How Can Floral Design Elements Evoke Happiness?
Hi Friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I am ready for a bit of springtime- fresh starts and flowers! I love seeing them, being surrounded by them and making them! And then I began to wonder, why?!
Rutgers University conducted a 10-month behavioral study that concluded flowers improve emotional health by triggering our happy emotions by connecting us with nature!! At that moment, the fast-pace of our lives melts away and a sense of peace and calm ensues. Imagine how floral design elements can evoke the same feeling!
It has been proven that flowers, one of God’s many wonderful gifts, stimulate trust and relay our intentions to care for our relationships!
It is not only their beauty that positively affects our mood but their colors also elicit positive and calming emotions. Look for pinks, peaches and warm tones to nurture, reds and oranges for sensuality, blues and purples to relax, and bright, contrasting colors to inspire celebration. These colors can be incorporated into floral design elements in your home to give you whatever mood you wish to arouse.
Flowers can be considered one of the fastest brands of medicine. I know when I receive flowers I am instantaneously happy! Maybe that is why I never changed the floral treatment in my mudroom hallway. Passing through that space multiple times a day really does brighten my day.
The positive moods of those who enjoy flowers are long term. They will be less anxious, depressed, restless and experience more enjoyment, which leads to a happier life!
It’s a fact that flowers inspire social behavior, leading to increased contact with others, especially friends and family.
Flowers create a positive, welcoming atmosphere, whether placed in a vase or painted on the wall. There are no two ways about it: flowers elicit positive emotions and inspire happiness. Surround yourself and those you love with nature’s own happy pill by using floral design elements in your home!
