Flowers To Make Us Feel Better About Ourselves

Gardens full of beautiful flowers have been a part of our world for thousands of years. Yet, even though flowers don’t provide us with any of our basic needs like food or clothing fibers, why do we spend so much time planting and caring for flowers?

A study was conducted at Rutgers University in New Jersey and the results of that study offer scientific proof that flowers provide happiness, surely a necessity for our emotional well being. The study was conducted under the direction of Jeannette M. Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., who is a psychologist and internationally known expert in emotional development in human behavior. Regarding the results, Dr. Haviland-Jones said, “The most exciting thing about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way.”

Conducted over a period of 10 months, the study produced proof of the following:

* Flowers immediately affect happiness.
* The impact of flowers is both positive and long-term.
* Flowers are helpful in enabling connections between people.

In the stressful world we live in, isn’t it nice to know that by taking the simple step of purchasing flowers, you can quickly improve your own mood or someone else’s? And, better yet, the flowers you buy for yourself will make those who see them happy as well. Just place them in a high-traffic area like the entryway to your home, on your kitchen table, or in the family’s sitting room. Dr. Haviland-Jones agrees, saying, “Flowers bring about positive emotional feelings in those who enter a room. They make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere.”

Want to boost the mood of your employees and customers? Place flowers in your lobby and in areas used by your employees, like the break room, cafeteria, or meeting rooms. You’ll benefit by having a more beautiful workplace and you’ll see more smiles around the office. Improved morale can also increase employee productivity, so your small purchase of flowers can result in huge returns!

Your local florist can help you choose the perfect flowers for any occasion and can even help you pick the right flowers to match the recipients personality or the space they’ll be placed in.
