“The Psychology of Clutter”
“The Psychology of Clutter” is a fascinating article in the current issue of Getting Organized magazine. The article talks about the sizable increase in our homes over the past 30 years, the growth of self storage units and the trend that’s driving it all: we’re simply purchasing more and discarding less.
The writer suggests that behind all the clutter and disorganization in our lives is a sense of insecurity – we buy things to suppress the uncomfortable feeling we get from not having what everyone else seems to have. As things pile up, we become more disorganized and less productive. The article says that we can free up energy currently being wasted on stuff that’s in the way, out of place, and not needed.
And who couldn’t use more energy?! The writer concludes that clearing our environment of clutter and sorting through the accumulated mess around us will help us attain a healthier lifestyle.
