If you and your boo went to the Christmas Tree Farm to pick out your tree and sawed it down together, well, you might be feeling better than those of us who took the artificial tree out of the closet. Experts say having a REAL Christmas tree offers tons of mental health benefits like an ease in depression and anxiety. It's the smell of the Douglas Fir, and people tend to be more compassionate to living things that require care.
The best benefit is to those that actually go out in nature and pick out their tree. Experts say it's the being outdoors and the comraderie of choosing a tree with others that's good for our mental health abilities.
So, moral of the story, next year, when the debate in your home comes up about fake vs. real, well, if you're team real, throw these facts out there!
