‘Monday’, a start of a week and all people know after a weekend we need a motivation. A motivation to start again, a motivation to stay fresh, and a motivation to remain productive throughout the week.
We live in 21 st century and many people are aware of their physical and mental health too. Our health is directly and indirectly linked with nature especially the plants. They play a vital role as the plants provide food, medicine, shelter, calmness, and oxygen.
What they exactly do?
1. Plants Make You Happier
When we surround ourselves with the natural beauty of flowers, it is proven that our stress levels decrease, we feel more light-hearted and our thoughts are more hopeful and optimistic. Flora (plants) is good for the eye and the soul. Not only the aesthetic beauty they display, but their vibrancy of colors and very much, their fragrance, can induce a state of intense happiness and self-confidence.
2. Boosts Memory & Concentration
There is no doubt that having plants about to feed, water, trim or even just enjoy, exercises the brain, and improves memory with an increase in concentration capacity. Flower scents have long been known to trigger pleasant memories and induce an overall sense of well being. This gives new meaning to the old term, flower strength!
3. Improves Mental Health
Planting, caring or just being in a natural environment has proven to have a positive effect on people’s mental health. Those people who spend more time outdoors where there are trees, shrubs, flowering plants and sunshine, have a more positive outlook on life and are less prone to depression and sullen moods. In offices, indoor plants can help to do the same.
4. Reduces Stress
It’s a fact that people who do gardening, indoors or outdoors tend to be less stressed as the nurturing aspect of caring for plants has a calming effect. It is rewarding on many levels including the release of those good feeling endorphins that are emitted when we satisfied with our work.
5. Improves productivity
Having plants and shrubs as well as flowers and even small trees at the workplace contribute to a great environment for the workers resulting in increased production. Healthy and happy surroundings help people to work tension free and indirectly productivity improves.
