Don’t you love the warm and fuzzy feelings you get when a loved one surprises you with a bouquet of flowers? Beyond being beautiful and fragrant, flowers deliver a health-promoting array of benefits.
Benefits of fresh flowers
1. Bouquets can boost your mood
Bright, fresh cut flowers instantly improve your mood. People with fresh flowers in their homes are most likely to feel less worried and feel fewer periods of anxiety or depression.
2. Bouquets are welcoming
They bring positive emotional feelings to those who enter a room. Place flowers in places visitors see, such as the foyer, living room and dining room. Flowers make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere. And just think, every time you walk into or through your home, they will make you feel welcome and “at home”, too.
3. It Double as inspiring decor
Flowers can easily take the place of boring everyday table decor. Coordinate bouquet colors with your space, or place a bright bouquet on a shabby old table to draw the eye and lend to a fresh new look that makes you feel good about your living space. They also make it easy to decorate for each season.
