3 Reasons To Fill Your House With Fresh Flowers

I don’t mind admitting my obsession with fresh flowers and well, greenery in general. I love having both in the house as much as possible, especially since I taught Buddy to stop and smell the peonies…or whatever is in the vase. I love to pick up fun bouquets from the grocery store and create my own arrangements but you don’t have to spend a dime or be a Martha Stewart to add pops of green in your home. I often take a pair of scissors outside our house and cut some twigs off of a tree in the backyard and stick them in vase. True story!

So why fill your house with fresh blooms?

  1. They cure the morning blues. If you’re looking to add a little pep in your morning step (who isn’t?) place fresh flowers or a small houseplant on your bedside table. Trust me: that will perk you right up before your morning cup of coffee.
  2. They make you happier. Research consistently links indoor flowers and plants to increased happiness, positive energy levels and a reduction in anxiety. Flowers have long-lasting effects on people’s moods and the happier you are, the more likely you are to pass that happiness on to others throughout the day.
  3. They boost your enthusiasm and energy. Having flowers in your home carries over to the workplace. A recent study found that people were more likely to have more energy and enthusiasm at work when flowers were found in their house. How neat is that!? xo
