Of all the things in life that contribute to an accumulation of stress, a cluttered home is the last thing that anyone would assume as being a major culprit for the stress that we endure in life. However, statistics demonstrate that the whole thought of being surrounded by excess clutter can make us feel anxious, depressed and sad. In fact, some researchers from the Princeton Neuroscience Institute initially published a series of results from a study that they conducted back in January of 2011, that demonstrated the effects that clutter has on the mind. What they concluded was that, multiple visual stimulus which is present in the skull’s visual field at the same time, essentially compete for representation. Essentially, it impairs the brain’s ability to concentrate as well as to process information.
