In order to study the influence of flower arrangement on the emotions of psychology teachers, this experiment used the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and the Profile of Mood States (POMS) as psychological indicators to test the mental states of 48 subjects before and after the activity. There were 192 questionnaires collected. The results showed that the levels of psychology teachers’ state anxiety, negative emotions and total mood disorder decreased after the activity of flower arrangement, while the levels of positive emotions increased. The decline degrees of negative emotions were ranked as following: confusion and bewilderment > fatigue and idleness > depression and disappointment > tension and anxiety > anger and hostility > state anxiety. Among them, the degree of confusion and bewilderment decreased by 100%; the degree of fatigue and idleness decreased by 75.99%. There were highly significant differences. The degree of depression and disappointment decreased by 70.27%; there was a significant difference. The research shows that flower arranging activities can greatly alleviate the emotional pressures of psychology teachers.
