I was hanging out in my room today, browsing the web, and I though back to last summer, when I redid my room and it was organized and just really pleasant to be in. In contrast, as of this morning my room sported piles of clothes on the floor, stacks of paper everywhere, and loads of knickknacks and garbage on every available surface.
I spent a little under an hour throwing things out or just moving objects to where they should be. My room looks a whole lot better now, and I feel a lot better when I’m in it. There’s a lot of research (which I’m too lazy to find) that posits that your environment plays a large role in your mood, and I would totally agree.
