Filling your home with the color and aroma of flowers can do more than just brighten it up. Flowers and plants have been proven to improve your overall well-being. 

They can reduce stress, improve your sleep, and even boost your mood and energy levels.


Studies have found that stressed individuals felt calmer and more relaxed after having flowers in their home for just a week. Displaying flowers in rooms like your kitchen, bedroom or office have the biggest impact on stress and anxiety levels.

Simply smelling certain floral scents can also help reduce anxiety and calm the mind. Consider placing flowers in rooms you spend the most time in, or places where you start your day.

Keeping flowers near you bed can help improve your sleep. Flowers can help relax the mind and body, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Flowers can increase cognitive function as well. Researchers have found that flowers help your brain tick faster, making for better problem solving and creative thinking.

This is especially true in your workspace. Keeping flowers near your desk can help improve your productivity.

Color Matters

Colors invoke feelings and emotions, so choosing flowers with specific colors can help impact your mood. Use soothing colors like blues, purples, and greens to calm your mind. While bright, vibrant flowers, like yellow and orange can spark energy.
