Why Flowers

Published: Monday 16 April 2012

Do you remember the last time someone gave you flowers? What about the last time you gave flowers? Chances are, that memory is vivid. And there�s a reason why: Flowers come wrapped in emotion. Since the dawn of time, people have intuitively known the power flowers have on feelings. Only recently our intuition was proven right. Researchers at Harvard, Rutgers and Texas A&M universities have conducted studies proving flowers make people happy, spark creativity and decrease anxiety. Research conducted by psychologist Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., of Rutgers University proves the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. �Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy,� says Dr. Haviland-Jones. �Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well being.� Her research also shows flowers make intimate connections, even inspiring increased social activity among seniors in addition to easing depression.
