De-cluttering your life
It's widely known that clutter and mess can really affect your mood. It makes you feel stressed, down and clutters your mind. In fact, it turns out that clutter has a profound affect on our self-esteem as well as our mood. CELF’s anthropologists, social scientists, and archaeologists have found that there is a strong link between high cortisol (the stress hormone) levels in female home owners and a high density of household objects.The more stuff, the more stress women feel. So ladies (and gentlemen), keep your house tidy and de-cluttered!
I've been feeling a bit down in the dumps recently, so I decided a way to make me feel better, would be to clean and de-clutter my room. I whacked the Madness greatest hits on my record player, and filled 2 black bin liners full of old clothes I didn't need, old make-up I didn't use or jewellery that had gone all rusty. I then cleaned my surfaces and made my bed, and you know what? It made me feel a 100 times better. So honestly, give it a try when you're next down, it really does help!
