If you find yourself staring out your office window longingly at the trees and flowers you’re not alone. Biophilia hypothesis is the premise the we as humans have an innate desire to connection with nature. What’s unfortunate is that the majority of us spend six-days a week at our place of work and if it’s indoors it could be affecting our wellbeing and productivity. Since we spend so much time at work its important to have things in that space that will help. Having plants and flowers in the workplace is an easy way to boost productivity, creativity, vitality, and wellbeing. Here are the top reasons you need to have flowers arrangements in your workplace.
