If you are a Newyorker and dissatisfied with your apartment's size, you should see Bonnie Lucas.She is an artist by profession and she is living under 400 square feet apartment.She eats,sleeps and works inside.She has a loft bed to sleep.She has cooking stove and a bath tub too.

She loves her that tiny apartment (Nolita) because she thinks that Nolita has provided her all the opportunities to be an artist.She has to go to bed through a pile of her artworks scattered around.If she has to work , she simply lays a board over the tub and uses it as a table.She says that apartment influnced her to work small to ahaed.She takes it positively.

People have limited earnings and they can't afford high living cost .So, they are forced to manage in small quarters.

But therapist Jonathan Alpert says, living in tight rooms is not a healthy choice.It doesn't support mental health. Narrow and congested apartments always directly or indirectly realted with stress, tensions and so many mental problems.

According to Alpert,small space hugely impacts relationships.And later it may be accompanied with unhealthy living styles like drugs abusing and excess alcohol drinking.He admits that a number of couples are coming to him with the complaints of their relationships.
