There’s lots of research out there about how the physical environment can impact people in many ways, for better or worse. We’ve all experienced it, whether we are someone that needs “peace and quiet” to concentrate, or need to have music playing in our earplugs while we work. Did you notice why people travel great lengths to see Christmas lights? Because it makes them happy and it’s fun. I walked into my chiropractor’s office to see the Christmas decorations up and it made me feel good (it’s one of the photos above). Feeling happy is why we went to great lengths to make sure we bought our house and why we spent time, energy, and money to make it “ours”. However, where do the majority of us spend most of our time? That’s, right…at work. What a great opportunity for companies and employees alike to think about how to create the physical environments that make people happy. The dot coms figured it out a long time ago. Happy people=great business results. So why don’t more places do this?
