Clutter Cleansing: How Reducing Clutter in Life Makes People Happier
Clutter in any form can be a nuisance. Physical clutter around the house, in the car, and in the workplace make things less organized, inefficient, and look unprofessional. Mental clutter (being mentally preoccupied or stressed) makes people unfocused and distracted from what's right in front of them. It prevents people from being self-confident, having meaningful relationships, and being completely happy.
Reducing the amount of clutter in my life is a an everyday task. It's necessary to feel at peace at home, at work, and within oneself. Every time I put things away at home, in the car, or organizing paperwork around the office, I remind myself that it cleanses my life of clutter and the stress it may bring.
