5 Reasons Why You Should Give Yourself Flowers
We have always given other people flowers or received them from other people, but every now and then, one just feels like getting some flowers. But obviously, you can’t ask someone to send you any because that seems strange. So, be your own lover and send yourself some lovely roses, lilies, pansies or any favorite flower. This might seem a bit bizarre to some but it’s not because here we give you 5 good reasons you should send yourself a fresh bouquet of flowers. 1. You Deserve It You need to feel good about yourself and don’t have to wait around for anyone else to send you a bouquet of roses. Everything starts with loving yourself through self-acceptance. Just remember all the achievements you had in your life and give yourself a pat on the back and get yourself some flowers. You can either go buy them directly or place an order online and receive them at work or home. The feeling of receiving some bright and colorful flowers will surely make your day worthwhile. 2. Decorate Sometimes you need to add a pop of color to your living or working space and what could be better than flowers? Place a vase or bouquet on your office desk and it would feel more like home to you. They work as great conversation starters and your colleagues will give you compliments as well. Flowers instantly turn a bland and boring environment into a colorful and scented area of bliss. For home you can place them in a vase and use it as a centerpiece or in your room for a hint of natural décor. 3. Reduces Stress Did you know that plants have that natural ability to reduce stress and anxiety levels in people? Studies have shown that looking at beautiful plants and flowers reduces cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body and the brain releases endorphins that create feelings of joy and relaxation. Human beings are naturally receptive of anything that is from nature because our ancestors lived closely with nature, such as in forests and valleys. After the advent of technology and cities transforming into concrete jungles, greenery became less. So when we see flowers, our primitive and innate nature responds to them and feels happy because that is our true relationship with the Earth. So anytime you are feeling blue, instead of listening to a sad song just get yourself some lovely flowers to make yourself feeling better. 4. To Increase Creativity Sharpen your creative juices with getting yourself some fresh flowers. Flowers represent liveliness and prosperity and getting them can boost your creative senses up a few notches. The uplifting scent and their flawless beauty can make anyone a poet or artist. 5. Loving Yourself If you don’t love yourself then others won’t either. If you send out positive vibes in the universe then it will come right back to you as well. Therefore, sending yourself flowers is one of the best ways to remind yourself that you deserve to be loved and receive love. Whether its lilies, roses, chrysanthemums or daffodils, every flower will bring you a sense of love and joy.
