I grew up hearing my grandmother saying that home was the best place in the world. Anyone disagree? Today I know this is not only a theory of my dear granny, but also proven by science. Our house conveys security, warmth and well-being, and it is precisely this feeling that makes us feel homesick when we are traveling. Science has proven that it is possible to make our home better and (why not?) even happier.
Paint a wall green or yellow
Yellow and green are colors that bring more feelings of happiness and well-being, according to a study by the University of Vrije in the Netherlands.
Make a floral arrangement
A long study, conducted by Rutgers University in New Jersey, demonstrated that having flowers at home brings a sensation of comfort and causes happiness.
Spread photos around the house
Try putting a picture frame with a beautiful picture of your family or a friend, next to your bed. Scientists at the University of Portsmouth, in England guarantee that this will make you happier. According to this research, looking at old photos of loved ones brings a feeling of happiness and comfort.
Make the bed
The site Hunch.com conducted a survey of 68,000 people, and found that 71% of people who make their bed in the morning say they are happy. But 62% of the group not keeping this habit consider themselves unhappy.
Always remember: less is more
According to a study by the University of California at Los Angeles, there is a link between high cortisol levels and stress in people living in homes with lots of decoration objects. This research shows that the more decorations and accessories you have in your home, the more likely you are to feel stressed. This is because the excessive amount of clutter leads to a lack of peace.
A minimalist home can bring the feeling of a calm and happy life. How about trying it out?
