There are few things we as humans can do to "clear our heads" and simplify our complex lives that are as simple as clutter removal.
Decluttering can mean simply clearing out the surface stuff of our living spaces, or can be as extensive as downsizing our entire lifestyles. Clutter can be mental, too.
Why Our Brains Thrive on Order and No Clutter
While it may sound like a pitch for "personal organizers" it is demonstrably true that our brains react to clutter and a disorganized environment.
In fact, according to none other than The New York Times, a study was done that supported this contention,
"The study, published in Current Psychology, found a substantial link between procrastination and clutter problems in all the age groups. Frustration with clutter tended to increase with age. Among older adults, clutter problems were also associated with life dissatisfaction.
The findings add to a growing body of evidence that clutter can negatively impact mental well-being, particularly among women. Clutter can also induce a physiological response, including increased levels of cortisol, a stress hormone."
And an article at Very Well Mind reported that a survey conducted by the National Association for Professional Organizers in 2015, it found that over a third of readers were overwhelmed by their clutter —and don’t know where to begin cleaning.
One more: a post at the Health Beat website of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center notes,
"A cluttered environment can influence decisions you make about your health, including saying “no” to unhealthy foods. A disorganized kitchen might not inspire healthy meals. And, if your stationary bike serves as a clothes rack or you can’t find your sneakers, you’re less likely to exercise."
Clutter, too, is usually associated with simply having too much stuff as much as it is with being disorganized or just "messy." And this is where decluttering and downsizing meet.
