Flowers are beautiful, colorful, and add some brightness to a dull world. But the appearance of flowers actually affects people’s moods. The House of Flowers offers beautiful and cheerful bouquets and arrangements that can help brighten the house and your mood.
According to NDSU.edu, flowers can actually make you happier and have a positive effect on our minds. In a ten month long study done be researchers at Rutgers University, they found that flowers immediately impact a person’s happiness. When study participants received flowers they all showed excited or true smiles. They also found that flowers can have a long-term effect on moods—the participants stated that they felt less agitated, anxious, or depressed after given flowers. After the participants received the flowers they started contacting their families and friend more often, making better connections thanks to the flowers.
This study shows that flowers can affect us—both emotionally and behaviorally. Flowers caused beneficial feelings and actions and actually had a long-term effect on the participants. Flowers can help to reduce stress as well. But it isn’t just flowers. Plants in general can have many positive effects, including:
- Lowered blood pressure
