2. Bring the Outdoors inside
Once nice weather hits, we want to be outside as much as we can. Unfortunately, obligations at home and work keep us cooped up more than we want to be. Instead, hit up the garden center for plants or flowers that can thrive inside. 'Adding plants and flowers works wonders for your well-being,' says Deborah Serani, PsyD, award-winning author of Living with Depression and a psychology professor at Adelphi University. 'Studies show that having greenery in your life reduces stress, reduces depressed mood, improves attention and concentration, reduces high blood pressure and creates an atmosphere of beauty.' Plants can help reoxygenate your house and make it easier to breathe, and flowers add scents that can boost your mood. So if you can't get to nature, bring nature to you!
