4 Ways Flowers Can Make You Feel Good
From raising your chances of getting a dream date to enhancing your ability to sleep better, flowers seldom fail to impress. And, we are not the only ones saying this, the whole scientific fraternity is acknowledging the fact now
Here’s how a beautiful Bouquet (ช่อดอกไม้, which is the term in Thai) can be truly beneficial for your physical and mental well-being.
- Bring smiles: Flowers are sure to lighten up your day, ensuing a big smile- and, sure we don’t need a medical report to back that up.

Undisturbed sleep is essential for optimal functioning of your body- Studies have even confirmed that the people who manage to catch short naps during the day are found to be healthier and active than those who do not.
- Boosts creativity: An experiment was conducted during the Chelsea flower show- flowering plants were placed on the workstations at different places and the change in the employee behaviours was monitored. Quite surprisingly, the creativity of the workforce recorded a spike of more than 40% within a short period.
Creativity is God’s gift and is often accompanied by a deep sense of gratitude and satisfaction. However, fresh flowers can play a pivotal role in creating an environment where creativity could flourish.
- Enhance focus: We exist in a high-pressure environment where constant stress is the order of the day- no wonder, it is hard to focus.
A mere glance at a beautiful graduation bouquet (ดอกไม้รับปริญญา, term in Thai) lying just next to you on the work desk, instantly brings a sense of calm and relief. All of a sudden, it becomes easier to internalize your senses and bring the focus to the present moment. Your brain gets rejuvenated and is now ready to take the next challenge head-on.
With so many benefits to their credit, it makes so much sense to make flowers a regular feature at your home and offices.
