Don’t you love the warm and fuzzy feelings you get when a loved one surprises you with a bouquet of flowers? Beyond being beautiful and fragrant, flowers deliver a health-promoting array of benefits. The experts at OrganicBouquet.com share five reasons you need fresh flowers in your home or office year-round.
Benefits of fresh flowers
1. Bouquets can boost your mood
Bright, fresh cut flowers instantly improve your mood. People with fresh flowers in their homes are most likely to feel less worried and feel fewer periods of anxiety or depression.
2. Flowers double as inspiring decor
Flowers can easily take the place of boring everyday table décor. Coordinate bouquet colors with your space, or place a bright bouquet on a shabby old table to draw the eye and lend to a fresh new look that makes you feel good about your living space. They also make it easy to decorate for each season.
3. Fresh flowers refresh memories
Smell is one of the most powerful senses and can trigger instant memories. A rose’s robust smell can fill a room with just one flower. Choose familiar bouquets that bring back fond memories of growing up in the country, taking a final bow on stage, or even those used on your wedding day.
4. Flora fosters creativity
Fresh flowers have been shown to stimulate creativity while promoting concentration. Adding flowers and fresh plants to your child’s bedroom or play area will brighten the space as well as their growing imagination, while also encouraging responsibility. Put a vase at your desk because they can also spark your creativity while you’re at work.
5. Bouquets are welcoming
Flowers bring positive emotional feelings to those who enter a room. Place flowers in places visitors see, such as the foyer, living room and dining room. Flowers make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere. And just think, every time you walk into or through your home, they will make you feel welcome and “at home”, too.
