3 Ways to Bring Nature into Your Home

It’s widely known that nature has a calming effect on the body. Being in a natural environment (or simply looking at a picture of one) can reduce stress, anger, and anxiety. It helps reduce blood pressure, muscle tension, and elevated heart rate.

1. Create an herb wall.


2. Hang glass ornaments stuffed with moss.
