WASHINGTON D.C .: Stress-reduction at the workplace is a pressing issue in today’s times. Though the complete avoidance of the condition is inevitable, a recent study conducted in relation to thestresslevels of employees in a workplace suggests that the placement of smallplantsnear theworkdesk can reduce some degree of the stress levels.
The study from the University of Hyogo in Awaji explains how a small plant situated within easy viewing can reduce stress in office workers.
The researchers of the study, Masahiro Toyoda, Yuko Yokota, Marni Barnes, and Midori Kaneko explored the practical use of indoor plants to boost mental health among employees typically the ones who are removed from exposure to healthy green environments.
It is a well-known fact that plant life often brings mental peace but this study scientifically verifies the degree of psychological and physiological impact induced by indoor plants. The researchers took it to the real office settings and calculated stress reduction on employees.
