I wonder if my boss will let me expense these?

I wonder if my boss will let me expense these?

I have a habit of buying a bouquet of flowers for my office whenever I go grocery shopping – a guilty pleasure. Today, I read research that makes me feel a little less guilty. Did you know that exposure to flowers can:

  • reduce anxiety, negativity and depression
  • promote creativity (a University of Exeter study noted a 45% increase!)
  • enhance innovative thinking
  • increase productivity

One study indicated that people feel happier and had more energy after looking at flowers first thing in the morning. Flowers may even have a positive impact on memory. If you have a green thumb, research suggests that growing your own plants increases the benefits,  improving health, well-being, and life satisfaction.

These benefits were noted in women and men, the young and the elderly.
