Flowers scientifically proven to spread good cheer
December 21, 2010
Two independent studies have confirmed what many people already knew - humans behave better when they're around
The studies, conducted by Nancy Etcoff of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School and Jeannette Haviland-Jones of Rutgers, found that people generally reported more positive feelings after being in a room with flowers, expressing compassion and kindness with greater ease, DailyCamera.com reports.
Those with an argumentative bunch of guests set to arrive at their
parties this year may want to take a cue from all of this research and set up a flower arrangement or two in their homes. DailyCamera.com recommends placing flowers in rooms where guests are sure to congregate the most, such as the kitchen, the dining room and the living room. Having the bouquets central to your gathering space will ensure guests get exposure to the blooms.
For gentle blooms that evoke compassion and goodwill, include alstroemeria, which symbolizes
, hydrangeas for sincerity, irises for a complimentary tone or peonies for compassion, according to FlowerMeanings.org.
