Fresh Flowers Look and Smell Great

Duh, right? But nothing brightens up a space more easily than a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers.  It not only adds color and a wonderful scent to your space, but it adds a vibrancy as well.

Fresh Flowers Elevate Your Mood

They’re an easy, thoughtful way to bring the outside in, which does wonders for our mind, body and spirit. Like the sun, it helps melt away negativity, and replaces it with a glow of positivity and energy.

The brighter the colors the more they elevate our mood. The softer the colors the more they bring us to a relaxed state. Regardless of which colors you pick, they always manage to take the edge off of difficult situations.  This explains why it’s common place to send flowers when someone is sick or going through hard times.  There’s just something about surrounding ourselves with living things that makes us feel alive and energized.

Fresh Flowers Make You Productive

Productive? Yes! And it makes total sense given the mood elevation benefits outlined above. I don’t know about you but when I feel tired, stressed, or anxious about something, it not only manifests itself in my mood, but in how I tackle life.  I tend to be unorganized, less focused and easily distracted.  However, when I decide to treat myself to some fresh flowers and all the benefits they bring, I not only begin to feel my mood become more relaxed and open, but I tend to feel more put together, organized, focused and creative.  I tend to take on all my adulting responsibilities head on as I start tackling all the things on my to do list.

That’s the thing about doing things for yourself.  When you do one thing, you begin chipping away at any disconnects in your mind, body, spirit connection. You begin quieting that demanding mind and allow a space for stillness and appreciation of the present moment. The senses then show us the way to enjoy that which is before us, as we begin to let go of any burdens or stress.  Yes, flowers can help with all that.

So the next time you hit your local grocery store don’t bypass the floral department. Stop and see the amazing floral options available to add to your self-care routine and/or that of those around you.

Lately, my eyes have been drawn to the Lone Star Living ® bouquets. Their bouquets use flowers grown with Texas in mind and are conveniently available at your local H-E-B.



Plus their bouquets come in an easy carry pouch and change every month, which offers just the right amount of variety I need. So take time and literally stop and smell the roses.  Allow the beauty and scents from the flowers to take you away from the hustle and bustle and see all that we have to be grateful for.



Where will you be enjoying your Lone Star Living bouquet?
