How our home design affects happiness and mental well-being
Making our homes our safe havens has become a mantra over the past year.
But, long before the time of the pandemic and years before we raised our drawbridges, an architect from Munster set out to create homes focused on the well-being of all who live within their walls.
Does where you hang your hat really have an impact on your state of mind?
âThere is an innate need to absorb the outside world for the sake of well-being when talking about home design in today’s world, and this is especially important when considering the time that we let’s move inside lately, âsays Angelo.
“It is this genetic connection that runs alongside our often unrealized state of mind – an example could be a nervous disposition in a dentist waiting room is often calmed by the exposed aquarium.”
âThink of it as putting yourself in the best position to deal with whatever life throws at you.
Angelo is also a yogi and advocate for positive mental health, which influences his designs so that spaces âbecome more than just a shell to live or work in, but an extension of people to growâ.
âAnalyzing the behavior of body and mind allows us to promote well-being and facilitate happiness; Essentially, we can focus on creating more connected and useful spaces.
âI think it’s about creating a family center,â says Angelo.
Certainly, said Angelo. âChildren are genetically programmed to explore the world around them, which is how they create an understanding of certain truths and concepts in the environment,â he says.
