Flowers create euphoria – they make us ridiculously happy, brightening even the dreariest of moods. And that’s not just our opinion – it’s science…
A Rutgers University study found that the link between flowers and your satisfaction with life is far more important than previously thought. Having flowers in your home increased happiness, reduces depression and anxiety and actually can increase emotional contact with friends and family. A separate study by Harvard University found the same results – increased compassion, feeling less negative, and more energy at work. In a trifecta of flower research, Texas A & M University found that flowers and plants in the workplace improve problem solving skills and increase creativity.
The purpose of this post is to share why you should buy yourself flowers. Don’t wait for a birthday, a promotion or a gift – treat yourself to a fresh bouquet this week. And do it again next week. Here’s why buying yourself flowers is so darn good for you:
As stated in the above quote, flowers are directly linked to the happy, feel-good stuff. Surround yourself with blooms to give your mood a boost!
A fresh bouquet has such a clean, crisp fragrance – uplifting, encouraging and peaceful. Bringing flowers into your home or workspace will awake the most delicious scent, in turn, quenching your senses.
Adding flowers to a space creates something new, unique and delicately beautiful. A bouquet in your kitchen, your dining room, or even on your nightstand will immediately add a refined touch. Your home can easily be updated with variety of blooms, week after week.
INVITING TO GUESTS
Fresh flowers in your home are the best welcome party around. Your family, friends and guests will sense your gracious hospitality and warm invitation – it’s the little things.
Flowers change the aesthetic of your environment, sparking new energy, awakening your senses, and providing a fresh canvas for a creative workflow.
When you buy yourself flowers you are empowering yourself. You are taking care of yourself. You are strengthening your confidence. You are willing to spend the money on yourself – an act of self care, self love and self appreciation. You don’t need a reason, you don’t need an okay from someone else – this is about you taking care of you (the most important person in your life).
