National Stress Awareness Month
Here at Belle Fiori, we feel lucky to be surrounded by gorgeous flowers and plants all day long, but we didn’t know just how lucky we were!
April is National Stress Awareness month, the goal is to spread awareness about the causes, detrimental effects on your health and healthy ways to cope with stress. The CDC reports that 110 million people die every year, that’s 7 people every 2 seconds. The average American is becoming increasingly stressed with the top factors reported being finances and work. 32% of people surveyed said they are stressed every day, 1 in 4 of those women report experiencing stress multiple times a day.
In a study done by the University of North Florida, commissioned by The Society of American Florists, “The Impact of Flowers on Perceived Stress Among Women” concluded that adding flowers to your daily environments such as home and work significantly benefited from incorporating flowers into their interior design. Research done at Harvard, Rutgers and Texas A&M support the same conclusion that flowers in the home increase your overall mood, boost creativity and even rejuvenate you!
