Sunlight gives your home a warm and welcoming feel, and it creates an aura of coziness in winters. Open up your windows during the daytime and let the sunshine in your home. Modern homes are generally compact, and people do not have separate space to dedicate to make a home garden. Still, you can bring some plant pots to your home, and it will not only purify the air, but it will also help in soothing the nerves of residents.
