I started my day looking at my flowers and I want to share with you how important are them for us.
Our environment can play a very important role when it comes to our mood. Sometimes life gets hard and it becomes difficult to see the light in the darkness around us. To feel better, having a positive mindset is very necessary, but also the objects and beings that surround us are critical too.
Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy”, says Haviland-Jones, “and now science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well-being.”
Here are five main points as condensed from her report:
- Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness.
Study participants expressed true or excited smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups.
- Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods.
Study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction.
- Flowers make intimate connections.
The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends.
- Flowers are a symbol for sharing.
The study explored where in their homes people displayed flowers. Once received, arrangements were placed in areas of the home that are open to visitors – such as foyers, living rooms and dining rooms – suggesting that flowers make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere.
- People who buy more flowers are happier.
Once learning the study results, participants in all age and gift categories reported that they would be buying more flowers in the future.
In the Tarot, the rose is considered a symbol of balance. It expresses promise, new beginnings, and hope. Their beauty and elegance are so attractive that roses are considered a favourite flower for weddings, as a gift for a special someone, and as a symbol of true love and friendship.
They can also help us eliminate stress. As a study in the Journal of Physiological Anthropology found, office workers who looked at roses felt more relaxed and comfortable in their work environment.
With so much stress and depression in today’s world, it’s great to know that something as simple as a bouquet of flowers can help to cheer someone up
