There’s no denying it’s been a difficult year and that we’re all having to work harder than ever on our mental and physical wellbeing as a result of the pandemic. It’s never been more important for us to appreciate the little things, especially when we’re restricted as to who we can see and what we can do. As a professional florist in Sheffield, I’ve seen first hand the positive effects flowers can have on both physical and mental health, and I truly believe that bringing nature into your home promotes wellbeing, lifts your mood, and even reduces stress. So, here are a few ways in which flowers can benefit your health!
Reduce your Stress Levels with Flowers
Everyone knows that flowers enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home. But a recent study carried out by the University of North Florida found that it is now intuitively and scientifically known that adding elements of nature, like flowers, to interiors promotes well-being. Flowers were also found to have a stress-relieving impact, with the women that received them during the study experiencing a significant reduction in stress.
Enjoy Mood Lifting Scents
Smelling fresh flowers and plants has long been associated with a good mood boost. Not only is the scent of flowers a powerful pick me up, flowers have been proven to provide the opportunity for valuable nature contact, which is a well-established health-promoting type of environmental exposure. Smelling floral scents is commonly associated with lifting someone’s mood, as well as making us feel less anxious. A real benefit of working in a Sheffield flower shop, that’s for sure!
Boost your Memory with Flowers
Another study carried out into the effects of flowers on those aged 55 and above found that, incredibly, they had a positive impact on their memories! It is thought that this is linked to fragrance; because smells are so strongly linked to recalling memories, flowers have the potential to activate the parts of your brain that are concerned with recall and memory. Wow!
