Emotional Impact of Flowers Study, Rutgers University
The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed, according to behavioral researchers in the Human Development Lab at Rutgers University. Researchers reported:     
   •  Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. Study participants expressed true, sincere smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups studied.     
   •  Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods. Study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction.
   •  Flowers make intimate connections. The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends.
