How do you feel when you receive flowers? If you are like most, your entire attitude changes.

A recent study that was published in Hort Technology, showed that patients recovered quicker from their surgeries when flowers or potted plants were in their hospital rooms. Strange but true.

Everyone knows how sterile and uncomfortable hospitals can be, but adding some greenery changes the entire atmosphere.

The use of drugs for pain control were used less and the fatigue was also lessened when flowers or plants were present in a patients room.

Want to bring a bit of sunshine to a loved one or friend in the hospital? Consider bringing them a potted plant or flowers and watch their entire face light up.
