The color green affects us physically. It’s soothing. It relaxes mentally as well as physically. It helps alleviate depression, nervousness and anxiety. And it offers a sense of renewal, self-control [Editor’s note: except when in a garden center surrounded by plants!], and harmony.
Go ahead. Plant something green! It can be considered relatively cheap therapy and a great value.
