National Clean Up Your Room Day

Today is National Clean Up Your Room Day!  A day parents love but kids hate.

There are two good reasons why you should have a clean room.

1.)  A clean room makes you happier.  According to a study in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletinwomen whose homes were described as cluttered and full of unfinished projects were depressed, tired, and stressed out.  Women with organized, clean homes say they sleep better.  They also describe their homes as restorative and restful.

2.)  Clean rooms lead to exercise.  A study in 2013 of nearly 1,000 people showed those with the cleanest were most likely to exercise!

Two good reasons for a clean room.  Now parents just have to convince their kids!
