Decorating early for Christmas can positively affect mood, study says

U.S. & World

(KRQE)- Many are already decorating for Christmas and experts suggest it could have a positive affect on your mood.

Health experts say when stress and anxieties hit, people want associations to things that make them happy. That’s why they say decorating for the holiday can evoke strong feelings of childhood happiness and can be a link to a person’s past and identity.

Florida psychotherapist Amy Morin explains that decorating for Christmas these feelings increases a person’s joy. One study suggests that Americans use holiday decorations to communicate their sociability and accessibility.

They also recommend doing it earlier before the hustle and bustle of the season kicks in.
