Your clutter

There should be no difficulty in agreeing on the fact that it’s more easy to let your home get cluttered than it is to keep it clean. But, you will be amazed to know that a cluttered home can be a visual and psychic drain. It can make you feel tired and fatigued. According to a study conducted by Princeton University Neuroscience Institute, a messy, cluttered and unorganised environment has high risk of putting mental stress and exhaustion on the people living in it.

Colours on the walls

According to colour psychology, the colours you use to decorate your home can affect your emotional well-being. Colour is not just something that enhances the beauty of your house, but it also acts as a tool that can be leveraged to influence your emotions and behaviour. According to a survey, there is a correlation between the colour of your bedroom walls and your sleep. People with blue rooms are believed to be getting the best night’s sleep as compared with those who have different colours in their bedroom. Also, it is best to avoid purple in the bedroom as it can cut down nightly hours, making you fatigued in the morning.

Your television

Your television emits blue wavelengths that suppress production of a chemical called melatonin in the brain. This chemical is known to make you feel tired and helps you fall asleep. Lack of it can mean you are more likely to have shorter disrupted sleep, causing you to feel tired the next day.

Your coffee maker

Your coffee maker surely serves you the best way to start your mornings, but the same might be the reason for your lack of sleep. Caffeine, present in coffee, works as a stimulant that boosts energy. It may also, however, leave you feeling even more tired, especially if you are into drinking coffee after dinner. So, avoid those post-dinner mugs of coffee if you want to avoid sleep loss and fatigue.

Your lavender candle

The scent of essential oils including that of lavender triggers a soothing and relaxing feeling, but the same feeling can turn into fatigue. Psychologists at Wesleyan University observed that people who sniffed lavender extracts before going to bed slept nicely without much interruptions. However, the same scent can make you feel lazy or tired if it is sniffed early in the morning. Image Source: Getty
