I recently watched a video on Instagram of someone handing out flowers to people in street. I noticed one of the ladies could not stop looking at her bouquet. She was studying it, like she was in awe of what was inside. So what is it that makes humans love these delicate little pieces of nature that we are lucky enough to work with every day?
Let’s talk about the obvious fact that they’re quite enjoyable to look at becasue who doesn’t want to look at something beautiful? Looking at lovely things generally brings about a sense of pleasure and appreciation, leading to positive emotions.
And then, there’s the the nature part. The concept of biophilia suggests that humans have an innate connection to nature. Flowers, being a part of the natural world, can trigger positive feelings by tapping into this inherent connection.
The act of giving or receiving flowers is also often associated with positive social interactions. Whether it’s a gesture of love, friendship, or celebration, the exchange of flowers can strengthen social bonds and create positive memories.
And then, there’s the memories. Particular flowers or scents can take you right back to a certain time, place or person in your life. A single whiff of a familiar bloom can revive the laughter of a special day, the warmth of a long-lost summer, or the comfort of a loved one’s embrace. In these instances, flowers become not just decorative elements but vessels of time travel, allowing you to revisit the past.
In summary, the positive impact of flowers on our emotions is a multifaceted phenomenon, encompassing our evolutionary history, sensory experiences, cultural influences, and personal associations. The presence of flowers in our surroundings can enhance our well-being and contribute to positive feelings. We’re so grateful that our professional (and sometimes personal) lives revolve around something so incredibly beautiful and meaningful.
