Folks across the country are throwing away things that "no longer spark joy", thanks to Marie Kondo's popular Netflix series. The trend has been benefitting charity organizations across the country- and it's also helping our mental health!

In comparison, people who don't regularly clear up their homes are more likely to have issues sleeping and were found to have higher levels of stress hormones in their body.
