Balance: Green Your Office

Go Green by Creating a Peaceful Office Environment


Create a more tranquil environment with plants. There are many low maintenance plants that need minimal care and are known to add oxygen to the air. Try considering: jade, ivy, ficus, cactus, chinese evergreen, palm, orchid or a bonsai.

  1. Add a fish tank in your office.
  2. Place a fountain of running water for a more serene environment.
  3. Dried flowers can add color in an arrangement and can last a year or more.
  4. Soft music adds a calming effect.

These are a few ideas. Any other ways to create a peaceful office?
