Concentration and Memory. Being around plants helps people concentrate better in the home and workplace. Studies show that tasks performed while under the calming influence of nature are performed better and with greater accuracy, yielding a higher quality result. Moreover, being outside in a natural environment can improve memory performance and attention span by twenty percent.

Other advantages are:

Today, I saw the opportunity to own my first terrarium. My mother and my sister have an affinity for planting gardens. On the other hand I am not the gifted, but I decided to try it in my own way. The popular rise of terrariums are unique because they’re rather low maintenance and instantly give life to your personal space. They are also intriguingly great for creative space since you can decorate them to your liking.

It may seem a little childish but I decided to add Hello Kitty. I thought it would be great to add life and something to remind me to be free like a child at times. (and the fact I’m not ashamed I still like HK.) I am a beginner at planting and terrariums in general so I chose an air plant. I realized it just made sense to finally buy a plant. As in Day 15, Sakura named me 咲希 (Click here to read), she hoped that my future would continue to blossom.
