Lighting, A Modern Chair & A Good Book Is All You Need To Spend The Quarantine

Quarantine driving you crazy? To be honest, at some point I was giving up and starting to get depressed, or maybe not depressed, but I was definitely having more anxiety than before the quarantine. I didn’t know what to do at the time until various suggestions from different people faithfully recommended spending time reading.

Reading offers a multitude of benefits, in fact, according to healthline one of the main ones are:

  • Lowers blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Combat the symptoms of depression.
  • It prevents cognitive decline as you age.

So that’s what I did, I started taking time to read books of different genres and I created a kind of reading corner, like? Taking my Florence Knoll armchair that is upholstered in leather and has these thick and comfortable cushions to support you for hours and hours without feeling uncomfortable, a beautiful arc lamp that combines with the aesthetics of the Florence Knoll armchair and its steel details; and my last but least element for my reading corner was my collection of books by Edgar Allan Poe.

I spent a week as a test and the changes are incredible, my anxiety decreased and my mood improved thanks to this small but significant tip.
