What is biophilia?
It’s about the innate connection between humans and nature. Biophilia research explores the restorative healing and sense of wellbeing that results from our interaction with the natural world. If we are far from nature, then a mere introduction of plants to our indoor spaces, coupled with some other tricks of the trade, can make a real difference(1).
When biophilic principles are applied to our spaces, there is a cascade of stimulating benefits for our daily life. Which of these benefits do you experience when working closer to nature?
- Reduced stress
- Increased focus and concentration
- Heightened creativity
- Increased productivity
- A positive impact on our your mood and general wellbeing
