How Flowers Reduce Depression?

When someone says flower, the first thing that pops up in our mind is bright colours and life. Flowers have their own language. Every flower carries its own special meaning or symbolism, according to its colour and appearance. The meaning or symbolism can include love, commitment, joy, hope, empathy, healing, loss, and good luck. 

Besides adding beauty to our home, garden, wedding or special events, these flowers can also act as stress busters and remove depression. Studies have shown people who keep flowers in their home feel happier, less stressed, and more relaxed. As a result of the positive energy they derive from the environment, the chances of suffering from stress-related depression are decreased as well. Overall, adding flowers to your home or work environment reduces your perceived stress levels and makes you feel more relaxed, secure, and happy.

There are a number of flowers that can help in overcoming depression. These flowers can be called the flowers of joy. These include:

  • Sunflowers

  • Daffodils

Being the first sign of spring, daffodils represent new beginnings and good fortune. The eye-catching colours of the flower can fill anyone’s soul with love and positivity.

There’s a beautiful poem written by William Wordsworth which perfectly describes the beauty and importance of these flowers.

“I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the milky way,

They stretched in never-ending line

Along the margin of a bay:

Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they

Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:

A poet could not but be gay,

In such a jocund company:

I gazed – and gazed – but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought…”

  • Roses

Everyone knows roses as a symbolism of love, but the flowers also symbolize joy and happiness. A bouquet of colourful roses can put a wide smile on anyone’s face.

  • Hyacinth

The pink blooms of the hyacinth symbolize playfulness and can be a great stress-buster.

  • Tulips

The yellow tulips reflect cheerfulness and sunshine. These yellow tulips can lift up your mood with cheerful thoughts.

The list doesn’t end here. There are a wide variety of flowers in the world that can help anyone lower their depression. Some studies have even shown that participation in gardening and landscaping activities is an effective way to reduce levels of stress. People who nurture plants and gardens have less mental distress than others. Gardening provides people with a positive way to channel their stress and frustration into something beautiful that provides them with comfort and joy. A part of the effects of gardening comes from the satisfaction people get from nurturing and helping a living thing grow. Plants and gardening soothe people because they help them turn their stressful feelings into something positive which gives them pleasure.

If you are depressed you should start investing your time in gardening and these miracles of nature will take care of you and your depression.

“Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” – Luther Burbank
