Stop Scoffing At People Who Decorate For Christmas Early, Because Science Says It Will Actually Make You Happier

Finally, on a more physical level, decorating for the holidays disrupts our normal routine and creates a sort of neurological shift. In turn, our senses are stimulated, and dopamine is released.

It also helps that Christmas decorations are highly stimulating or festive. The bright, twinkly lights are believed to mimic chromotherapy– or color therapy– which can increase people’s energy levels and happiness.

So, instead of scoffing at people who have already broken out their decor, you might want to grab your own wreaths and stockings and get to decorating. After all, the holiday spirit could give your mental health a serious boost.
