When it comes to treating ourselves with kindness, we often fall short. We give and give to others, but often forget about doing the same for ourselves. The notion of self-care has become a big buzzword in the wellness community in the last few years, and for good reason. When we treat ourselves kindly, we perform better in every other area of our lives. We at Campbell’s Flowers think giving yourself the gift of flowers—just as you would gift yourself a massage, a girls’ trip or a box of chocolates—is a great way to take care of yourself.
Flowers are energizing, clarifying and literally cleansing, helping oxygenate the air. They have been shown to have health benefits that range from boosting mental outlook to helping to lower blood pressure in hospitalized patients who have flowers or plants in their rooms. Aside from all of the data, buying flowers for yourself just feels like a treat, a wonderful indulgence, like getting a pedicure or having a really good lunch. There’s truly no accounting for the impact they have on well being; just take our yellow tulips, for instance.
Looking at these would make anyone feel happy, cheerful and loved. These are all things we want to feel, so why wouldn’t we give them to ourselves if possible? Tulips are also a welcome reminder of spring, putting you in mind of clear skies, sunny days and summer just around the corner. There’s no reason not to buy yourself the flowers you want.
