First launched in 1992, Stress Awareness Month has taken place every April since, as health care professionals and health promotion experts aim to increase public awareness about stress. One may think that stress is not a serious issue; that it is not necessary to have a month dedicated to bringing awareness to it. However, stress does not merely afflict your mind; it can also affect you on a cellular level, with long-term stress possibly leading to a wide range of illnesses—from headaches to stomach disorders to depression. That is why so much effort is made to raise awareness about stress, because anyone and everyone is and has been affected by this serious yet common issue.
So whether you are feeling stressed over work, school, or family, know that you are not alone at all. At MinxNY, we may not be able to cure your stress, but we can certainly help reduce it!
Often times, living in an urban area means working and commuting in a concrete jungle with a regimented schedule. Often times, your life with be completely devoid of nature and greenery. You may wonder, why is this important to Stress Awareness Month? Well simply put, countless studies have shown that human beings are less stressed when they are in close proximity to a plant; by keeping flowers and plants around the home and in the workplace, a person’s stress levels are greatly reduced. In honor of Stress Awareness Month, your general wellbeing, and your mental health overall, why not treat yourself and your life to a beautiful houseplant?
For both plant enthusiasts and beginners alike, we recommend our gorgeous 66” tall, delicately-leafed artificial palm tree which comes wrapped in a cozy, rustic burlap kit.

That is why our office is lovingly decorated with tall stunning floor plants and bright pops of greenery all over, and we hope that our plants will be as soothing and relaxing to you as they are to us.
