Mental Health and Flowers

There has been an abundance of talk about the importance of mental health lately, as there should be. We watch what we eat. We work out. We park further away from the store to get extra steps in. We eat organic foods. We cut back on carbs. We drink more water. We get more sleep…well, we mean to… We do all of these things to lead healthier lives. What we need to realize is our mental health is just as important as our physical health, if not more. Meditation, travel, actually relaxing on your day off, all of these help your mental health. They give your brain a chance to recharge. Getting the care and support you need is so important as well. Never hesitate to find counseling for your mental health.

You can start working on your mental health at home. Clear out any clutter. Paint your walls in calm, soothing colors. Create a space where you can have down time to unplug and unwind. Bring in plants to freshen the air. Plants clear toxins from the air and create oxygen…we all learned that in middle school science right?

It is also proven that fresh flowers bring health and happiness to our lives. Bringing flower arrangements into your home or giving them to others can reduce depression and anxiety. They can enhance memory and give a room a positive feeling, making patients heal faster physically as well as mentally.

It’s amazing what bringing a bit of nature into your home, whether it be a plant or a bouquet of flowers can do. Four Seasons Flowers has a wonderful selection of flower arrangements and plants to brighten up your space. Contact us to order an arrangement, plant, or dish garden at 1-858-484-7700 , on our site www.mysandiegoflowers.com , or come in to our beautiful shop.

You can take one of our offered Fall or Holiday classes and learn how to create an arrangement of your own. We also do private classes, then you can share the fun and health benefits with your friends and family!

Raffle For A Cure

Four Seasons Flowers is a proud supporter of the Parkinson’s Association Summit Walk for Stem Cell Research and we need your help to climb the Summit and help research find a cure!

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) became a personal story to Four Seasons owner Carma Bertran White, and her family, when her older sister Elena was diagnosed back in 2011. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disease for which there is no cure and it is the second most prevalent neurodegenerative disorder behind Alzheimer disease, affecting over 1.5%-2% of the population over the age of 60. Currently, in the United States, there are approximately 1 million persons with PD and an estimated 7 to 10 million people worldwide. By the time the disease is generally diagnosed, approximately 60-80% of the dopamine (DA) producing neurons have been destroyed. The research project’s goal is to replace the lost dopamineurgic cells with brand new dopamine producing neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). This revolutionary Nobel Prize winning process utilizes a patient’s own skin cells to create induced pluripotent stem cells.  

Summit for Stem Cell Foundation’s vision is to bring to market an efficacious and safe induced pluripotent stem cell-based therapy for all patients with Parkinson’s disease. Their  mission is to increase awareness, educate and raise funds in support of research that will result in a victory over Parkinson’s disease.

Carma and her sister Elena will be trekking on the next “Pilgramage For Parkinson’s” in El Camino de Santiago, Spain to help raise awareness and the much-needed funds to help all patients who are affected by this devastating disease.

Make Your Valentine Feel Special

 

The history of Valentine’s Day and the story of its Patron Saint St. Valentine, who died February 14, 269 AD, dates back to the 3rd century. The essential need for Love has endured throughout the ages and February 14th is the day we celebrate romance and affection. Valentine’s Day is our adopted tradition and expectation of sharing feelings of love with those closest to us. And what better way to share our affections than with beautiful roses. The Classic Red Rose has become the signature flower for Valentine’s Day and is a timeless symbol of Love. This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday which makes it the perfect opportunity to surprise your Valentine with a bouquet delivered to their workplace. What better way to make your significant other feel special and loved!

At Four Seasons Flowers we make it our mission to help you express your feelings with those you love and care about through the gift of flowers. We have many beautiful Valentine’s Day arrangements to choose from, with something for every budget. Be sure to order early for the best options and selection.
