How to incorporate nature into your living and work space

NEW YORK, NY, February 14, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Biophilia directly translates to “love of life”, but through deeper exploration of the concept we learn that it expresses the human need to connect with other living beings. In correlation to that is biophilic design which is a design principle that aims to incorporate nature into our living spaces. This could be as simple as adding potted plants in an office all the way to a structure being built around the natural surroundings of where its located. At John Mini Distinctive Landscapes, we’re major proponents of biophilic design and incorporating nature into as many aspects of our lives as possible.

Having plants around your living or working environment has a host of positive effects. Green, leafy plants tend to absorb toxins and impurities from the air, leaving your environment healthier and easier to breathe in. Vegetation also tends to lift spirits. By incorporating bits of nature into your living or working space helps to create a space where you can feel good and accomplish more.

“The principles of biophilic design are to put people more in touch with nature through the spaces they interact with daily,” said Keith Behringer, JMDL business development manager. “At John Mini, we’ve all benefited from the positive effects of biophilic design, and we want to share those effects with our wonderful clients.”
