According research conducted by Rutgers University, the presence of flowers has a long-term positive effect on moods. Study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious, and agitated after receiving flowers. They also demonstrated greater sense of life satisfaction.
One famous study found that women who received flowers smiled the Duchenne, or brain changing, smile, which is a smile of true enjoyment associated with crinkling around the eyes and raising of the cheeks. This smile is associated with positive emotions and related changes in the brain. Gifts of fruit and candles did not elicit this kind of smile, nor did fake flowers. These women also tended to initiate contact with family members or friends and to be more social after receiving the flowers.
Other research on older adults found that those who got flowers performed better on memory tests and were happier. In a similar vein, keeping plants and flowers in the workplace has been found to stimulate the minds of workers by helping them concentrate, leading to more accurate and higher-quality work. Additional studies have proven that flowers relieve anxiety and depression and foster compassion towards others.
