Happy New Year 2017

The new year is finally upon us, and that means it’s time to talk about resolutions.  I’ve always been a fan of setting goals at the beginning of each year because it provides an excellent opportunity to reflect and focus on self-improvement.

Start living your best life in 2017! In 2017, I’m going to recommit myself to humility, authenticity, in faith in something greater than myself. I cannot do everything on my own. I need my family, friends, and team members to survive and thrive. By staying centered, mindful, and aware of my failings, I’m going to avoid the pitfalls that have stymied me in the past.

This brings me to flowers. Having fresh flower arrangement in my home is not just for the aesthetics, either; fresh flowers improve the quality of your home and your health.

Fresh flowers improve your happiness while decreasing negative energy in the room. Flowers increase compassion and energy. Moreover, fresh flowers decreases effects of depression and anxiety. The benefits of fresh flowers

1. Bouquets can boost your mood

Bright, fresh cut flowers instantly improve your mood. People with fresh flowers in their homes are most likely to feel less worried and feel fewer periods of anxiety or depression.


2. Flowers double as inspiring decor

Flowers can easily take the place of boring everyday table décor. Coordinate bouquet colors with your space, or place a bright bouquet on a shabby old table to draw the eye and lend to a fresh new look that makes you feel good about your living space. They also make it easy to decorate for each season.

3. Fresh flowers refresh memories

Smell is one of the most powerful senses and can trigger instant memories. A rose’s robust smell can fill a room with just one flower. Choose familiar bouquets that bring back fond memories of growing up in the country, taking a final bow on stage, or even those used on your wedding day.

4. Flora fosters creativity

Fresh flowers have been shown to stimulate creativity while promoting concentration. Adding flowers and fresh plants to your child’s bedroom or play area will brighten the space as well as their growing imagination, while also encouraging responsibility. Put a vase at your desk because they can also spark your creativity while you’re at work.

5. Bouquets are welcoming

Flowers bring positive emotional feelings to those who enter a room. Place flowers in places visitors see, such as the foyer, living room and dining room. Flowers make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere. And just think, every time you walk into or through your home, they will make you feel welcome and “at home”, too.
