2. Flowers Elevate Your Mood

It’s hard to have a bad day when you’re surrounded by beauty. Research shows that flowers improve our mental health by triggering happy emotions and even positive social behaviors.

One Harvard study found that decorating with a fresh bouquet for even one week led participants to feel more compassion for others, experience less worry and anxiety, and develop fewer feelings of depression.

3. Flowers Add a Pop of Color

For those who get bored with the same styling for too long, flowers offer a quick way to switch things up. A bouquet can add a pop of color to neutral spaces like bathrooms, and you can change up the color scheme every week.

With the hustle and bustle of the fast-paced everyday lifestyle, it’s more important than ever to take time and smell the roses (and the lilies)! Connecting with nature through outdoor gardening or bringing nature inside as cut flowers or is sure to have anyone feeling true “flower power!”
