How to be 15% more productive at work
As is well known, plants have infinite benefits. The most important of all is that through photosynthesis they consume carbon dioxide and generate oxygen instead, so having a plant at home helps us breathe cleaner air, that is, rich in oxygen. Some plants are also edible, others are medicinal, and some others are used in the industry sector as a raw material. For example, the supports we manufacture in BOREEN are partially or totally composed of sustainable pine wood. (plant origin).
All these benefits are already known to most. However, something that is really curious and unknown is that the indoor plants we use to decorate our workplace, in addition to being decorative, help us to be much more productive in our work.
Studies carried out in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands by the team of researchers from the School of Psychology at Cardiff University have shown that having plants, such as BOREEN tillandsias, in the office, office or desk increases concentration and productivity by around 15%.
This study that was collected in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, in summary, said that those offices that were green (with natural plants) would unconsciously make workers happier, healthier and more productive.
Generally the air plants BOREEN are of medium size pulling to small, very similar to the cacti that are usually put on the desk tables. In this case, we must understand that the amount of oxygen they are able to generate will be proportional to their size. Therefore, if your intention, when buying a plant, is to have a natural oxygen generator, you should look for a large plant or even several.
The air plants of BOREEN are ideal to put them as desk decoration or next to the computer as living decoration products. If your place of study or work is this, you have probably seen yourself in the situation of que, during your activity, look around for a source of inspiration at a time when ideas do not come alone.
In fact, the psychologist, sociologist and professor Eva Heller demonstrated in her book "The psychology of color" that there is a close relationship between colors and what they cause in our subconscious.
Has it ever gone from being immersed in your work and suddenly going blank without knowing what else to write or do? Have you thought what you are doing at that time?
Most of us literally stay "empanadas" looking at some object that we have around us. What we come to say here is that most likely having a plant of air BOREEN is that at some point you will stare at it looking for a source of inspiration. The reality is that vegetable colors influence us positively.
Let's see what positive aspects each of the colors that our aerial plants have give us. The color green is highly related to nature. That is why it transmits serenity, harmony, tranquility and vitality. Being a neutral color, it is continuously influenced by the colors that accompany it. For example, when a plant VAR turns pink, this pink color attracts so much attention. Green is a color that enhances the state of concentration.
- The color yellow conveys a lot of joy, positivity and optimism.
- Pink and purple colors such as those of our VAR plants, PIX or JUN (fuchsias and reds) are activators, perfect to enhance our productivity.
- Soft colors such as white characterized in air plants by trichomes reduce anxiety and nerves.
For these reasons, many companies opt for decorations with plants. However, an indispensable factor for this type of decoration is that they must be easy to care for plants. And that's where air plants come into play. More and more companies are contacting us to decorate their offices with aerial plants in decorative and modern supports. Some also ask us to customize them with their company logo.
It is important to remember that, apart from positively influencing our productivity, they are very easy to take care of and do not dirty anything. For these reasons there are many students who buy their air plant to decorate their work desk where they have the computer.
From BOREEN we encourage you to test the validity of this study. We know that you deserve to have a plant that makes you happier as well as productive. And if you don't believe the 15%, you can simply do it because they are cool, easy to care for and different from other plants.
