Offices can be sterile and cold or cheery and comfortable, depending on how you decorate. One of the best ways to improve your workspace is to add greenery. But don't just go buy any old cactus or fern. Take a look at the 5 best plants to keep in your office.

Peppermint
Feeling a little fried? Peppermint plants help stimulate the brain, increase alertness and enhance memory, according to a study in the International Journal of Neuroscience. Bonus: you can pick the leaves and add them to ice water, salads and tea. 

English Ivy
This charming plant absorbs pollutants commonly created by computers and office machinery, which sometimes cause headaches and nausea.

Lemon Balm
Need a pick-me-up? Researchers right around the corner at Ohio State University discovered that the smell of lemon lifts moods. 

Golden Pothos
This green, low-maintenance vine helps reduce indoor ozone. And its bright and shiny leaves make it a great cubicle companion. 

Gardenia
This blooming plant can last up to 25 years, and Rutgers research shows that smelling the flowers improves your emotional outlook. 

Arecca Palm
This busy little office helper filters airborne particles and freshens things up. But make room for it. Its fronds can reach up to 6 feet in length!
