Clutter can effect our productivity, both at work and at home. Have you ever had to stop in the middle of task to go hunting for that thing you need? A messy space makes it hard to stay organized and creates a mental and visual distraction.
But did you know it also plays a significant role in how we feel,even about ourselves? For many, a disorganized house or messy desk can cause anxiety, helplessness, and a sense of being overwhelmed. Here are just a few of the ways mayhem causes problems:
Excessive stimuli. Clutter overloads our senses with a jumble of input (too many things to see, touch, or even smell), forcing our minds to pay attention to details not related to the task at hand.
A moving target. Clutter creates uncertainty because we can never be sure how deep the pile really is or what it’s going to take to get to the bottom of it. This not-knowing can lead to frustration and anxiety.
