How clutter affects you (and what you can do about it) | Crew | July 2013

On pain:

“Your brain views the loss of one of your valued possessions as the same as something that causes you physical pain.”

On tactility:

“[T]he longer you touch an object, the greater the value you assign to it.”

On stress:

“Similar to what multitasking does to your brain, physical clutter
overloads your senses, making you feel stressed, and impairs your
ability to think creatively.”

On digital overload:

“The overconsumption of digital stuff has the same effect on your brain as physical clutter.”

On the happy medium:

“Researchers have even found that certain people need a bit of a mess in their surroundings to feel inspired and get work done.”
