As we roll into 2019, we often begin the New Year by making small changes that will have a positive impact on our life, health and happiness. At Norton's Florist, we believe that adding flowers to your daily life will do just that. Here’s why:
Flowers boost creativity. Flowers, particularly their bright colorful blooms, are known to help you open your mind to new possibilities. Place flowers wherever you work and find yourself thinking outside of the box more often.
Flowers help reduce stress. Studies show that looking at the color green, especially plant life, will help lower levels of stress and anxiety. Include flowers on your office desk for a calm, soothing effect on your daily work.
Flowers can help strengthen your relationships. Taking care of another living being has been shown to help you become more compassionate, empathetic and others-focused. Let these traits carry over into all of your relationships by caring for flowers on a daily basis. Read More about Healthy and Happy In The New Year
