When was the last time you treated yourself to a bunch of flowers? Do you find buying fresh blooms a waste of money because of their short life-span?
Some of my friends haven't bought a bunch in years because of how quickly they die, but I just might have something to convince them otherwise. According to a research in the Netherlands, fresh flowers have a huge connection to our well-being. Supposedly the presence of flowers in our home, workplace or even hospital can make even the most stressed or poorly person feel less anxious and instantly more relaxed. There is just one little thing to consider when picking up a bunch: always remember that less saturated and brighter colours are generally more relaxing, while bold saturated colours will surely energize you.
So what do you say, are you convinced? Fancy getting a flower or two after work?

P.P.S: Flower niftiness.
