Your surroundings have a significant influence on your mental health. Imagine the difference between living in a well-organized and orderly home and a messy and disorganized space. The first one makes you feel in control, safe, and calm while the second one makes you feel anxious, frustrated, and overwhelmed. That’s why you need to declutter.
There’s a reason why you feel stressed out when you’re in cluttered spaces. The human brain can only absorb and process so much information from the outside world. With so many smells, sounds, sights, and sensations that compete for your attention, it can be challenging for the brain to process all at once.
