Beat the Winter Blues
As the days grow shorter and colder, many of us experience the notorious winter blues. However, fresh flowers can be a powerful force to counteract the lull we all feel during winter. Scientific studies have shown that the colours and scents of flowers can boost your mood and alleviate stress. The vibrant hues of blooms like snapdragons, tulips, and roses act as natural mood lifters, infusing your surroundings with warmth and positivity. A study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology revealed that participants experienced increased feelings of happiness and satisfaction when fresh flowers were present in their homes. Take that winter!
Boost Your Well-being
Beyond their aesthetic appeal, fresh flowers have a profound impact on our well-being. Did you know that flowers release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide? By having them in your home, you’re enhancing the air quality, increasing oxygen levels, and creating a healthier environment. This can lead to improved concentration, enhanced productivity, and better sleep, ultimately contributing to a happier and healthier you during the winter months.
Moreover, research conducted by the American Society for Horticulture Science found that flowers have a therapeutic effect on individuals recovering from illness or surgery. The presence of flowers in hospital rooms resulted in lower blood pressure, reduced pain perception, and an overall sense of calm. The flowers you’re sending to your unwell loved one is doing more than just letting them know you care.
By embracing the magic of fresh flowers, you can elevate your home and spirit during the coldest months of the year. A Fig & Bloom subscription is just the thing to help you achieve this. Just choose the size and how frequently you’d like your beautiful bouquet to be delivered and we will do the rest! The beauty of our subscription bouquets is that they are always bespoke and no two deliveries will be the same. The perfect gift for a loved one or a gorgeous way to spruce up your own space!
