It is truly fascinating how looking at some fresh cut blossoms can easily improve your mood.
Studies over the years have shown that flowers easily reduce our day to day stress and improves our mood; adding flowers to our daily routine can reduce anxiety, depression as well as boost our creative side and daily productivity. So in general, yes, flowers can make everyone happy and the perks of it also last much longer than the initial moment of joy.
Here are 5 reasons how to reduce your daily stress with beautiful blossoms:
Waking Up To Flowers
One of the best feelings in the world is when you wake up to sunshine and of course, flowers! When you buy or receive a bouquet of fresh blossoms, place a small arrangement on your bedside table where it can be one of the first things you see when you wake up - almost like a little present for yourself each morning. It can naturally help you feel energized each morning and will definitely get you to roll out of the bed on a day you are not so sure if you are ready to start the day. If you often wake up on the wrong side of the bed, this would definitely do the trick.
Rose Petal Bath
Nothing is more relaxing than a tub filled with warm/hot water and rose petals. Pamper yourself and feel like an absolute goddess while you soak yourself in a rose petal bath. For more of a calming effect, avoid using vibrant colour roses and use light-coloured ones instead. You can also add roses to your daily beauty routine. For example, rosewater toner, body oil, bath bombs or soap.
Drink Them! (Yes, drink them!)
It may come as a surprise to you that there are a lot of flowers that are actually edible. Go ahead and add organic flowers (unsprayed food-grade) roses, lavender, chamomile, herbs etc. to your infused water or even hot tea! Although it makes it very appealing, it is also incredibly delicious too! You can even find flowers in infused syrups made with jasmines and elderflower.
Flowers essential oils are also a great stress reliever. A great way to calm your surroundings is to add a few drops of floral essential oil to a spray bottle (you can also add some petals inside) and spray it around your house/room once in a while for that burst of fragrance that can simply enlighten the vibe of your home. A simple way to bring a field of beautiful flowers to your home without leaving your home! You can even level up your ironing game by spraying it onto your clothes and leave a beautiful scent that naturally makes you smell good every day.
Frame The Flowers You Receive/Bought.
Do not let the flowers you bought/received go to waste! Instead, you can have them pressed into a frame and have them hung up on a wall; accompanied by other photo frames or artwork. As much as it makes your house look lovely and nice, it also reminds you of sweet moments of joy. A nice way to lifting your mood whenever you go about your day at home.
