Flower Power

Looking back now at our summertime trip to ACK, it feels like a completely alternate time and place. And though we’d love to return to those carefree days, even the simple beauty of the island’s flowers in photos is a happy break from scary headlines. 

It turns out that flowers are literally powerful—research (from none other than Harvard Medical School) shows that just having them in your home can enhance your sense of calm and compassion. And since we need those in droves right now, consider adding a bouquet to your supplies list as an essential luxury next time an outing becomes mission-critical.
