Four Reasons to Liven your Space with Fresh Flowers

Buying fresh flowers has become a weekly agenda item that I willingly go out of my way to ensure that I achieve. Although there are numerous reasons for enhancing your space with flowers, I’ll leave you with four:

They’re Beautiful

This reason may seem obvious and even overly simplistic, but you’d be amazed at how colorful, fresh cut flowers can transform a dull drab space. Whether at home or in the office, I’m certain that we could all use an extra dose of color in our day.

Improved Mood

Studies have shown that the effects of depression and anxiety may be lessened in the presence of flowers. This makes keeping them around an awesome natural addition to your mental wellness regimen.

Creativity and Concentration

Flowers have been known to boost mental cognition. This can lead to increased problem-solving skills and critical thinking in the workplace. Who doesn’t need a dose of mental stamina to tackle that daunting to-do list?

They May Increase Your Mindfulness

They concept of “being present” tends to escape us in our day-to-day lives. Keeping and caring for flowers can serve as a reminder for us to slow down, and enjoy the act of simply being in the here and now.

The next time you feel the need for a mental wake-up call, or just a gentle push toward tackling the day, consider visiting your local florist. It’s always least expensive to go with flowers that are in-season.
