Are Moss Walls Healthy?

Preserved moss walls have a positive effect on cognitive function, stress levels, and emotional well-being. Exposure to plants and natural elements-- whether living or preserved-- has been shown to lower physiological stress and improve our mental health.

We’ve always known that getting outdoors is good for us, but the modern American spends a staggering 8 hours in front of a computer each day. This reduced contact with the natural world is the norm for most people. However, research shows that nature-inspired stimuli can confer similar mental health benefits.

Health Benefits of Feeling Connected to Nature

The cognitive and emotional benefits of Quiet Earth preserved moss walls can be attributed to the concept of biophilia-- our intrinsic drive to seek a connection with living things and nature.  Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that the human brain functions better when exposed to natural environments. Contact with nature or elements that mimic the shapes, textures, and appearance of nature-- sharpen cognition, improve concentration levels, and boost creativity and imagination.

A beautiful, preserved moss mosaic can perk up a tired brain and confer a type of serenity that goes beyond happiness or contentment. In office environments with dedicated green spaces, workers report high levels of well­being and job satisfaction. The presence of nature reduces stress, which means people are better equipped to focus, problem-solve, and engage emotionally with any task at hand.
