Living space as part of mental health

article image placeholderUploaded by @studentlife
Good morning, everybody. It's once again a beautiful morning. It's like 60 degrees out here in Arcade in Humboldt County. Global warming is definitely taking into effect. But I'm not going to say I'm not enjoying the warm weather. Is it concerning? In the back of my mind a little. But I can enjoy the warm weather and still fight climate change. But anyways, this policy is not about climate change. So this morning I took a little bit of a mental health morning

Yeah, I agree. It is. So with all the demands that we have a student, it is so hard to find time for cleaning. And definitely I don't blame you because sometimes it's like it's not only that, I just don't have time to clean as much as I'd like, I'm just tired. So anyways, I just wanted to say good luck

Part of my favorite living space would have to be my living room, since I rearranged it around. It Jas really nice and it's cute and it's really nice when it's cleaned, but right now it's not. And I need to. But that's another side story. But I just wish I had a new recliner

I get so happy when I come back from work and I sit down just on the couch and I think about all the great things I have with me around the bed and everything because it's true. There are people with no beds with a lot of things that we usually as humans, we need. And it's a great feeling. Thank you for saying that, though

Oh, I'm so excited for you that you have, like, a sacred, like, serene, happy place to come back to at the end of the day. I love that. I think it's so important, you know, just for, like, overall happiness, to just have a space where you feel safe and happy. There's a lot to be said for not being too materialistic, but I think that possessions can be intrinsically valuable and make you happy

I love buying decoration for the little space that I have right now. I am growing my own plants. I bought pots, soiled, seeds and everything. And all the plants that I have with me right now, they can came from literally just a little seed

Hi, Jazz. I thought that you talked just a while ago, but I just found it on swell. And it's actually really funny because right now I moved back into my dorm and I'm currently in the process of just, like trying to make it like a good living space because in the past, I have not been big into room decor anything. I kind of just let my room be like, okay, the place I sleep in, it's just kind of like it

Living space plays a very important role for our mental health. If the living space is good and clean, our mental health is very much peace. So that's why great. Swell. Bye

I think it is a huge part of mental health!

Hi, I actually posted as well about this recently because I've just realized that being in College and having a little space to myself in my dorm that has three of us us living in it, my personal space has started to hold a lot more importance and significance in my life than it did before when I was living at home and since there's only a few quiet places you really get to work and have your peace and downtime when you're at College, I feel like having a nice clean space that provides a lot of good energy and all of that is so important and something I've really tried to prioritize this year
