Environment refers to your immediate physical, social and cultural surroundings. Your well-being can be deeply affected by the setting where you interact with others and live your life, and these conditions have huge influence over you and the way you develop as a person. Continuously stressful circumstances can cause ongoing anxiety, insomnia and depression, whether it be caused by social factors like conflict with friends, coworkers, family, a partner etc, or by the physical world around you like a cluttered, unsanitary and/or noisy home or work atmosphere. Positive environments help shape healthy individuals. Create a positive atmosphere for yourself and others around you by being warm, encouraging, showing gratitude, and being open minded and accepting.
