How Flowers Can Revive The Mundane

How Flowers Can Revive The Mundane

Life at times feels stagnant and suddenly unexciting. Overwhelmed by the demands of life, your world begins to appear gray. Everyday you’re moving through the motions, your environment doesn’t seem to help, on the contrary it reflects this sentiment. From your visually unexciting workplace to the place that you call your “home”. A place in which we seek relaxation, peace and rest at times just becomes nothing more than places to eat, sleep, and work. 


However, what if something as simple as adding flowers could transform these mundane surroundings into vibrant, uplifting environments? Science and experience tell us that incorporating flowers into our living spaces can profoundly impact our mood and mental health. A Rutgers study on flowers showed that Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods. Specifically, study participants reported feeling less depressed and anxious. 


This addition can be as simple as waking up to the sight of fresh, colorful blooms on your nightstand. Flowers have an inherent ability to uplift our spirits with their beauty and colors. Exposure to flowers can trigger positive emotions, reduce feelings of anxiety, and increase overall happiness. 


The power of flowers extends beyond their aesthetic appeal. Integrating these self care practices into our daily surroundings can be a simple yet profound way to combat feelings of stagnation and monotony. By brightening our workplaces and homes, flowers inject life and color into our environments, offering a daily reminder of nature’s resilience and beauty. The presence of flowers can elevate our mood, alleviate stress, and foster a sense of well-being. So, next time you find yourself in a rut, consider the humble flower. Whether it’s a single bloom on your desk or a vibrant bouquet in your living room, this small change could make a big difference in transforming your gray days into ones filled with color and joy. Embrace the floral remedy and watch your surroundings—and your spirit—come to life.
