Don’t worry, be happy.  It’s a motto we should all try to live by.  Matter of fact, there is even a song written about it…or maybe the song was written and now it’s a motto?  Either way, it’s still a good one.

We think one way to do this is to use houseplants in your home and office space.  The environmental and health benefits are widely known, plus they just look really cool!

Of course there are some who think they can’t keep a houseplant alive…anyone else ever killed a cactus?  It happens, but that’s the fun of it, you just keep trying.  To help you out, we’ve come up with a list of our favorite houseplants that are easy to grow, require little to no maintenance, and are great for those with busy schedules:
