The absolute easiest way to change your mood

💡 Today’s tip: Change your lighting.

We all have those days when everything just feels dark. Here’s an easy way to literally lighten up. Nicole Herzog, who happens to be the senior office manager at Medium, knows: Change your lighting, and you’ll change your mood. Herzog has managed the lighting in offices, events, and beyond, and thus is uniquely aware of the way that, as she writes, “lighting is everything. I truly believe that a good or bad time is dependent on the lighting of the space.”

So light a candle, or turn on your favorite lamp, or invest in some mood lighting that makes your video calls glow like the rosy-fingered dawn. As Herzog notes, “When the lighting matches the need and desire, your body can fall into harmony.”
