Flowers Are the Best Way to Beat the Holiday Blues

Funny and cute little girl with Santa hat holding a big poinsettiaThe holidays are upon us, but this season of good tidings and merry wishes can also be the source of stress for many people. From shopping and decorating to making travel plans and remembering loved ones no longer with us, it isn’t hard for even the jolliest elf to get a touch of the holiday blues.

Not surprisingly, sending flowers is a perfect way to spread some holiday cheer to others who are feeling less than joyful. Studies have proven time and again that sending flowers not only provides cheer and happiness to the recipient, but also provide an emotional boost to the sender as well.

In fact, studies by Rutgers University found that flowers are a “powerful positive emotion inducer,” and they provide a Duchene or true smile when presented to recipients. The studies also found a variety of other immediate and long-term emotional health benefits from flowers including: “Emotional reactions, mood, social behaviors and even memory.”
