Flowers to Energize & Relax Your Space

Relaxing Flowers

Chances are you spend more of your time in your workplace than almost anywhere else. It’s true, especially in the United States, people are working more than 40 hours a week these days. So if you spend a lot of time in your workspace, your workspace should be working for you. With one minor change, your workplace could go from stuffy, boring, and sad to a place of peace, motivation, and good vibes! Adding a little life to your workspace is as easy as incorporating energizing or relaxing flowers into the space.

 

Benefits of Houseplants

It’s no secret that adding flowers or plants to a room add lots of beauty, but it’s more than just that. Houseplants and flowers can actually benefit your overall health and well being! Houseplants can help you breath easier, stress less, and focus more. Studies have shown that offices with plants experience a decrease in fatigue, colds, headaches, coughs, sore throats, and flu-like symptoms. Some plants can even remove pollutants like ammonia, benzene, and formaldehyde from the air.

Maybe you’re thinking, okay you’ve sold me! I want more flowers and plants in my workspace! But what should I get? Whether you’re looking for the most fragrant flowers, energizing flowers, or relaxing flowers, there’s bound to be a houseplant or flower that will bring what you need into your workplace.

Flowers that Purify the Air

If you’re looking to clear the air in your office, plants and flowers are the best way to do it. If your office is climate controlled and airtight, any pollutants that are in the air can get trapped there. Plants can help clean the air by pulling the contaminants into the soil and converting them into food for the plant. It’s the next best thing to stepping outside for a breath of fresh air! Some plants or flowers that purify the air are:

  • English ivy
  • Snake plant
  • Spider plant
  • The Red-Edged Dracaena
  • Aloe vera
  • The golden pothos
  • Gerbera Daisies
  • Azaleas
  • The wax begonia

Flowers that Create a Positive Energy

Often times in an office, employees are doing very repetitive work and it’s easy to get unmotivated or stuck in a rut. It happens to the best of us, and finding motivation can seem like an impossible task some days. Sometimes finding positive energy can be hard, but plants can help! Some energizing flowers are:

  • Peace lilies
  • Bamboo plants
  • Orchids
  • Snake plants
  • Sage
  • Jasmine

Flowers that Promote Relaxation

Whether you work a high-stress job or are overwhelmed by constantly being one tap of the phone away from your work emails, it’s all too easy to get stressed out and overwhelmed in the workplace. Maybe you need a flower or houseplant that can remind you to take deep breaths and slow down a little! Some relaxing flowers are:

  • Lavender
  • Chamomile
  • Passion flower
  • Aloe plant 

Flowers that Inspire Creativity

Ask any artist–creativity seems to come and go as it pleases. Creativity may not be something you can bottle up and sell, but it can be improved with flowers. Texas A&M completed a study that concluded that plants and flowers in the workspace increase office creativity. Whether you work full-time as an artist or you just want to inspire creative thinking in your office, some good options are:

  • Marigolds
  • Cypress vines
  • Lotus flower
  • Fire star orchid
  • Philodendron
