Stopping to smell the roses can mean many things, but literally speaking, it can improve our quality of life. Science is showing more all the time that interaction with nature raises our “happy” hormones such as serotonin and lowers the “stress” hormones such as cortisol. (1)
The fresh scent of a flower can remind us to be kind to ourselves. Watching a bud change into a bloom can remind us how precious life is. It is easier to remember what inspires us when we are surrounded by nature. At Lomond View, we believe that beauty is inspiring. We are honored to have spent that last 30 years helping residents throughout the Ogden area add a little of that beauty to their lives.
