PLANTS & FLOWERS :
Most people enjoy plants & flowers in any way, shape, or form they can get them. Aside from being pretty, plants have many benefits for a person’s overall health and well-being.
Emotional Health Improvement: Reduces Stress & Create a Feeling of Well-Being :
Plants & flowers help reduce stress and create a feeling of well-being.
Most of us know instinctively that being close to greenery makes us feel more at ease with our surroundings. We experience less stress when there are plants around us. Buildings are quieter and more relaxed but, at the same time, more stimulating and interesting.
People in offices are more productive, take fewer sick days, make fewer mistakes, and they are happier when there are plants or flowers around them.
Patients in hospitals benefit greatly from being more in touch with nature. There is even evidence showing students perform better in improved learning environments.
Aid in Memory and Concentration: Improves Air Quality :
There is general agreement amongst scientists that plants improve the indoor environment and are useful in fighting the modern phenomenon of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). No specific cause of SBS has been identified but poor air quality, excessive background noise and inadequate control of light and humidity are all thought to be important factors.
Because plants have large surface areas and exchange gases and water with their surroundings, plants can help tackle some of these issues.
Particular benefits of interior plants include:
Reducing carbon dioxide levels
Reducing levels of certain pollutants, such as benzene and nitrogen dioxide
Reducing airborne dust levels
Keeping air temperatures down
Many people have a moment where they completely lose their train of thought. Keeping plants in indoor spaces may help with concentration and memory; plants oxygenate the air, boosting your brain cells and making you feel more like your best self.
Aid in Relaxation: Lowers Background Noise :
There is a reason so many stressed-out people turn to gardening to combat the blues; not only is the experience of growing things cathartic, but floral scents can do a lot to lower stress. Bring home a sachet of something soothing like lavender or chamomile and feel your troubles melt away. Even a fresh sprig of rosemary may help with headaches and tension. Before you know it, you will find yourself feeling like your best self.
Plants have long been used to reduce noise from busy roads. More recently, research has shown another benefit: interior plants can help to reduce background noise levels inside buildings, too.
Our own studies indicate that plants and their leaves absorb, diffract or reflect background noise, thereby making the environment more comfortable for the occupants. Plants absorb sound best in acoustically live spaces, such as those that feature hard surfaces.
