Flowers - the Perfect Morning Pick-me-up

November 15, 2010

Skip the morning coffee - if you would like more happiness and smiles in the morning, bring home flowers to perk up your dresser, bathroom or kitchen. "Research confirms that flowers might be the perfect pick-me-up for millions of Americans who do not consider themselves “morning people.” Participants of a behavioral study conducted by researchers at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital confirmed that they feel least positive in the early hours but reported being happier and more energetic after looking at flowers first thing in the morning.

You'll be glad you did!"] Breakfast Flowers Gerbera Daisies[/caption] “The morning blahs, it turns out, is a real phenomenon, with positive moods – happiness, friendliness and warmth, for example – manifesting much later in the day,” says lead researcher Nancy Etcoff, Ph.D. “Interestingly, when we placed a small bouquet of flowers into their morning routines, people perked up.”" I have experienced this personally - for a long time, people would say 'your home must be beautiful with all the flowers'. Alas, for florists, if we feel we can sell it, we leave it snug in the flower cooler at 40 degrees to grace someone else's table. Like the shoemaker whose children have no shoes, we florists often live a flower-less existence at home. Recently, I decided I didn't have to put up with this, and started cutting more flowers from my yard, and bringing home arrangements from my shop, and I feel SO much better when I am in their presence. So try it out yourself - see if the research is right. Pick up a Market bouquet of your favorite flowers at your local florist, or purchase a Flower of the Month club for yourself or someone else.
