Many things can help you sleep better and smarter. From hanging blackout curtains to painting your walls blue to ditching electronics before bedtime, you can achieve a more restful night of sleep. But did you know that certain plants can also encourage tranquility and sleep? Not only do live plants clear the air, they usually require little care. Place a plant in your bedroom to sleep better.
Important Considerations When Choosing a Bedroom Plant
- Check for toxicity. Do not leave toxic plants where children or pets may get to them.
- Mix and match your plants for the best results.
- Use plants in rooms other than the bedroom. Space plants throughout your home to purify the indoor air.
- Clean your plants from time to time. Dust on leaves hinders the effects plants have on sleep. Make sure you wipe the leaves down once a week for maximum benefits.
While any plant in your home can help clean the air, bedroom plants should be specifically chosen for their calming effects. When it comes to choosing plants for the bedroom, some help to promote sleep better than others.
