7 Reasons Your House is Making You Cranky




According to Yahoo, here are 7 REASONS YOUR HOUSE IS MAKING YOU CRANKY:


1. There's not a potted plant in sight. Bright green leaves breathe life (literally) into your home -- houseplants can purify the air indoors, which can be five times more polluted that outdoor air, reports the EPA. Plus, studies have shown that plopping one in a bare spot can help reduce stress.

2. Your only light source is in the ceiling. If you rely on recessed pot lights (especially in your kitchen), you might not realize you're still living in the dark. Pot lights don't allow the full amount of brightness to shine from the bulb, so vertical surfaces don't get sufficiently lit. Task lights (like table lamps or under-the-counter lighting) help you actually see what you're doing, and create a truly bright, happy space.

3. The focal point of your bedroom is the TV. Zoning out in front of the flourscent screen before bed might hamper your ability to drift off to sleep. Plus, one study found that couples who have a television in their room have sex half as often as couples who don't.
