Do This For Good Mental Health In 2019

You know the saying, “out with the old, in with the new?” At least part of that advice could be good for your mental health, possibly freeing you from stress and anxiety. According to Dr. Emma Wood, a licensed psychologist, decluttering is a great way to kick off the new year. She calls it a “mood-booster.” Woods says people can feel “stuck” when they come home to a messy house. She suggests tackling the bedroom first, as disorder in the room can disrupt a good night’s sleep. Decluttering doesn’t just have to be about physical things. Wood believes that people should also re-evaluate toxic relationships, revealing, “To declutter those spaces in our lives also opens up space for mental health and well-being.”
