Soothing effects of flowers have a healing touch on patients. Patients exposed to flowers and plants have a significantly shorter post-procedure recovery time.
Flowers make intimate connections. They increase feelings of compassion and kindness that help in relationship-building with others. As such, being in touch with flowers increases one’s social skills.
Flowers can have a revitalising effect on one. Exposure to flowers increases vigor, raises energy level and hence a boost in enthusiasm. The result is a more positive outlook on life.
