She recommends cleaning your room on a day when you have plenty of free time so you don’t end up feeling overwhelmed and stressed, and emphasizes the importance of convenience over appearance. The second tip is to keep all garbage in one place. This helps to conserve your energy while cleaning.

If you’re ready to prioritize your well-being and want to manage your mental health, give this mental health hack a try!
