Our hectic and fast-paced lives are far too often controlled by work, meetings, errands, texting, phone calls, and social media. It can lead to intense feelings of disconnectedness, negativity, and overall unhappiness. In order to relieve stress and find our inner peace, it’s important to make positive, healthy changes in our lifestyle. One of the easiest ways to improve our emotional and mental health is by reconnecting to nature. It’s no surprise that flowers, nature’s perfect gift, are often used to brighten so many homes.
The presence of flowers has an immediate positive impact on our health. They trigger happy emotions and make us feel less anxious, depressed, and agitated. It’s been proven that flowers increase life satisfaction, promote creativity, make us feel more energetic, and improve memory. They also have a positive impact on our social interactions by creating a more welcoming atmosphere. This is why flower arrangements are often displayed in rooms where friends and family gather. Flowers are often described as a symbol of “sharing.”
