These Summertime Flowers Will Bring Joy to Your Life

“Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.” – John Harrigan

No matter how flowers are received, they always find a special place in our hearts. In fact, summertime flowers are known to bring joy into our lives. We live during a time where life goes by quickly and things happen before the blink of an eye. We rely on technology and miss out on important things. It’s why most of us feel constantly stressed out. This leaves us looking for ways to relieve stress and search for joy.

How can flowers help?

The presence of flowers brings happy emotions and feelings of satisfaction. Can you think of a time where you either gave someone flowers or received flowers yourself and didn’t feel at least a tiny bit of joy? In fact, there are lots of reasons they bring happiness. They can change our mood, create intimacy between people, and help turn our frowns upside down!

Summertime flowers can give us a connection to nature and allow us to take a break from our daily hustle and bustle. The bright colors in this month’s bouquet are also sure to bring you joy by balancing physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental energy.

What Else?

Did you know that flowers can even bring us joy on a psychological level? That’s right! By triggering happy brain chemicals like dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin, they bring about so many different emotions.

Whether you’re giving them, receiving them, or admiring them from afar, flowers stimulate excitement, love, trust, and JOY.

This summer, we want you to focus on finding the happiness you deserve. Spontaneously pick up some flowers for someone you care about or swing by your local HEB and treat yourself to a colorful bouquet. It’s a wonderful sign of appreciation for someone and a great form of self-care.

Floral Horoscope

As the sun begins to move out of Gemini and into Cancer territory, we’re officially in the summer season.

So, what does your zodiac have to say about you in relation to flowers?

Cancer: The Crab

Cancerians are emotional and easily stimulated, so it’s no surprise that they LOVE receiving flowers! They also tend to find comfort in sticking to what they know. For this reason, they adore white flowers and are sure to love the mums in this month’s bouquet! Like the gentle nature of those born under the Cancer zodiac sign, white flowers are elegant, subtle, and loved worldwide.

With a little bit of extra free time this summer, don’t let the season go by without indulging in the things you love most and finding reasons to be joyful. Care for yourself and treat yourself to a bouquet of happiness and summertime flowers!

Don’t Hate, Self-Appreciate: 5 Ways How

How do you show appreciation to someone that has done something nice for you? The answer is don’t hate, self-appreciate. Most of us would say “thank you” or look for a way to return the courtesy.

But how often do we take the time to self-appreciate and thank ourselves for all that we do? In fact, how many times do we thank ourselves for getting up and getting through the day?

Thank Yourself

Rather than being hard on yourself for the mistakes you make or the things you don’t do right, self-appreciation is about thanking yourself for all the things you do, no matter how you do them.  

Self-appreciation means being grateful for who you are—whether that means being thankful for your body and what it can do, or being thankful for your personality, talents, and gifts. People could have strengths and natural gifts, and not value them. When you’re grateful for these traits and DO value them, it’s considered self-appreciation.
