If you have a messy room, you're probably also really tired. You can make up whatever excuses you want: you're too busy, it's just "clutter," or you'll get to it later, but your room is a mess and it's starting to affect your life.
Growing up, my room was a disaster zone, and I never understood why that was such a big deal. I could see everything I needed, I made a path to my door, and I kept my door shut. But now I'm starting to realize that a clean room may have been a better idea, and not just for the sake of getting rid of clutter.
A new study has found a link between messy rooms and sleeping issues, and when you read their evidence, it actually makes a lot of sense.
