Keeping fresh flowers on your desk is a simple, but powerful mood booster. Flowers reduces feelings of anxiety and depression, lower our stress level and blood pressure, and bring us positive energy. Flowers and plants also bring the “outside inside”. We know we can’t do our jobs outdoors but bringing nature to your desk is the perfect compromise. You have a connection to nature, and a more positive approach to your tasks. You can’t argue that!
Did you know they also increase creative thinking, problem solving, and even your memory? If flowers stimulate your mind and senses, it makes sense that they also improve your cognition and mental performance. Pretty amazing! Maybe pick up some fresh tulips or daffodils for the weekend. My bouquet is working overtime.
