People Who Put Up Christmas Decorations Early Are Happier

Do you put up Christmas decorations early? Science says it could make you happier!

If you’re someone who is already rocking around their Christmas tree (hands up), then we have some great news for you. Studies show that those who put their Christmas decorations up early are actually happier than those who wait until later.

Steve McKeown, Psychoanalyst, founder of MindFixers and owner of The McKeown Clinic, says that Christmas decorations evoke strong feelings of childhood memories that may make people happy and excited. 

"Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extend the excitement!"

Adulthood comes with a lot of stress, worry, anxiety, and responsibility. Putting up decorations sooner rather than later can lift your spirits by reminding you of the time before you had to pay bills and go to work.

It might sound cheesy, but it’s true!

So don’t let all those bah humbugs bring down your Christmas cheer. It’s never too early to start decorating – after all, getting festive sooner is good for the soul!
