To get a truly gorgeous night's sleep, you need a relaxing bedroom to unwind in first — and houseplants are experts in relaxation. There's plenty of science behind the calming properties of plants and their ability to activate serotonin, a neurotransmitter sometimes referred to as the "happy chemical." And keeping a few plants in your line of vision is proven to enhance your mood and ease your stress, so placing a couple on your dresser, nightstand, or windowsill can really soothe you before bedtime.
Not to mention, they can remove toxins from the air in your bedroom and increase humidity. Less harmful chemicals and more oxygen means you'll breathe easier overnight. Plus, when the air is too dry, it can cause sore throats, colds, and skin breakouts, so that extra humidity from your plants will nip any of those potential problems in the bud (get it?). Plants might not be able to boost the quantity of your sleep, but they can certainly boost the quality.
