Sometimes it’s difficult to stop, look, and appreciate what’s around you. Sometimes what’s around you is a dreary cubicle. Your space will feel so much more alive–and then you’ll feel more alive–if you just add a plant or two.
I recently started keeping fresh flowers in my home. It seems like such a small change, but just two or three stems of flowers make a big difference. I particularly like to place a small vase of flowers near my bed. Seeing the flowers first thing in the morning and last thing at night really helps to calm me.
It’s a relatively cheap quick fix to spruce up your home. (My local grocery store usually offers 3 bunches of flowers for $10.) Plus, according to all the home decor magazines, it’s what all the cool kids are doing. Seriously, have you ever noticed that every room in a home decor magazine has flowers in it? There’s a reason. Not only does it add color and texture, but it makes a mere space feel like a real place.
