The Real Reasons Why Flowers Make People Happy

Happiness Held Is the Seed;
Happiness Shared Is the Flower.

John Harrigan

Work, family and regular daily commitments cause plenty of stress in our life.
Sometimes we can struggle to manage it and it can be exacerbated by perceived crisis situations, which emerge from time to time. That is the reason why many scientists are doing research to determine how to relieve and manage stress on a daily basis, and … some have found a simple remedy…

Flowers do make us happy …

According to behavioural research conducted at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, there is a really simple way to improve emotional health – by sending flowers. The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behaviour in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed.

Dr. Haviland-Jones said: “Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy. Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well-being.”

The study also found that flowers improve emotional health, making people feel instantly happy when they receive flowers from a loved one!

The results of the study show that flowers are a moderator of moods and can change a person’s mood instantaneously.

Flowers make people feel happy. All of the participants in the study showed “true” or “excited” smiles when they received flowers, showing extreme happiness and gratitude.

Flowers make you feel happier for longer. The participants in the study reported that they feel less depressed after receiving flowers.

Flowers create intimacy.

Furthermore, the study looked at where people display their flowers. The lovely arrangements were placed in areas of the home that are open to visitors – like the foyer, living room and dining room – suggesting that flowers are a symbol for sharing with loved ones.

“Flowers bring about positive emotional feelings in those who enter a room,” said Dr. Haviland-Jones. “They make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere.”

So, we now know that flowers make people happy, thought of and cared for. Sending flowers is a simple but appreciated gesture to show your genuine care and love, and that He or She are in your thoughts.
