Do you remember the last time you did something special just for yourself? You deserve to treat yourself with love. So this week, no more waiting on a man to buy you flowers or feeling like you aren’t worth it. We’re bringing fresh flowers home as an act of self care.

This week’s #bebetter52 challenge is to bring the splendor of summer into your home by adding fresh flowers. You don’t need to wait for someone to buy you a bouquet or for some fancy occasion. Fresh flowers liven up any room and add beauty to your home. Head outside and pick an arrangement of wildflowers or stop by the local flower store and spend a few extra dollars on yourself!

Fresh flowers act as a powerful mood booster and can increase creativity and energy. This pretty accent in your home will not only liven up your decor, but can also liven up your life. Bringing this bit of nature inside has been proven to reduce stress levels. Flowers are a go to gift for a reason. They have the unique ability to spread positivity, whether given to others or bought for yourself. 

Flowers are more than just beneficial for your mood at home; they’re good for your workspace, too! Studies have shown that surrounding ourselves with nature as we work boosts productivity. Simply having plants nearby can increase creative ideas by 15% in the workplace. As an added bonus, flowers and plants both help to clean the air in your space and make your work environment even better. 

Pro Tip: Bringing fresh lavender into your bedroom (and sniffing it before bed) will help you sleep better!
