A Guide to Your Well Being with Linda

Linda - our New England immigrant - knows how to create an oasis in the midst of life's storms.

Her column is updated every weekday or thereabouts, so check back often for new secrets and tips.

Plants For Fresh Air

Most green house plants will clean up a variety of pollutants in your home or office.

Spider plants and heartleaf philodendron are good at removing formaldehyde from your air (from carpeting, fiberboard, plywood, resins, and natural gas).

Also effective at this are azaleas, mother-in-law's tongue, poinsettias, and ficus.

English ivy, marginata, and golden pothos combat benzene (found in tobacco smoke, synthetic fibers, plastics, and detergents).

Peace lilies and dragon trees can clear up TCE (from paints, varnishes, and wood finishes).

So surround yourself with these plants and others for healthier air where you live.

Do you have Well Being ideas or secrets to share or have a question?

You can Write to Linda!.

Include your first initial and last name and put the words WELL BEING in the subject.

I'll try to use your contribution in a future column.

(Please note that these columns are written several weeks in advance so publishing it will be delayed accordingly.)

Linda, Red and Pup

Here's to a beautiful, peaceful time in your life.
