As we roll into the New Year, we become motivated and inspired to make small changes in our day-to-day living that could have a positive impact on our health, productivity and relationships. At Norfolk Florist, we believe flowers can accomplish all of that. Here's how:
Flowers reduce stress. Surrounding yourself with flowers and the green foliage that often comes with them is a scientifically proven way to create a calmer, more peaceful atmosphere and reduce levels of stress.
Flowers help you focus. Because plants and flowers are natural air purifiers, they remove toxins and impurities from the air we breathe, helping us to have clearer minds and more focused attention to detail. What a great way to work each day.
Flowers help us be more compassionate. When we care for another living thing we find ourselves gaining more compassion and empathy as we become others-focused. Strengthen your relationships by caring for plants or flowers. Read More about Motivated and Inspired By Flowers
