Research has shown that the impact of flowers can last not just for moments but for days – brightening your mood, boosting your energy and just giving you an overall feel-good feeling.
Flowers are known to chase away anxieties and worries by making people feel less depressed, troubled or agitated. This is linked to their colour, smell or even the act of giving or receiving flowers.
