Stressed? Make Flowers Your Best Friend

It is said that, “The Earth laughs in flowers.” The presence of fresh flowers can brighten the gloomiest of days and often helps in bringing a smile of someone’s face. While it is commonly accepted that flowers bring out the best in people, it has now been proved by science that inhaling certain flower fragrances alters gene activity and blood chemistry in ways that reduces stress levels. So before you disregard gifting someone flowers and consider buying flowers a waste of money, think again. Below are listed flowers that will help you destress.

Lavender
Dried lavender is said to have aided in healing sleep disorders for centuries. The easiest way to bring it into practice is by sewing it into pillows or placing it in vases in your bedroom.

Daisy
In ancient Egypt, Daisies were inhaled commonly for healing the body of illnesses. If consumed with tea it aids to calm anxiety, headaches and induces sleep.


Flower Therapy

Evening Primose
Evening Primose is known to ease depression and balance hormones.

Rose
Roses naturally smell sweet and are used to convey warm greetings. The smell of roses are said to have a calming effect.

While we’ve handpicked Lavenders, Chamomiles, Daisies and Roses to help you relieve stress, all flowers that smell sweet, are said to have healing properties and can be used to relieve stress.

Simple things like tucking a flower bud behind your ear or into your pocket if you’re a guy, making a simple wreath, or headband out of little flowers, and adding a dash of style to your otherwise boring wardrobe by circling a garland of fresh flowers around your wrist, can add color to your otherwise mundane existence.

So it isn’t simply said that one must stop and smell the roses. So go ahead and buy yourself the next bouquet of flowers you see.

2.Quality Time

Days come and go. We wake up, go to our respective offices catch up with our loved one’s on holidays. But on Valentine’s Day people take special efforts to plan their day out well for their loved ones. Nothing quite matches up to spending a day spent well with the person you adore.

3.Exclusive Day Of Love

Through out the year, we do things that time and again prove our love to someone. We also tell them how much they mean to us. But all of this is done in between life. But Valentine’s Day makes loving someone and expressing love, doubly special, simply because it’s a day that exclusively celebrates love.

4.PDA Galore

PDA on Valentine’s Day is extra special. Almost everybody in love show it. Although it might be a little difficult for Singles to digest this, sometimes it’s a good idea to be happy in the happiness of others. Even if you’re bitterly single, the sight of watch an aged couple, walking hand and hand on a street, will surely make your heart melt.

5.Taking Special Efforts To Find That Perfect Gift

7.The Excitement Before Planning The Day

Nothing matches the excitement one feels whilst planning V-Day. You feel anxious because you want to make sure your partners loves, what you give them.

It’s a day that you consciously overlook all the fights you have had in the past and forgive each other, making your relationship stronger than ever before.

If you’re single, you don’t have to take any efforts to please anybody or make sure that special one, likes what you gift them. All you got to do is, sit back and relax, guilt free.

12. Go Explore

You aren’t in a love-relationship or anything that’s close to it. So what? Go ahead, have your share of fun, meet more people, get to know them. You have the exclusive privilege to go tell multiple people that you love them, and get away with it.

13. Narcissism Encore

Love yourself. You cannot love anybody else, unless you love yourself enough. Pamper yourself, go shopping, do whatever you like and do it for yourself, do it because you like doing it.

14.Ka-Ching

HOW TO CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY IF YOU ARE SINGLE

Join us on :  facebook 16pinterest_icon_16x32Flora200o - Twittergplus-16x16

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate your heart’s capabilities. Romance is fine, but it isn’t the only way to make your heart expand or to create joy and contentment. There are lots of ways to feel and give love on Valentine’s Day, even if you are single.

single heart

Invite Your Loved Ones Over: Have the people you love over for dinner. Invite your club members, brothers and sisters, or best buddies over for a dinner or lunch. Make the evening a reminder of how lucky you feel to have these wonderful people in your life. Remind yourself that all kinds of love exist in the world.

Go Shopping, Solo: If you have been dying to buy something important that takes a lot of research and testing (a new TV, a watch, a bike) make this the day you accomplish your goal. It’s hard to feel bad about going solo when you are able to do things that make you happy — and remind you that you love life.

Perform a random act of kindness: Express your love for life by doing something unexpected and kind for someone else. Imagine a whole day of such small, heartfelt moments when you do something meaningful for someone who you hardly know or don’t know at all. You’ll feel ridiculously good afterwards.

Adopt a pet: If you have the emotional capacity to care and love an animal and a lifestyle that can support it, adoption will give you a great way to celebrate attachment. Granted, you can’t repeat this every year, however, a new pet could work wonders for you this February 14th. You could also help rehabilitate an abused or neglected shelter animal.

Love Yourself: Love the one closest to you, yourself! Girlfriends/Boyfriends, friends, and even family may come and go, but you will always have you. So don’t forget to spoil and treat yourself to something special. Indulge in a guilty pleasure with absolutely no apologies. Sing off-key to your favorite song. Make it a chocolate affair if you’d like to max yourself out on pure decadence for awhile. Curl up with a cup of coffee and that book you’ve been dying to read for the past few months. Lose yourself in a relaxing massage at the spa. Whatever your heart desires, be your own best Valentine.
