The Power of Flowers to Lift Your Spirits

If you’re feeling down, one of the best ways of lifting your spirits is to stop and smell some flowers.  Flowers have this ability of making us feel better.  How?  Well, just the sight of bright, cheery blooms is often enough to make us temporarily forget about our troubles.  The smell also helps lift our spirits.  How can one be sad or depressed when there are such great smelling flowers in the world? 

But while their physical traits can be quite uplifting, the main power of flowers is in their ability to make us remember things.  Scent, they say, is perhaps the most powerful sense associate with memory recall.  When we see or smell flowers, we are reminded of where they can from.  This memory can make us feel much better.

If the flowers were a gift from someone, the memory is of that person.  Thinking about him or her can be very moving, especially if the sender is a significant other or close friend.  Even if the flowers came from a co-worker or a business associate, the memory can still make you feel better.  Anyone who took the time to order flowers appreciates you, and just knowing that there’s someone out there who appreciates what you’ve done can be quite uplifting.

The other memory flowers can evoke is the memory of growing them.  This comes from cutting flowers out of your garden and putting them one your table or desk.  Looking at these flowers can remind you of your own garden.  This, in turn, can remind you of how peaceful it feels to work in the garden or how proud you are of seeing all of your flowers in bloom.

The power of flowers is great, and it’s important to remember that flowers can really brighten someone’s mood.  Next time you know someone needs their spirits lifted, send them flowers.  They will be very thankful.
