Stop and Smell the Flowers

What is the most important thing we can do for our well-being? Stopping to smell the flowers. This simple act has a powerful impact. It helps us to be in the moment, finding the beauty in our daily life and bringing us joy. It is symbolic of the simple things and how important they are for our happiness. Remember to stop and smell the flowers every day.

This project by artists Gillie and Marc is here as a reminder for every day happiness. With their beloved hybrid characters Rabbitwoman and Dogman holding vases filled with beautiful flowers they hope this simple message will blossom in the hearts of as many people as possible.

Here are a few other tips for every day happiness:

  • Head outside to spend time in nature
  • Be kind to yourself and find time to rest
  • Open your heart and learn to share and love freely
  • Always be curious and never stop learning
  • Spend time with animals
  • Do some exercise
  • Remind yourself of all the wonderful things in your life

 We hope this has inspired you to find joy and love everywhere.
