The environmental influence on emotions 

Where you live and how you view that area can heavily impact how you feel and approach life. For example, living in a beautfiul house with a expansive outdoor area might make someone feel more carefree and open,which can be compared to living in crowded city conditions with a poor standard of living and feeling down and suppressed. Our environments shape more than just our feelings, as emotions drive us to act, intereact with others, and may even dictate how our lives turn out in the end. This relationship between environment and emotions can be seen in the background of the book Jane Eyre, and will be the focus of this website and its analyses.
