Flowers are more than just pretty decorations that you can obtain from florists, and even though 65% of Americans feel special when receiving flowers, they have more functions than acting as a nice gift.
Outside of being beautiful decor, your average bouquet actually has some very real health benefits. Plants have many benefits for a person’s overall health and well-being, so spending time around nature could be immensely helpful.
Here are just a few benefits of having fresh cut flowers in your office or home:
- Emotional Health
Receiving flowers, either from a person or bought for yourself, can give an immediate mood boost. A bouquet is a sign that someone cares for you, and being well-thought-of can do a lot for a person’s will being and self-view. Not only that, but a soothing floral scent in a room can comfort you, especially with flowers that brighten the space.
- Memory and Concentration
Many people have a moment where they forget things or lose their train of thought. Plants can actually help in indoor spaces with concentration and memory. They oxygenate the air, boosting brain cells and revitalizing you. A flower bouquet or a long lasting plant in a pot can be useful in this regard. Something like a Zen Garden or a little bamboo plant can be nice due to only needing water once a week.
- Faster Recovery
There is a reason that flowers are given as gifts to patients in hospitals. It’s not only a nice thing to do, but it may also help a person heal faster. Frequently, hospitals offer access to green space for recovering patients because looking at plants daily helps stressed people feel more relaxed. A relaxed person heals faster than a stressed one, and so giving plants can help speed up recovery.
Those are just some of the health benefits that a nice flower bouquet or potted plant can bring to the table for individuals. Aiding in concentration, memory, and even boosting the healing process of a sick person are all major benefits to be had.
