Simple Ways To Give Flowers To The People You Love Regularly


There are fewer experiences in the world better than connecting with another human being. Each of us carries an innate need to connect with others and compelling evidence suggests strong relationships contribute to a long, healthy, and happy life. As we know, it is easy to let life and other pursuits get in the way of appreciating the special people in our life. It is also not always possible to exert many resources towards the people we love to let them know how much they mean to us. However, there are simple things you can do to make sure the people you love feel seen, heard, and known at no cost to you regularly. And in this article, I will be sharing those things with you.

Here are a few simple, easy ways you can show appreciation and give flowers to the people you love regularly.


Be Present When You are With Them.


When you are with someone you care about, a simple way to show them you appreciate them is to be fully present. Offer them your complete and undivided attention. No cell phones, no other conversations pulling your attention away, no work. Just them. Nothing else exists in the world. Make them feel as treasured as they are to you, and like when you are with them, there is nowhere else you would rather be.

Actively Listen to Them.


Of course, you are not always available to talk and connect with people you care about due to work, school, life, etc. However, when you are available, make sure you take care to listen to them. Listen to what has been going on in their life, what has been frustrating and exciting them lately, nodding, offering eye contact, and summarizing to let them know you are following along. Listening may seem like a small thing to do, but it is a big way to make the people you care about feel heard and like their voice matters.

Let Them Know You Value Their Role in Your Life


Eulogies are great. They allow you to say beautiful words about the person you loved and the impact they have had on your life. But eulogies deserve to be heard in life instead of after. Try not to wait till someone passes on to give them their flowers. Let them know how much they mean to you while they are still here.
