Whether it's just one hanging plant, a mish-mash of potted greens, or cuttings sprouting from a glass bottle, bringing house plants into your home is scientifically proven to reduce stress levels—plus they're easy on the eyes.

If you hail from brown-thumbed stock, start off with a cluster of succulents in a bright window. Wait until the soil is completely dry before watering them and watch your brown thumb turn light green. I recommend low-maintenance all-stars like the Zee Zee plant or Mother-in-law's Tongue; then work your way up to some serious air-purifiers like English Ivy or a rubber tree.
