Flowers Help Relieve The Stress Of Filing Taxes With The Irs

By Wesley Berry

With the April 15th tax deadline looming, IRS employees are feeling the hustle and bustle of an increased workload while the rest of us are feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed out at the thought of filling out copious forms and making sure we haven't missed a single dollar of tax credits. But, let's face it, stress isn't healthy. It causes your blood pressure to rise and can lead to or aggravate a myriad of health related problems. To quickly and easily reduce your stress level, try a bright and beautiful bouquet or arrangement of flowers.

It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that flowers make people happy. If they didn't, they wouldn't be such a popular gift and Americans wouldn't spend so much time planting and caring for flower gardens. In fact, a recent study conducted by Rutgers University provided scientific proof that flowers bring immediate happiness that lasts a long time. In addition, the study showed that flowers help people to connect with one another. Dr. Jeanette M. Haviland-Jones, who directed the study, said of the study, "What's most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way."

Although tax time is a period when many of us are concerned about money, the good news is that a little-flower therapy can go a long way and it doesn't have to cost a lot. Your florist can help you pick out flowers that suit your aesthetic needs without breaking your budget. Simply tell your florist how much you're considering spending, the kinds of flowers you like, and your favorite colors. If you have a certain space within your home in mind for the flowers, tell your florist about it. Explain how much space you have and the color scheme of the room.

If you happen to have an accountant or IRS employee in your life, think about how a little flower-therapy could benefit them as well. This is a time of the year when those in the tax industry spend more time at the office than they do at home. A gift of flowers could brighten their day and make the office a happier place to be. Since tax season lasts for a while, make sure you choose flowers that will last, too. Talk to your florist about creating an arrangement using hardy flowers that require minimal care to stay fresh and beautiful for a long time.

This tax season, take a few minutes to take care of yourself and the people you love-put down the tax forms, pick up the phone, and order some flower therapy!
