Imagine, you wake up in the morning, and right in front of your window you see beautiful flowers and plants. Isn’t it refreshing? Not only does it create a lasting impression, thus elevating mood, but research has proven the therapeutic effects of flowers upon our health and well-being.
A study by Jeannette Haviland-Jones Ph.D. of Rutgers, found that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. It suggested that flowers can have a positive effect upon moods, can decrease anxiety, and make spaces more welcoming.
Other studies by numerous famous people proved the positive impact of plants and flowers in reducing office depression to help foster unique and innovative ideas.
I am passionate about the positive impact that plants, flowers, trees and shrubs can have on our daily mood and well-being. While live plants certainly offer a variety of health benefits, there are times when they also can bring negative aspects. Whether it’s pollen and allergens or just the frustration of not having time to maintain a plant, the last thing you want is for your beautiful flowers and plants to have a negative impact on your well-being.
Luckily, artificial trees and plants can have the same positive impact on your health and mental attitude. Whether it’s a beautiful color, a sense of beauty, or just feeling like there is a low-maintenance aspect to your interior decoration, artificial plants, flowers, and arrangements can help bring a lot of positivity to your indoor décor.
According to Talk Space, “[Plant therapy can help people] battling depression, anxiety, addiction, and for survivors of abuse.”
The low-maintenance aspect of faux plants can also help outdoors, as well. Rather than spending your sunny days weeding and pruning, you can use artificial plants in your outdoor landscaping to minimize the time you spend gardening. Just remember that artificial plants are susceptible to UV rays, just like real flowers and plants, so be sure to protect them.
Here are some tips you can use with plants and flowers to help increase your mood:
- Create a plant mood board
- The Jasmine plant helps with anxiety and depression
- Flowers and mood correlate, if you want to experience a vibrant and happy atmosphere, consider adding colorful plants and flowers to your space.
