2. Open your Blinds - We all like our privacy but at times we can make a room feel small and dark by constantly leaving the blinds/curtains down. By allowing more light to come into your apartment it can improve your overall mood as sunlight provides us with Vitamin D. Another great option to consider would be switching out your light bulbs. There are full spectrum bulbs that actually mimic natual sunlight. It is a little on the pricey side but the benefits are amazing!
