What Impact Does the Environment Have on Us

Added: Monaco, Nov. 24, 2016, 10:47 a.m.

Feeling down or stressed? Since the earliest times, humans have needed to be sensitive to their surroundings to survive, which means that we have an innate awareness of our environment and seek out environments with certain qualities.

First of all, humans have a strong need for safety and security and look for those attributes in their environment. We also look for physical comfort, such as an environment with the right temperature. In addition, we seek an environment that is psychologically comfortable: for example, environments that are familiar, but offer the right amount of stimulus.

Try to provide an atmosphere that creates a positive customer experience and offers three important attributes: comfort, safety, and entertainment. These attributes are equally important in healthcare as well.

Below are just a few examples of how the environment can impact you.

  • The environment can facilitate or discourage interactions among people. For example, an inviting space with comfortable chairs and privacy can encourage a family to stay.
  • The environment can influence peoples' behavior and motivation to act. For example, a dingy corridor filled with extra house equipment will invite people to leave another item in the hall, whereas a clean corridor and adequate storage will encourage people to take the time to put the item away.
  • The environment can influence mood. For example, the results of several research studies reveal that rooms with bright light, both natural and artificial, can improve health outcomes such as depression, agitation, and sleep.
