Calming Economic Woes With Flowers

Calming Economic Woes With FlowersNot only is winter about to set in but we all have economic problems knocking at our door. Most of us are looking for a boost but do not have the money to do it. Experts are predicting that most of us will cope by allowing ourselves small luxuries.

Consumer psychologist and professor of business and psychology, Kit Yarrow, at Golden Gate University in San Francisco says, “small indulgences are like life’s exclamation points. Even in a down economy, when people are getting smaller luxuries, they’re even more important. We need to feel bolstered. We need to feel delighted.”

“Other research has proven that flowers make people happy when they receive them. What we didn’t know is that spending a few days with flowers in the home can positively affect a wide variety of feelings.”

The next time you need a boost from a small luxury in life, fresh-cut flowers are probably the smartest spend. A behavioral study found that people feel less anxiety, worry and depression when they have fresh-cut flowers in their presence – these are great benefits when we are expecting difficult times ahead.
