Study: more clutter, more stress

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Do you ever feel like your life is filled with too much stress? If so, you may want to consider how much clutter you have in your home.

According to a UCLA study, clutter in typical American homes is at nearly epidemic proportions and, there is a direct connection between how much clutter you have, and how stressed you are. Researchers found the more items crammed on your refrigerator door, the more likely the rest of your home will also be cluttered. And, this includes your garage where most Americans are unable to even park their cars because it’s so crammed.

Thankfully, there are ways to buck this trend and lessen the stress in your life. Consider purging your home of unused and unneeded items, and donating them to charity. Not only will this help people in need but, experts say, it will allow your life to be much more stress-free!
