The New Year is a great time to focus on making small changes in our lives that will have a positive impact. We all seek to have health, happiness and stronger relationships as we move into the New Year. The floral experts at Ron and Alicia Robinson Florist suggest using flowers to accomplish these things. Here’s why:
Flowers reduce stress. Surrounding yourself with anything green, especially living plants, is known to lower stress and anxiety levels. Place leafy green plants and flowers anywhere in your hectic work environment for a calmer, more peaceful day.
Flowers boost creativity. Studies show that bright colors lead to more creative thought. Place your favorite flowers in your favorite hues wherever you do your best thinking. You’ll find your mind open to new possibilities and yourself thinking outside the box quickly.
Flowers strengthen relationships. Not only is sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers a wonderful way to build strong relationships, but taking care of another living thing has been known to develop feelings of compassion and empathy in a person. Strengthen the relationships around you by building these traits in yourself as you care for flowers and plants in your home. Read More about Healthy, Happy New You »
