How Clearing Clutter Can Help You Slim Down
It makes perfect sense that clearing clutter from your home can help lower your stress levels. But according to a newly released book it may also give your weight loss efforts a boost.
"If you live in a cluttered environment, the research shows that your stress levels start to increase," said Peter Walsh, author of Lose Weight: The Six-Week Total-Life Slim Down, said in a recent episode of Good Morning America." As the stress level increases, the hormone level increases, the result of that is you start to overeat."
In the segment, Walsh helped one reader get started by cleaning out her refrigerator, pantry and closet. Getting rid of all the leftovers and less-than-healthy choices makes room for fresher, healthier choices in the kitchen. Removing all except the clothing that makes one feel great serves to inspire life changes that also make you look great. And a cleaner home in general not only reduces stress, but also leaves more time for other health-conscious activities like exercising and getting adequate rest.
One interviewee in the GMA segment credits the principals in Walsh's book with helping her achieve an impressive 50-pound weight loss.
"It's not magic. It's not voodoo," Walsh says. "It's about simple life changes and homechanges that will help you live a healthier life."
