MindfloralFlowers for Mindfulness
We spend our lives rushing around, and rarely do we take time to stop and breathe. Mindfulness is the term used to describe the art of being in the present moment, the ‘now’. There are a number of conscious things you can do to practice mindfulness; meditation is the most common.
There are of course a number of other methods to reduce stress and experience a deeper level of tranquillity that is often absent from our daily routine. These include yoga, flower-arranging, nutrition and gardening, to name a few.
It’s no secret that plants have numerous health benefits and these are well-documented when it comes to the ones we eat. But did you know, just by having plants in your home, they can help improve your health? Certain indoor plants help to improve the air quality, as well as helping your blood pressure and heart rate. Plants also help to reduce stress and the act of tending to plants can be a perfect way to practice mindfulness. Having beautiful cut flowers around the house can also aid your mood. Choose calming blue and purple hues, known for soothing the mind; you could even add some Eucalyptus to stimulate the immune system.
Whether it’s for you or your loved one, send a little good health and be more Mindfloral.
