Although you may not be Marie Kondo, CNN suggests that there may be a reason why cleaning up your personal space can feel good.
PhDs actually say that there could be a psychological upside.
Michael Tompkins, a licensed psychologist and co-director of the San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy, says that we live in an acquiring culture.
He explains, "Perhaps there are some of us, myself included, that long for the serenity that can come with less stuff."
Although cleaning up is not necessarily a fun task, Tompkins says that it can also "elevate us with an enormous sense of accomplishment once we're done."
Ellen Delap, a certified professional organizer, explains that the people that she's worked with have a new sense of hope.
She adds, "Right away, people see change in their environment...They feel their space is lighter."
