As the New Year approaches, we begin to think about how we can improve our lives, seeking out healthier practices to make us happier. The floral experts at Conklyn's Florist ask you to consider flowers as a healthy new addition to your new year. Here's why:
Flowers reduce stress. Gazing at the color green has been a proven stress-reliever. So, placing a beautiful floral bouquet full of lush greens near you as you work could truly create a more peaceful, serene environment.
Flowers freshen the air. Plants and flowers are natural air purifiers, absorbing toxins that can cause headaches, colds, and congestion. Include flowers in your environment and breathe easier than ever.
Flowers bring creativity. Studies show that being near your favorite colors is a simple way to improve creative thought. Surround yourself with flowers of every hue to find yourself expanding your mind and thinking outside the box. Read More about Happy New You With Flowers & Plants
