You've probably heard the phrase “flower power,” but did you know that flowers do have health-boosting powers? Several studies prove that being close to plants and flowers can improve many aspects of our health and well-being. Let's look at a few ways flowers from local florists can improve your health.
Improve Creativity and Productivity
Our busy business culture is all about productivity, but who knew that stopping to smell the flowers could help you be more productive at work? A study conducted by Texas A&M University found that work environments in which fresh flowers and plants were present have significantly better levels of creativity and overall productivity. If your work doesn't provide this boost to the workspace, you can bring your own fresh flowers or plants to add to your desk. Local florists can help you pick the right selection for work.
Improves Mood and Elevates Emotions
It's not unusual to occasionally feel blue or feel like your emotions are down in the dumps. One way to help improve your mood and emotions is to expose yourself to fresh flowers. Research conducted at Rutgers University showed that just the presence of flowers starts to trigger positive emotions and feelings of satisfaction. Just like that feeling you get when someone has flowers delivered to you, you can boost your own mood by purchasing flowers yourself from local florists. In fact, according to the Society of American Florists, 88% of people say floral gifts change their moods for the better.
When others are feeling down, flowers can help improve their mood as well. This is especially true after a loss. Flowers are a way to send comfort to someone you care about if they've lost a loved one, or a job, or are simply feeling down in the dumps.
Improves Energy and Memory
As if all of these wonderful benefits aren't enough, flowers are even proven to improve energy levels and boost your memory. A Harvard behavioral study shows that Americans who don't consider themselves morning people found renewed energy and focus after looking at flowers immediately upon waking up.
