Why Amazon Filled Its New Office With 40,000 Plants 😯🌳☝🏼
By all accounts, the project took heroic efforts to complete. Did Amazon do all this just to impress architecture buffs and environmental activists, and win a lot of "best offices" press coverage?
Nope, data-obsessed Amazon is just familiar with the boatload of science that shows nature has powerful effects on humans. Spending time in so-called "biophilic" environments helps to offset many of the negative effects of our frenzied, insecure modern world. Studies show that spending even just a little time in nature can:
•Double your attention span
•Decrease negative thoughts and increase happiness
•Reduce physical signs of stress, like elevated heart rate and blood pressure
•Improve productivity, even with only the most minimal exposure to nature.
In short, nature seems to both soothe the human soul and make our brains work better. That feels nice for people, but it's also likely to make those who work in a high-pressure environment like Amazon better at their jobs.

My morning routine ..After coming from run and yoga I sit in my small balcony garden where I talk to my plants ...I touch the soil and leaves and check whether they need water ,fertiliser,more soil or any organic pesticide ..Accordingly I treat each plant as per their requirements..When first time I started keeping plants I was not much aware about how to take care and most of them were dying but I have learnt little bit now, so I am able to keep them happy and alive ... Road construction is going on next to my apartment and so leaves are getting dirty every day and that makes me sad..but it’s for few more months only Happy #thursday ....
Я совершенно искренне полагаю, что в каждом человеке есть нечто достойное восхищения — даже если этот человек нам и не нравится.

We decided to join in the #10YearChallenge fun!
Back in the British times, the general area of our location was known as the Changi Military Base. Today, we’re a casual restaurant surrounded by nature and nostalgia.
Вчера навела шороху в очень красивом шоуруме @sol_concept_store 💚🌿 Вы только посмотрите на это огромное окно 🌞
Сегодня отчаливаю в родные края и вернусь уже только 27 января. Буду гулять по лесу, любоваться Волгой-мамой и обнимать семью 💚💚

Begonia Maculata is (almost) always available at our store! We love this plant for its dots, red backing and flowers. All round stunner!
