How Plants Can Help You Make Better Business Decisions

If you’re the owner of a business, chances are you’re always looking for an edge that will help boost your own performance or productivity. 

One way to do this is with the strategic addition of plants to your workspace, which can provide a range of physical and psychological benefits that will help you be the best company owner you can be.

Sounds far-fetched? Let us explain why it really isn’t…

Improve Air Quality

As well as posing various health risks for you and your office workers, poor air quality can also impact cognitive function, affecting concentration, memory and decision-making abilities.

Furthermore, over time, pollutants such as volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde and airborne particles can accumulate indoors, which can all lead to respiratory issues, headaches and fatigue, as well as irritating the eyes, nose and throat.

Thankfully, indoor plants are able to purify the air by absorbing harmful pollutants and cO2, before releasing oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. 

Through a process known as phytoremediation, plants can remove a wide range of toxins from the air, including benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene, effectively improving indoor air quality and creating a healthier workspace.

This also prevents poor-quality air from affecting your cognitive functions, helping you secure deals and make savvy decisions.

Psychological Benefits

Running a business can be a stressful exercise, and if you’re not careful, it can quickly start to take a toll on your mental health. This is why it’s important to do all you can to protect your mental health wherever possible.

Plants are one way you can do this as studies have shown that simply having them in the workplace can reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue, as well as enhancing mood and overall well-being. 

Moreover, the presence of greenery has been linked to increased creativity, productivity and even job satisfaction among employees, so as well as boosting your own happiness, plants will also benefit your staff too.

So those are the two main ways adding plants to your office space can help you make better decisions. As well as cleaning the air by removing pollutants, plants can provide a range of psychological benefits that will help you in the running of your business.
