The Reason Why Flowers Make People Happy

Happiness held is the seed;

happiness shared is the flower.

John Harrigan

In this age where everything is happening at the speed of light and timed down to the last second, where work takes priority and technology is taking over, it is natural that one can feel stressed out! It is no wonder why so many scientists out there are doing research to determine how to relieve stress in this crazy world.
Flowers make people happy

According to behavioral 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 behavior 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 also 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.”

But, you didn’t need a study to tell you that flowers make people happy right? The proof definitely lies in the pudding. Brighten a loved one’s day and fill it with joy by sending flowers straight to their front door today!
