Fight Anxiety With Flowers It’s Beauty And Relaxation Powers!

Flowers relax the brain with their colors and beauty (vision), their essence (smell), and their texture (touch).

Constant stimuli to the brain can create havoc on our central nervous system, and thus on our way of living.

Learning to relax is primordial, and flowers, herbs, and plants can play an essential role in taking the stress away from your life.

1. Jasmine improves sleep and anxiety

Jasmine is a shrub found outdoors, but with proper care and the right location, you can grow it indoors. Its fragrance is not only sweet to our senses, but it’s also proven to promote a better night’s sleep

If you surround yourself with jasmine, it’s likely you’ll feel less anxious and more at peace, which results in waking up more alert.

Sleep plays a vital role in our physical and mental well-being. If you lack sleep, you may have trouble making decisions, controlling your emotions, solving problems, and coping with change.

2. Gerbera daisy helps to remove toxins from the air

It removes benzene from the air – a chemical associated with inks. Add one to your office, laundry room, or bedroom to promote a calming ambiance and fight anxiety.

Mist the leaves a few times a week. When this flower blooms, its colorful petals can last up to two weeks. The pretty hue not only adds energy to our homes but having brightly colored plants in the house and office also helps to promote happiness.

3. ROSES — Take a rose bath

Facebook Post Wonders In My Yard

The #reel is in Spanish. I talk about how wonderful nature is. One seed of a sunflower gave me this beautiful multiple sunflowers plant. The bees enjoy it so much, the hummingbirds, myself. Pollination in my urban farm has been fantastic this year thanks to the sunflowers and other bee pollination plants I acquired for this growing season.

Wonders in My Garden My Sunflower and A Poem

I’m so happy I got my first sunflower so early in the year. I know, it’s only one now. It is probably a seed from last year’s sowing. I will be planting more seeds very soon 🤗

Ah Sunflower

by: William Blake (1757-1827)

Ah, Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveler’s journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!

Spring Brings Butterflies And Flowers

Today is the second day of Spring 2022, but many places in the world still show majestic blankets of snow.  And that is because the traditional start of spring is governed primarily by hours of daylight, not the weather. And the traditional start of spring is, essentially, Groundhog Day, even back in history before that furry prognosticator’s tradition was coined.

Although it is hard to feel like spring has begun in some sub-zero temperatures places, the length of day drives a change in weather, and together both drive plants to come out of dormancy.

In southern California From January 1 to January 31 the sun rose a little earlier each day, rising about 8 minutes earlier at the end of the month than at the beginning. From February 1 to February 28, the sun rose about 37 minutes earlier. In March, from the start of the month to the end, the sun will rise an extra 40 minutes earlier.

March 20, the Mid-Spring Equinox, marks the point at which the lengthening days have finally caught up with the waning darkness, and daylight and nighttime are of equal length.

The daffodil (narcissus bublocodum) is the traditional flower of hope and spring as it drives up through the snow in response to the lengthening days of February and March.
