3 Ways Flower Arrangements Impact Emotional Health, Branford Center, Connecticut

Flower arrangements have become a positive symbol for a number of occasions—you can often find them at weddings, anniversaries, and special events. Studies are now showing that they do much more than just brighten up a room; they actually have an impact on your emotional well-being.

Florists at Myers Flowers in Branford, CT, can attest to the power of a stunning arrangement. They affect a person’s mood in many ways, and they can be the perfect solution if you’re looking to brighten someone’s day. Read on to see how a beautiful flower arrangement plays a role in how you’re feeling. 

3 Ways Flower Arrangements Affect Your Emotional Health

1. Increasing Happiness

The gift of giving flower arrangements stems from showing affection or gratitude, but studies by a behavioral science team at Rutgers University have shown that it goes a step further. Upon receiving flowers, people have been shown to receive a large boost in happiness. This feeling of joy becomes associated with the gifted flowers, creating an emotional attachment to them that evokes happiness each time the recipient sees their blooms.

2. Encouraging Congregation

flower arrangementsPeople often display flowers in their homes, and in many cases, choose to put them in areas they want guests to congregate in. Flower arrangements naturally create an inviting atmosphere that welcomes guests and encourages kinship. By generating positive moods, flower arrangements foster sharing and comfort, which is why you’ll often see flowers at a wedding or funeral.

3. Increasing Bodily Function

The psychological benefits of flower arrangements can have a significant impact on how the body functions. A 2008 study showed that when hospital patients received flowers, they required less pain medication and showed significant decreases in blood pressure, heart rate, and anxiety. The idea is that the presence of flowers can drastically alter the mood and feeling of a room, which in turn creates a better quality of life.
