And physicians maintain that our physical health is strongly dependent upon our emotional health.

The Health Behind The

That's a good question and its better left answered by health professionals. Nevertheless, here's the gist of it.

We spend a significant amount of our time in our homes. We eat there, we sleep there, and we hang out there, and so on and so forth. Over time, our home environment begins to shape our moods.
