Stress and Anxiety : With some simple solutions in home design, you can increase joy. When we feel good, we can take action to best serve our lives.

Let the sun come in

The absorption of sunlight by the body is effective in reducing stress and anxiety.

In other words, vitamin D is absorbed through the sun’s stress-reducing hormones such as:

  •  Endorphins
  • And serotoni

Which will reduce stress and anxiety in people.

Maximum sunlight reception time

On the other hand, it is also important to maximize the hours of getting sunlight.

If you are careful,

in the spring and summer, when the sun is more used, people feel more relaxed and joyful.

The researchers even said that it would be artificial to design it if there was no natural sunlight in the design of the house.

Combining several types of lights to create a warm environment,

such as low lights, ceiling lights and desk lights.

But remember :

your bedroom does not need much light like a living room and kitchen,

Because these rooms are the place where you spend the most time in your life.

While the bedroom is for sleeping.

In the morning, when awakening, if the home decoration is designed to give you enough light,

It will lead to:

Reduces the production of melatonin hormone. (Melatonin is a hormone that helps you sleep so you can get upset immediately after you wake up).

Choose the color of the environment according to your mood

Creativity with color at home can be a great (and inexpensive) way to keep the mind fresh.

In the bedroom, people who are depressed should use at least 20% of their favorite colors for decoration.
