More Brits are putting wellness at the top of their agendas and the quest for a healthier lifestyle never seems to end. From adopting a balanced and nutritious diet to walking 10,000 steps and doing regular yoga or adopting meditation techniques in order to relax more easily and sleep more deeply.
An August 2020 survey found that over 51% of people in the UK value wellness more now than they did a couple of years ago. With more people thinking of shifting to healthier lifestyles, one of the best gifts you could give to loved ones this holiday season is a wellness-themed one. Flowers and plants are well known to not only aid rest and relaxation but to soak up free radicals from the atmosphere, delivering more oxygen at the same time, so the gift of nature will also be the gift of wellness.
