According to “Psychology Today,” which activity associated with spring may result in decreased stress, improved mood and heightened creativity?
-Eating chocolate at Easter
-Camping during Spring Break
-Cycling during a spring rain
Answer: Spring, for many, signals a time to start decluttering, cleaning and organizing.
Answer: The traditional “spring cleaning,” according to “Psychology Today,” can help foster an improved mindset, decreased stress levels and an improved, heightened sense of creativity. Clutter is a distraction and can overwhelm the senses with excessive stimuli. Studies indicate that women are particularly vulnerable to chronic levels of increased stress hormones when they perceive their homes as messy and cluttered. An organized, clean environment encourages physical activity, healthy eating and improved moods. Source: PsychologyToday.com
