DALLAS - Spring cleaning can make your home look better. It can also improve your mental health.
Due to the popularity of the Netflix show "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo", many people have tried to organize their homes.
A current psychology study found a substantial link between procrastination and clutter problems in all age groups. The findings add to growing evidence that suggests clutter can negatively impact mental wellbeing, particularly among women.
De-cluttering can relieve some of those stress symptoms.
"The reason why you're sleeping better is because you're not concerned about the mess. It's not towering over you while you relax in bed. And those people who have additional stress symptoms turn to stress eating," said Rebecca Corona, the lead psychologist at Parkland Health.
De-cluttering can also catalyze further change when it comes to money, your job or relationships.
