Netherlands work environments devoid of plants and other decorative items create "the most toxic space" you can put a human into.
Dr. Chris Knight and his fellow psychologists have studied this issue for over 14 years and concluded that workers perform much better when plants are added to workplaces. Memory retention is also improved. Knight explains, "If you are working in an environment where there's something to get you psychologically engaged you are happier and work better."
Forbes magazine reported on a study performed by Harvard. It was discovered that people who work in green office get a 26% boost in cognition, 30% fewer sickness related absences and an increase in their sleep quality.
Taking care of yourself at home and in the work environment is so important for your over-all well being. We spend as much time (if not more) at work as we do at home and taking these small steps can not only reduce tension and anxiety, but depression, hostility and fatigue as well.
What a wonderful way to add a decorative pick-me-up to your office space!
