Your home and work environment can:
- Influence your mood. For example, research studies reveal that rooms with bright light, both natural and artificial, can improve depression and anxiety.
- Impact your behavior and motivation to act. For example, a messy hall with shoes, bags, and other stuff may invite you to drop what you are carrying right there, whereas a clean entry and adequate storage will encourage you to take the time to put the item away.
- Facilitate or discourage interactions in your family and with guests. For example, an inviting space with comfortable chairs can encourage people to sit and chat.
- Create or reduce stress, which impacts not only your emotional, but also physical health, including your longevity!
