DETROIT — In case you were wondering whether or not to send a special someone some flowers this chilly spring, here’s new research from Detroit-based FlowerDeliveryExpress.com.
The company, which I’m sure is completely objective on this matter, reported Wednesday that new research from Rutgers University discovered that flowers can change mood in a positive manner and that the effect is long-lasting.
“What’s most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way,” said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher on te study.
The research explored the link between flowers and life satisfaction in a 10-month study of participants’ behavioral responses to receiving flowers.
They found that:
* Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness.
* Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods.
* Flowers increase intimate connections with family and friends.
“Flowers bring about positive emotional feelings in those who enter a room,” said Dr. Haviland-Jones. “They make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere.”
The flower delivery service helpfully noted that right now, you can choose tulips or daisies in bright red, yellow and pink colors. Daffodils are a traditional spring flower in yellow and white. Also Easter lilies are available at this time for the holiday.
