It is universally known that flowers are beautiful and can brighten up a room, but did you know that they also have a massive impact on your mood, attitude and general happiness?
Smiles All Round
When you are given flowers as a gift or as a sentimental gesture, you are almost always guaranteed to smile. Smiling releases feel-good endorphins which not only make us happier, but also has other benefits like boosting your immune system and lowering your heart rate.
Good Night’s Sleep
Getting a good night’s sleep is paramount to leading a longer, healthier life. Fresh flowers can help achieve a good quality and duration of sleep as some scents in particular have great relaxing and stress relieving properties. Lavender is the main fragrance that can help you relax by lowering your heart rate and blood pressure.
Less Stress and Anxiety
Following on from the previous point, flowers can make an impact during the day as well as at night. Although not a long-term solution, flowers such as lavender and rose can help ease your stress and anxiety, and sweeter scents can improve your social behaviour, encouraging you to interact and help others.
Boost Your Health
There will be some fragrances that are able to evoke certain kinds of emotions within us individually, and sometimes healing qualities too. They are by no means the cure to a healthy lifestyle, but they definitely have the power to give you a boost and a surge of motivation when considering our well-being.
Whether you’re at work or at home, it is always good to have flowers surrounding you; they have the power to increase brain performance and stimulate your mind so you become more attentive and productive. The colours can have a significant impact too, for example, red boosts concentration and blue inspires creativity.
