Beloved Flower Lover,
Flower arranging is increasing in popularity for a couple of reasons, images on social media especially on Instagram and the COVID-19 pandemic and we are here for it. According to RHS director of science Alistair Griffiths – ‘Being surrounded by nature is physically beneficial; it lowers blood pressure and heart rate, among other things.’
We love the way that more people are taking the time to enjoy the mindful element, too. ‘It’s called the theory of flow,’ Griffiths says. ‘You become so engaged in an activity – such as harvesting and arranging cut flowers – that you enter into an almost meditative state. It distracts from everyday life and allows you to reboot and restore yourself.’ A recent survey by the RHS found that 71 per cent of people say nature has helped their mental health during lockdown.
Dr Rick Hanson shows you how neurosciene confirms the RHS findings.Dr. Rick Hanson, neuro-psychologist, brain expert, and the best-selling author of “Hardwiring Happiness”, “Just One Thing”, “The Buddha’s Brain”, “Resilient”, and his latest incredibly peaceful and enlightening book, “Neurodharma” points to how you can weed out the issues in your heart and cultivate the gardens in our heart.
We are here for that.
