Benefits of Flower Courses

The Power of Flowers in Relieving Stress

We’re diving head first into some fascinating scientific finds, to begin with, about the

power of flowers in relieving stress…

Rutgers University conducted a study on the effects of flowers on our mental

hygiene in 2005.  It encompassed all ages and genders, and it was found that

the power of flowers in relieving stress specifically improve emotional health

by triggering feelings of happiness, joy, positive feelings, and social comfort.

study conducted by Dr. Nancy Etcoff at Harvard found that people feel less

stressed, their relaxation was heighten, they had more energy and

compassionate towards others when they spend time in a floral environment.

Flower Arranging for Mindfulness.

There is a myriad of different activities that you can do to help reduce anxiety,

stress, or depression. Things like yoga, gratitude journaling, breathing

techniques and even gardening.

This last one however, Gardening, has an enormous health benefit in boasting

our mood. There is something really grounding about having a deep and real

connection with nature. Having time away from modern distractions to

appreciate the natural world in all its glory, from simple dew drops on a

summer garden rose to perhaps picking a few choice blooms or greenery to

enjoy inside your home.

Taking time flower arranging for mindfulness in your own home is a great way

to increase your positivity, optimism, and relaxation by indulging in the power

of flowers.

Flowers such as Mint, Rosemary, Lavender, or Chamomile have wonderful

therapeutic fragrances that are brilliant mood lifters. Whereas the scent of

Jasmine can help with relaxation and calmness and aromatic Roses can help

with memory recall and boast creativity.

Even being mindful about the colours you choose to arrange with lifting your

spirits and mood.

How to boast mindfulness with Flowers.
