The answers are well documented.
“Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong effects on our emotional well being. Flowers and plants bring about positive emotional feelings in those who enter a room. They make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere.”
Dr. Haviland-Jones, Dept. of Psychology, Rutgers University
The aesthetic benefits for the indoor use of flowers and plants are obvious. They enhance the interior design, which by definition, concerns itself with the interior spaces of buildings, emphasizing the physical, psychological, and social needs of people at work and leisure. But all too often the psychological benefits are overlooked, or simply forgotten. There are many studies that document the presence of flowers and plants in the office environment reduces stress, raises job satisfaction, and improves employee morale, as well as increases creativity and productivity. It makes sense to take advantage of these benefits in the workplace.
Other studies show indoor plants and flowers create a more favorable retail experience; decrease depression and boost feelings of well-being in Seniors; and improve student performance in the classroom. And surprisingly, in both males and females, produce positive emotional responses and promote personal interactions.
