Queer Eye's Bobby Berk Discusses The Impact Your Home Has On Your Mental Health - Exclusive

Home is a place where you should be able to relax at the end of a long day — but if you aren't able to do this, it may be time to rethink the way you're living in your space. When it comes to what you surround yourself with in your home, it could be having a bigger impact on how you tackle the rest of your life than you may think. "A lot of times, people don't think about the little things around their home that can have a big effect on their mental health outside of their home," interior designer Bobby Berk shared during an exclusive interview with House Digest.

The "Queer Eye" star discusses this idea in his upcoming book "Right At Home: How Good Design is Good for the Mind." In it, he explains how there are simple changes you can make at home that can help set you up for success throughout the rest of your day.

For one, not making your bed each morning could be keeping you from achieving other goals in your life. "A lot of people are like, 'Why do I need to make my bed in the morning? I'm crawling back into it in the next three to 16 hours. What's the point?'" Berk said. "But senses of accomplishment release endorphins." This chemical reaction can completely alter your mindset entering into your workday.

A cluttered home can clutter your mind

There's a sense of accomplishment that comes with having a home that you admire. However, if you find yourself constantly waking up to an unkempt house you promised yourself you'd clean, this can clutter your mind and alter the way you feel about the design of your space — and even how you feel about yourself. "When you don't do that thing that you said you were going to do — when you don't make that bed — that's a small subconscious failure," Bobby Berk told House Digest.

While something as simple as making your bed may not seem like such a big deal, there's pride in seeing your space come together when it's all made up each morning. Completing the task can even give you a boost of confidence. "Mind you, it's a small, tiny little goal, but you accomplished a goal you set out to do, and that releases endorphins," Berk said.

And if you feel good about yourself first thing in the morning, you're much more likely to head out into the world in a new state of mind. "By the time you get to work, you feel like you can accomplish anything," Berk explained, "because you've already started out your day achieving a goal."

So the next time you're wondering if you should even bother making your bed, take the extra time to make your bedroom look its best before leaving the house. "Little things like that will help people to start thinking about how it affects their life," Berk said.
