During this pandemic, all of us are feeling isolated in some way. If you're feeling down or lonely, putting up prints can be a great way to lift your spirits!
Adding artwork to your home, even if it’s just one new piece, can boost drive, focus, concentration, and self-esteem, as well as provide a sense of accomplishment.
Seeing meaningful things in your home will do wonders for you - it could be a picture of your dog, an image of your family, or a collection of snapshots from one of your favorite trips.
Did you know that according to the National Science Foundation, 80% of our thoughts are negative and 95% of those negative thoughts are repetitive?!
We are mostly influenced by a tendency to remember bad things, which is called “negativity bias.” Constantly dwelling on negativity can ruin anyone’s mood. Photos help shift your perspective and help you remember the things you are grateful for and all of the good times you’ve had.
You feel happier, more content, and more appreciative when you keep the good moments at the forefront of your mind.
If you’re having an argument with your partner over something small you’re more inclined to think of good times between the two of you and less likely to allow small problems to become the focus when you surround yourself with photos of loved ones and memorable times.
Make sure what you hang on your walls gives you a good emotional response. With all the negativity in the world, you want your living space to be a safe place that makes you feel happy and at peace.
They REDUCE STRESS
Leading UK behavioral psychologist Jo Hemmings says: "Taking the time to look back on our treasured memories can be truly beneficial for our wellbeing as it can help to evoke feelings of positivity and happiness. Because of this, and especially at times like this, we should take more time to appreciate and look back on them.”
THEY MAKE YOU LAUGH
We release endorphins through laughter when we see silly photos - this is our body’s natural stress reliever. Looking back at photos of our friends and families reduces the levels of stress caused by cortisol and adrenalin.
If meditating is not your thing, try going through old photos. This activity is known to be just as, or even more relaxing and revitalizing.
