Spring flowers are here!

It should not be a secret that flowers have a way of bringing happiness to people. They can excite all five senses with their look and smell. We love them- that is no secret.

Science has proven that there is a true connection between flowers and happiness.

In a study done by Rutgers University here are five main points  from the report:

Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness.

Study participants  of all ages expressed true or excited smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude.

Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods.

Study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers.

Flowers make intimate connections.

The presence of flowers led to more contact with family and friends.

Flowers are a symbol for sharing.

The study explored  where people displayed flowers in their homes. 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.

 

Take note of #4 & #5- we love to share flowers with as many people as we can! Cut them from your pots or garden- order them  from us- either way- giving flowers to others (even yourself) is going to make your day feel a bit more joyful!
