IGU Promotes Health and Wellness through GREENERY!
Earth day is celebrated each year on April 22nd. We are reminded of how important it is to protect the environment and all that inhabit it. Since COVID-19, many of us have been spending a great deal of time inside and cannot enjoy the benefit of fresh air as much as we would like to. Although we have been practicing personal health by social distancing, it is still important to take care of mental health as well. Did you know that incorporating greenery can increase emotional well-being and promote better air quality?
Indoor plants purify the air, reduce stress, boost immunity, and contribute to improved mental health. Indoor plants also contribute to increased productivity which is great at IGlobal where we put STUDENTS FIRST AND FOREMOST!
