Now that the New Year is approaching, we begin to think about how we can improve our lives in small ways that make a difference. The floral experts at Griffin's Floral Design have some great reasons why you should include flowers as you refresh your new year.
Flowers boost creativity. Being surrounded by colors you love is a proven way to increase your creative thought. Place flowers in your favorite hues near you whenever you need some extra creative energy.
Flowers lower stress. Their green stems, leafy green accents, and the bright green foliage that complements most floral arrangements is proven to reduce stress and anxiety. So having flowers and plants on your desk or in your office while you work could truly be the calming element you've been searching for.
Flowers clean the air. Plants and flowers are known air filters, absorbing harmful toxins and impurities found in our air and in turn producing clean, life-giving oxygen for healthier air. Find yourself more productive, focused and healthy when you work near beautiful plants and flowers. Read More about Refresh Your New Year »
