How heat affects mental health.

When the temperature rises above average, stress, violence and aggression increase. According to a published scientific study, for every degree that the temperature rises, mortality related to mental health increases by 2.2%. Numerous studies link the increase in temperature with changes in our mood and behaviour, greater psychiatric emergencies, a higher number of traffic accidents, a drop in work performance, worsening psychological disorders such as depression, stress, anxiety and sleep disorders.

To regain wellbeing, it is important to stay hydrated, not to expose oneself to the sun and not to practice sport during the critical hours of the day. More and more social services are setting up climatic shelters and care programmes for the elderly, although the essential thing for everyone is to adjust the rhythms of our daily lives to the changes in temperature: adjust schedules, acclimatise spaces well, making conscious use of air conditioning, wearing cooler clothes made from natural fabrics and adapting new routines at home to the summer, such as eating fruit and vegetables.

In this sense we recommend scenting the atmosphere in a sustainable and healthy way, with FLOR DE FLORES, the aromatherapeutic and organic fragrance, thermoregulatory, calming and relaxing and that helps to release tension with ylang- ylang and other hypotensive essential oils that lower the high levels of serotonin and dopamine. Highly recommended in areas where the atmosphere can become tense and in homes where there are people who are sensitive to temperature changes and are affected by it. FLOR DE FLORES is also a very inspiring fragrance that will help to create an optimal working environment while perfuming and sanitising the atmosphere in a natural and toxic-free way.
