Mayo Clinic researchers say a messy house could actually be bad for your well-being because clutter can cause your stress levels to rise which negatively impacts your physical and mental health. Yahoo News just published an article that cites multiple studies that show cluttered houses result in elevated levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. The high-stress levels can create some major issues including high blood pressure and heart disease.
