By afternoon, indoor air pollution reaches its peak. And according to Johns Hopkins, those chemicals increase brain inflammation – which produces feelings of anxiety. But if you have a plant on your desk, it’ll absorb the pollutants and pump out oxygen, leaving you feeling calmer.
One of the best plants you can get is a spider plant. It’s hard to kill – and within 24 hours, it’ll soak up 87% of airborne pollutants and carbon dioxide in the immediate area. It’ll also eliminate dangerous volatile organic compounds from the air – like benzene, ozone and formaldehyde – that are emitted by plastic, fabric, printers and cleaning solvents.
