Science has proven that surrounding ourselves with plants and flowers is beneficial to our emotional wellness.
October is Emotional Wellness Month and we think that ties in perfectly with the ancestral traditions that have shaped our human bio-rhythms.
For our ancestors, tending to the fields for survival meant a lot of hard work to sustain through the winter. Thankfully, we are not as reliant on personal crops for survival these days, but we still take care to ensure our wellness through the cold winters, especially here in the Northeast.
Although times have changed, as fall begins, we still prepare our grounds and homes for our protection and comfort.
Traditionally, autumn was better known as harvest season, a time to reap the hard-earned benefits of the growing season. It still is to some degree…
When summer ends, we come inside, make our spaces comfortable and warm, and prepare to give thanks and celebrate abundance with holiday celebrations. We don’t think of it this way, but it is a routine for emotional wellness.
October is the perfect time to mindfully practice self-care, by bringing in the benefits of plants and flowers to ready our nest, and make it the most comfortable and pleasant for ourselves and our family.
Here’s a few things we know about the power of flowers and the magic of plants for emotional wellness:
We’ve always know life is better with flowers and plants, but don’t take our word for it. Check out what the good people at thatflowerfeeling.org have to say about it…
My Pro Tip:
As humans, we have an innate instinct to connect with nature, it’s called biophilia, and it’s a whole thing! It’s how we know Life Is Better With Flowers & Plants. As the cold weather moves in, we invite you to come wander the greenhouses here at Studley’s. Experiencing the warmth, the smell of the earth, the scent of flowers lingering in the air, amongst all the lush greenery is good therapy. Taking home a little something extra is just another practice in self-care.
Not local? You can browse our greenhouse online to find all our plants in the Houseplants Collection, for nationwide shipping.
All of us at Studley’s wishing you wellness in mind, body and soul this month and always.
See you at Studley’s!
