The Amazing Health Benefits Of Bonsai Trees
When we talk about bonsai gardening, creating bonsai trees and caring for our collections, we tend to talk about the beauty and serenity of it all.
While that’s definitely true, there are some other benefits that need to be mentioned.
Actual concrete health benefits of having bonsai trees in your life.
Yes, health benefits. You see, these little trees that we love are more than just pleasing to the eye. They are capable of making us physically healthier, and mentally happier.
If you’re keeping bonsai trees indoors, which you should only do when appropriate (like over the winter,) you have effectively taken in a temporary houseplant. Studies have shown that houseplants can be terrific little air filters and purifiers.
They can help purify the very air you and your family breath, cutting down the severity of colds and allergies.
Having a hobby like bonsai gardening is also a well proven way to reduce your stress. Stress, as it turns out, is bad for you. It can drastically shorten your life, and lower the overall quality of it. Seriously: Who wants to be stressed out all the time?
It turns out that lowering your stress is a good thing, and bonsai trees are great at doing just that.
Bonsai trees are also miniaturized nature. They can be an entire forest landscape sitting on a table, yet you can experience it with relative ease. Recent studies have shown that having a connection with nature can lower your blood pressure, improve your mood and give you a ton of other practical benefits.
With all of these benefits, it’s hard not to love bonsai trees even more.
Science is saying a bonsai hobby can reduce your stress, lower your blood pressure, make you happier and make the very air you breathe cleaner…
