12 Ways Fresh Flowers at Home Make You Happy

12 Ways Flowers Make You Happy - simplybeinghappy.com-“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.”

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

It’s the day before Easter and my house is filled with fresh potted lillies, tulips and hyacinths – thanks to my husband Jim.  Being the sweet and savvy guy that he is, he headed to the local market yesterday and grabbed a bunch of them at half off.  They look and smell beautiful – and there’s no doubt that they just make you feel good.

But, I knew there was scientific backed research on the benefits of having fresh flowers in your home.  And after some digging, I got the list of the twelve proven benefits here.  Just keep in mind that even though they are written in a simple list below, (because I wanted to make this post a quick read) the scientific studies on each one of the benefits were extensive.

  1. Elevate Your Mood
  2. Make You Feel More Relaxed
  3. Make You Less Anxious
  4. Make You More Empathetic Towards Others
  5. Boost Your Productivity
  6. Increase Your Energy
  7. Boost Enthusiasm
  8. Optimistic Energy Follows You Through Your Day
  9. Boost Creativity
  10. Increase Concentration
  11. Increase Productivity
  12. Improve Your Health by Cleaning the Air
