In her latest podcast, Donnalynn Riley discusses the importance of purposely choosing joy in one’s life, including being aware of how one’s home looks like. Most people become too fixated on their internal state that they forget that emotions are influenced by their external environment as well.
Recent studies suggest that environmental psychology, or the interaction between people and the space they inhabit, directly influences brain chemistry. Scientists have found that the interplay between lighting, colors, acoustics and other living elements contributes to how a person feels. For instance, a cluttered environment or a home that is not well-lit can cause an individual to feel trapped and unsafe, contributing to a higher chance of a mental illness such as depression or anxiety.
The latest episode in “Finding Your Spark Again” talks about the various ways individuals can clean their homes to ensure better mental health. Most importantly, Donnalynn expresses the need to “find joy” by removing everything that is no longer serving a person’s higher good.
About Donnalynn Riley
Aside from her podcast series, Donnalynn is also the founder of the Joyous on Purpose Club, a mental health positivity community focused on building emotional resilience. The membership community guides people to choose joy every day.
Donnalynn says, “Most of us, if not all, thought of what our dream house would look like. A home where you have your favorite space where you feel safe, warm, and free. A home where you live in harmony with your family or the people you are with having the best spot of their own that they can’t wait to go home rest and recharge as much as you do. But what if you can’t have your dream house yet? Is it still possible to have a joy-filled home?”
