Interesting article: The Clutter-Depression Connection
The state of my home is an instant clue to how I’m feeling. If I’m in a pain flare or very depressed (and they’re usually linked), things go downhill quickly. We’ve decluttered a LOT in the last few years, and I feel lighter and more cheerful with every item and box that goes away. It’s far easier to maintain our home with less clutter and to find the things we really do enjoy.
