The best feeling in the world is that first day of spring when you sit on the park bench smelling flowers and enjoying warm and sunny afternoon. You look at those flowers as something that is only beautiful and serves a kind of an esthetic purpose, with their soothing smell that fills the room when we put it in a crystalvase. While you are looking at it, a light smile appears on your face, and your heart fills with a little bit of happiness. But have you ever stop to think why they have such strong influence?Many other questions might arise, like why do we buy flowers to someone we love when we want to make them feel better?Or when we want to make up for something wrong we did? It is usually men who appear at the door with a bouquet of red roses, sometimes accompanied with a box of chocolate.
Science did research on why we eat chocolate when we are sad, and the explanation is that it has a great influence on our dopamine levels, and the fact is that only after a few bars we already feel a bit different. Lately, they have tried to give the scientific explanation for flowers too and they have come to a conclusion that they actually have a significant effect on our mood.
