When you are presenting a bouquet, you are wish for happiness. Flowers have held great significance since ancient times. Kings had flowers as their seal and had flowers were presented at the important occasions. However, in the present times, flowers hold a much larger significance, and we will tell you how.
Scientists have found in various researches that these beautiful blooms have positive effects on human brains. Did you have a bad day at the office? Did you have a fight with your spouse? Well, to be honest, flowers can’t resolve your personal issues, but they can definitely calm your mind and the other person you had a tiff with. Flowers have the ability to uplift you spirits, eliminate stress and help people to recover faster with their brilliant colours and fragrance. Let us see how.
The sheer sight of these beautiful blooms spreads contagious smiles. The brain of the person receiving the gift produces endorphin, the ‘happy hormones.’ This smile is associated with positive emotions and related changes in the brain.
Researches show that those who received flowers have a better memory and lower levels of stress. Some offices keep bouquet and plants in the workplace as it prompts minds help them keep calm and more productive. Surprisingly, they help them in concentration by reliving angst and negative thoughts and depression and encourage compassion.
Have you seen bouquets and floral arrangements in hospitals in patients’ rooms? Well, the simple reason behind this is that they speed recovery. The presence of flowers reduces stress among the patients and even a peek a garden from their room windows accelerate healing. Interestingly, some hospitals encourage patients to practice horticultural as a therapy, where patients are made to take care of plants and this has shown positive results on them.
Flowers have magical powers to stimulate good mood through their bright colours. Each colour evokes a different emotion in the brain. Warm shades of yellow and subtle pink induce a sense of nurturing. Mauve and shades of purples bring about comfort and nostalgia. Hot reds and orange symbolise passion.
The scent in the blooms is brain stimulants too. For instance, waft in roses secretes phenylethylamine, a chemical which has a certain amount of amino acid that slows the breakdown of beta endorphins hormones. There are some flower scents, such as jasmine, or water lily, that help you sleep better and relax.
Another interesting way of how these flowers affect the human brain is their distinct symbolism. In the ancient tomes, flowers were symbols of life, love, fertility, and good health. They were considered omens of spring and renewal of life after harsh winters. A bouquet or a floral décor piece indicates goodwill and happiness.
Did you know that these harmless little blooms possess such great power and work wonders on our brain? We are often used to presenting bouquets on weddings, or birthdays, to that special someone or to a sick friend, but now you would know exactly why you are doing so. So, what are you waiting for? The new year is around the corner and you have all the reasons to spread smiles.
