Clutter Affects Your Mental Health

May is National Mental Health Month.

Are you aware that clutter contributes to stress, which negatively impacts mental health? Living in clutter also intensifies feelings of depression and anxiety for many people.

Trying to fit too much work into too little time can affect your mental health, as well.

Here are some things you can do to reduce stress and improve your outlook:
 
  • Write things down so you don’t have to keep everything in your head. Use one notebook and one calendar so you know where all the information is. 
  • Spend five minutes putting things away at the end of the day so you can start with a clear head the following day. This works at home and at work. 
  • Commit to letting of something every day. Newspapers, junk mail and clothes that don’t fit are a great place to start.

Your overall health depends on the strength of your mental health. Do what you can to keep it resilient.
