Psychiatrist Marian Rojas Estapé confirms the simple habit that the happiest people practice at home

The world doesn’t make things easy for us, it’s true. However, it’s also true that we have many tools that we can use to try to be a little happier every day. And when we talk about happiness, we mean specific moments of well-beingthose in which fears of the future and the most entrenched phobias disappear. These capsules of emotional pleasure are true happiness, and not what we often think.

For decades, experts and researchers around the world have devoted much of their time to identifying the Reasons that lead us towards positivism and those that drag us towards the negative, or that simply prevent us from moving forward. Among them, the work promoted by Harvard University stands out, but also the research of scientists and doctors such as the psychiatrist Marian Rojas Estapé, one of the most recognized experts, writers and communicators in recent years, and who is connecting the most with society.

A practical and close approach

In her books, lectures and interviews there is no intervention in which the psychiatrist does not give us one of her many thoughts about happiness and how to get a little closer to her.

In one of these media appearances, Estapé refers to one of the ways that we pave the way to emotional serenity, the one that calms anxiety about the future and minimizes fears and negative thoughts with roots in the past.

On this occasion, it points to the order at home as part of a strategy whose guidelines converge with a common objective, mental calm or serenity, something very similar to happiness.

order and happiness

According to the psychiatrist, disorder is a possible source of stress and a trigger of emotional distress. When our house is messy, it is more likely that we will take longer to find what we need, and that search, little by little, makes us nervous, speeds us up, makes us restless and can even generate stress. A stress that, although it is temporary, if we do not change our habits, we will be destined to experience it again and again. The result? Bad mood, pessimism, emotional discomfort… The good news is that We can implement certain very simple guidelineswhich will help us redirect this inclination.

Starting from the idea that order favors balance and emotional well-being, the author of Recover your mind, regain your lifeproposes some measures to remove visual noise that causes disorder and thus have a happier life. They are all based on the fact that things not being in their place, in general, takes away energy and concentration, which ultimately distances us from happiness.

Everything in its place

With the “excuse” of packing for the holidays, it might be a good idea to go through the clothes you have in your closet and, at the same time, the general order of the objects in your home. This general cleaning will help you to Identify those things that you have not used for a long time and that only take up space in your home. With those objects that are no longer part of your daily life, you can do a “clean-up”, taking them to a green recycling center, donating them, or you can also offer them to your family or friends.

When you have “freed” yourself from all those objects that no longer contributed anything to your life and that, in reality, only encouraged the emotional “noise” we were referring to, you will feel lighter, which will make you feel much better.

On the other hand, the psychiatrist suggests restore order from your home with the collaboration of other family members.

In addition to order at home, Marian Rojas recommends other easy habits to carry out and that with practice help increase the quality of life:

  • Exercise regularly. The general recommendation regarding physical activity is that established by the WHO, which advises doing about 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity. However, according to the psychiatrist, even in small doses, physical exercise releases endorphins and other chemicals that improve mood and strengthen neural connections.


  • Eat healthy. Basically, the most important thing is to avoid or reduce the consumption of processed foods and prioritize fresh and natural foods. In this way, we will be able to reduce inflammation and improve our well-being and quality of life.
  • Sleep enough. In fact, it is as important to sleep between 6 and 8 hours as recommended by experts, as enjoy a restful break. Rojas insists on the importance of going through all the phases of sleep for true physical and mental repair.
  • Be as positive as possible. Rojas stresses the importance of positive self-talk and avoid rumination and negative thoughts that drain mental energy.
