Personal Environment

When we hear the word “environment,” we generally think about the earth and the natural environment.  But the environment also exists at a more micro level that includes your home and workplace.  

As with the larger environment, health and safety is essential in these personal environments, as we discuss in Be Safe Wherever You Are.  But more than that, we also need to make our personal space a refuge, a place to truly escape stress and the consequences of stress. 

We need to create a healing environment.

Your house can:

  • Influence your mood
  • Impact your behavior
  • Facilitate family interaction
  • Reduce stress
