CHECK OUT SOME NEW IDEAS AND TIPS ON DEPRESSION HIDING IN YOUR HOME:
MY STORY OF FINDING THE DEPRESSION HIDING IN MY HOME AND HOW I MADE IT LEAVE:
I started to notice my home was making me feel depressed. The walls were white, the floors were beige, and there was no natural light coming through. There wasn’t enough color. Walking in from a long hot day, I noticed my home was drab and colorless.
I knew I needed to make some changes, so I started by adding color to the walls. If your renting like me stick on wallpaper is a perfect idea for adding some personality to your walls. I added some plants and flowers, and bought some colorful wallpaper to give the walls some personality. Once I finished the walls I added some artwork for pops of color.
Now my home is bright and cheerful, and it makes me happy everytime I walk in the door.
When you’re able to identify what is making you feel a certain way and tackle it first hand is the first step to feeling better. Using your mind and home is a good way to start a journey of feeling better.
For instance, a study published in the journal, Mindfulness, found that people who were mindful when washing dishes—in other words they took the time to smell the soap and to take in the experience—reported a 27% reduction in nervousness, along with a 25% improvement in “mental inspiration.” What’s more, studies have found that having clean sheets and making your bed are associated with a better night’s rest. And, when you get more rest, that provides a whole host of mental health benefits including an improved mood.https://www.verywellmind.com/how-mental-health-and-cleaning-are-connected-5097496
