At Bice’s Florist, we’re huge advocates of the idea of flowers as self-care. They are as vitally important to your well being, if not more, as getting a massage or treating yourself to a pedicure. Flowers have been proven to improve cognition, memory and mood. For a hospital patient, they do everything from reduce blood pressure to decrease the amount of medication a patient uses. They invite us to pause, embrace the moment and connect to nature.
Consider something like Garden Delights, a literal box of fresh blooms that hits every cheerful, uplifting note and references the garden while it’s at it. We love this for how it anticipates spring, giving us as much color as it does green. It feels fresh and modern, something we could easily add to our desk or our dining room table, where everyone could benefit from the good vibes.
When you give yourself the gift of flowers, you’re going a long way to ensuring that your overall well being will feel uplifted and energized. There are so many reasons to give yourself flowers we can hardly count them all, but we know from personal experience that if you think of them as an important part of your self-care routine, you won’t be sorry.
