Floral Arranging with a
Focus on Mental Health
I always said if I won the lottery, I would have fresh flowers in my house all the time.
Well, I didn't win the lottery, but I realized that you don't have to be rich to enjoy the benefits of fresh flowers. Playing with flowers is one of my hobbies - but it's hard to separate work from play so I add a mental health spin to all of my floral arranging activities and gather research on how flowers provide benefits to your mental health.
