Fresh flowers in our homes offer many psychological benefits. Rutgers University conducted a 10-month study on the emotional impact of flowers and found that they are a natural moderator of moods. Participants even reported that they felt less stressed and agitated when they consistently had fresh flowers.
With people’s desire for tranquility and stress relief stronger than ever, fresh research takes an insightful look at flowers and the important role they may play in our daily lives. A behavioral research study conducted by Nancy Etcoff, Ph.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home.
The Home Ecology of Flowers Study at Harvard uncovered three main findings:
- Flowers feed compassion.
- Study participants who lived with fresh cut flowers for less than a week felt an increase in feelings of compassion and kindness for others.
- Flowers chase away anxieties, worries and the blues at home.
