Bring in the Houseplants

If you have houseplants and stationed them outside for the warm months, remember to move them back inside before it gets too cold out. If you don't have houseplants, consider making this the time to get some! In addition to being a source of warmth and beauty, plants have been shown to help purify air and reduce stress. As we move through fall and approach the winter months, when we will be spending more and more time indoors with the windows shut, having indoor plants can help keep us connected to nature and keep our air fresh.
