Build a Positive Mood at Home

One of the hottest jobs in psychology right now is neuroarchitects. These professionals study the effects that your physical space has on your mood and emotions. It turns out that doing some fundamental things can leave you feeling much better about the world. The great news, according to neuroarchitects, is doing these things can not only improve your apartment life, but they enhance your life in general.

Choose the Right Chairs

According to Dr. Sally Augustin, the chairs that you sit in at home can affect the way that your brain works. She says that if you sit with an upright posture, then your mind functions quicker and you are more alert. Sitting on furniture that allows you to spread out encourages you to be flexible and more open to new ideas. If you want to be powerful, then sit on a tall chair. According to Augustin, people who sit on over-padded chairs are more open to negotiating with people who live with them.

Look for a Pretty View

When choosing apartments for rent in Simpsonville, SC, you may want to select those that have a beautiful view, like those found at Garden District Apartment Homes. According to psychologist Roger Ulrich, people who can see stunning views regularly are less likely to be sick, and they heal faster. Neuroscientist Irving Biederman of the University of Southern California says that a part of the brain called the parahippocampal cortex releases happy hormones, like those gotten from exercise, when our body sees something beautiful. According to Augustin, hardwood floors have a calming effect. Numerous studies suggest that people who are surrounded by natural light are happier, so you should consider using sheer curtains to let in as much light as possible.

Create a Comfortable Space

While many are opting to have their apartments staged, Augustin says that unless you work with the right stager, that you may be uncomfortable in your apartment. Instead, she suggests that you keep a journal of places where you feel comfortable. Then, try to recreate those spaces in your apartment. Surrounding yourself with things that you love allows you to feel more confident, and your mood becomes happier. According to NASA, bringing in houseplants can help you cleanse the air and be more comfortable in your apartment.
