The Doorway Effect
When you feel stressed at home or at work by a situation or by a rude remark threatening to derail your day, take a step through that doorway to the next room or even outside when possible. The "doorway effect" is like an instant antidote to the negative situation at hand.
Researchers explain that an entryway serves as an event boundary that separates episodes of activity and files them away.
I have to admit, I have stepped through doorways more than once in my life. Stepping into another room or outside helps in leaving the negativity behind and has a calming effect to help you find your inner peace.
This "doorway effect" makes the information harder to retrieve in the brain, ensuring you'll have a fresh start when you return to the original room.
