Flower Power: Looking At These Pictures Will Reduce Your Anxiety Right Now

The power of flowers: did you know that just looking at images of nature is enough to reduce your stress and anxiety? A 2015 study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health found that just five minutes spent gazing at natural photos promotes relaxation and recovery after experiencing a stressful period. Who doesn’t need some of that right now?!

If you weren’t able to get outside into nature during the last few days, then I hope these photos bring nature to you! Flowers offer hope and joy, which is so important during the specific stressors of the global pandemic on those of us living with chronic illness. And the power of flowers means that savoring their beauty helps to improve our well-being.
