“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.
