Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic is still very much ongoing, causing people around the world to spend as much time at home as possible. Obviously, even though we stay indoors, we all find various activities to spend our time as productively as possible, but nevertheless, we must recognize that the level of anxiety increases more and more every day.

According to health experts, there are a lot of factors that can lead to serious physical and mental health problems, such as our interior design, and we have to do our best to combat them. Some recent statistics show that about 10 million Americans suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

That being said, the truth is that we can’t control what is going on in all the countries of the world and miraculously erase all the havoc created by the coronavirus pandemic, but instead, we can actually control what is happening inside our houses, right? By controlling your surroundings, you will be more likely to live a healthy life and improve your mental state as well.

According to psychologists, your interior design can have a great impact on your mental health, which can lead to its improvement, or on the contrary, to the aggravation of your overall well-being. For example, according to a recent experiment, subjects who had to stay in a cluttered room for a few days were more likely to become anxious, depressed and develop insomnia, than those who spent time in a tidy and clean room. Also, people who lived in a dark room (with dark curtains and walls) for a week were more stressed than those who stayed in neutral colored rooms.

So, now that you spend even more time indoors, you should try to make the most of your interior design and improve your mental health! Read on to find out more info!
