Why Flowers Are Used to Boost Mental Health at Train Stations

by Caitlin Schweppe

Network Rail is adding colourful floral displays to lift people’s spirits during their journeys. Can flowers brighten up a long and difficult commute? Absolutely! Flowers are not only beautiful displays for our home, or to gift our loved ones - they have real mental health benefits. Here is why you should consider adding fresh flower displays to brighten up someone’s commute.

Flowers Encourages Positivity

Remember the wonderful feeling you experience after receiving a beautiful bouquet? Studies show that flowers can make us feel less nervous and agitated - feelings that are often experienced during a difficult commute. Sending flowers to someone before or after their journey can reduce these negative effects (if not remove them altogether). You can add flower bouquets with lavender, purple lisianthus, and white spray carnations to bring some joy to someone’s life.

Nature Reduces Stress

Connecting with nature has many health benefits. Probably the most important benefit is that it reduces the symptoms of depression and anxiety. After all, there is nothing more calming than taking a walk in a beautiful park or garden. You can replicate that feeling of calmness and bring someone closer to nature with a floral display of fresh flowers during their journey.

An Unexpected Gift Shows Your Love

There is more mental health awareness in the world than ever but some people still experience difficulty expressing their feelings during difficult times. A thoughtful gift can mean the world to someone during these difficult periods. Sending an unexpected floral gift can help to brighten someone’s day and let them know how much they are loved.

Bright Flowers Improves Mood

According to science, the brighter the flower, the better! Colour therapy (chromotherapy) is the study of colours in the human brain. It is said that bright colours help to create a peaceful state of mind. Add pretty pink tree fern, yellow roses, pink carnations, or lush purple carnations to brighten up someone’s day.

Flower Arrangement Spark Creativity

There is a creative process used to create stunning flower arrangements. Creating a flower arrangement or even gardening is known to be therapeutic and calming. Gifting a flower arrangement might help you to inspire someone to get their creative juices flowing. They may be inspired to take on a therapeutic activity of their own or display their beautiful floral gifts, all of which help to boost their mood.

Take Someone’s Mind off Their Troubles

Coping with mental health issues can be constant and exhausting at times. Floral displays at stations can help take their minds off their troubles for a moment, but gifting flowers go one step further and create a lasting impact. Flowers may not last a lifetime but the thoughtful gesture (and personalised message) are sure to be treasured forever.
