How Rearranging My Furniture Made Me Feel Happier

Wednesday, 4 October 2017

Last month I finally moved out of my parents house and into my flat in the big bad city of Glasgow. 

In the last few weeks, my flatmates and I have had plenty of ups and downs, and we've overcome hurdle after hurdle. Moving out has been a huge learning curve for me, and I feel like it's really opened up my eyes to the world around me. 

I chose to move into a furnished flat for ease. Since I don't drive, and I don't didn't own any furniture, it just made everything a little bit simpler. At least, I thought it would. What I didn't foresee was that the chest of drawers provided by the agency would be missing drawers, and that my walk in wardrobe (yes, I'm a second year business student and I have a walk in wardrobe omg) wouldn't have any form of light in it... and that's just the tip of the iceberg. 

Yesterday, the agency delivered a lovely new dresser and I just couldn't figure out where to put it, so it lived in a really awkward place in my room for a couple of hours... until at 1am I decided to completely rearrange my bedroom.

Seriously, my flatmates must have thought I was going mad.

But once I had shoved my bed across my room, moved my dressers, and set up my TV (most important task tbh), I felt so satisfied. 

There's just something about having my own stamp on my bedroom- the furniture may not be mine (or my choice), but it's arranged just the way I like it. Plus, I feel like there's so much more space in my already-huge room. Like, I'm pretty sure I could fit in another sofa and a reasonably sized dining table if I really wanted to... I don't, but if I did I definitely could.

I had some before/after photos, ngl. 

When I woke up this morning, I feel like I woke up with a fresh perspective. I felt ready for the day, and already at 2pm I've been so much more productive than I was yesterday.

It's weird to think that something as simple as changing which wall my bed was up against, could change my daily outlook and productivity. 

Good things happen when you rearrange.
