When was the last time you indulged in a beautiful bunch of flowers? For some people flowers are an item that is only gifted and not something that you would buy for yourself. However, flowers are so much more than just a special gift to a friend or loved one. Plus who says you can’t buy yourself a bouquet of flowers!
Whether it’s a small bunch from the supermarket while you are doing your weekly shopping or a specially ordered bouquet from the florist, here are 4 reasons you should indulge in fresh flowers!
- To Celebrate a Special Occasion
So, we said that fresh flowers don’t have to just be a special occasion gift but in this instance we aren’t talking about a birthday, anniversary or job promotion. What passes as a congratulatory moment differs for everyone.Treat yourself to a big bunch of fresh blooms for things such as hitting your weight loss goal, filling in your tax return or getting your kids to school on time. Or, even for something as small as getting out of bed and showing up for the day. While this sounds like a simple task, sometimes it can be one of the hardest things to do. Don’t forget, indulging in fresh flowers is a form of self care and you can’t say no to that!
- To Cheer Yourself Up
Sometimes you just feel down and a bit flat. While you may not be able to completely change your mood, indulging in fresh blooms will put a smile on your face, even if it is for a short while.Flowers have been proven to increase happiness and are a great way to add some colour to an otherwise drab and dull day. Sit them on your desk at work or place them in a high traffic area within your home. You are bound to smile each time you look at them.
- To Ease Anxiety
Similar to cheering yourself up, fresh flowers are a great way to ease anxiety. This can be especially helpful during work hours or when going through a stressful personal period. If you are suffering from anxiety or stress, whether it be at home or at work, look for soothing colours that can help to reduce stress. Purples and blues are great for this.Fresh flowers will also help to bring the outside in, as getting closer to nature has been told to help ease the mind and reduce stress and anxiety. This is a great substitute if you can’t easily access bushland or lush green areas. Your florist will be able to put together a stunning bouquet or display that will help ease the mind and nurture the soul.
- Why Not
Why not treat yourself to some fresh flowers? Take the time to browse your local florist or fresh flower supplier and take in the sights and smells of the blooms. Pick something that catches your eye and display it in your home or work space. You will be surprised what a difference a bunch of flowers can make to your living space. Taking time for yourself is an important part of taking care of yourself. Indulge in some flowers and feel the difference that they can bring to you.
