How Does Your Personal Environment Impact Your Wellbeing?

appealing room with lots of light

Your home and work environment can:

  1. Influence your mood.  For example, research studies reveal that rooms with bright light, both natural and artificial, can improve depression and anxiety.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Create or reduce stress, which impacts not only your emotional, but also physical health, including your longevity!
