Need More Energy – Try Decluttering!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Did you know that clutter can impact greatly on your productivity, your focus and ultimately your energy?

A study from Princeton University’s Neuroscience Centre “Interactions of Top-Down and Bottom-Up Mechanisms cloningin Human Visual Cortex” found that:

“Multiple stimuli present in the visual field at the same time compete for neural representation by mutually suppressing their evoked activity throughout visual cortex, providing a neural correlate for the limited processing capacity of the visual system”

In other words, when your environment is cluttered, the chaos not only restricts your ability to focus, but also limits your brain’s ability to process information. Clutter makes you distracted and unable to process information as well as you do in an uncluttered, organized, and serene environment.

The clutter competes for your attention and wears down your mental resources Creating some clear space in your life, your desk, your room helps calm stress and decreases brain overload and ultimately will impact on your overall energy.

But by just incorporating four simple time saving techniques can have you getting on top of clutter in your world.

1. Schedule 10 minutes twice a day to tidy up

Just pick a cupboard/drawer/one space on your desk. Set an alarm on your phone to keep you focused and sticking to the time.. it is amazing what you can do when you know you only have 10 minutes!

2. Have a ‘spot’ for everything.

Your keys, the remote, your shoes. Train yourself to put those things in the same spot every day that helps cut down on stress – nothing adds to your stress levels when you can’t find the car keys… especially if you are running late already!

3. Schedule one Saturday or Sunday per month that is ‘clear out time’

Create a rotational weekend day once a month, to sort out the garage, the storage cupboard or your wardrobe. Be diligent in getting rid of things that you are ‘storing just in case’. Have three piles… one to keep, one to sell, one to donate. Be brutal – do you really need to hang on to those pants you bought five years ago… and that you ‘might’ fit back into…someday?

4. Create a Special Place just for you

Perhaps a comfortable chair overlooking the garden, a space in the living room or bedroom – some where you can feel a sense of peace – to allow time to focus on the peace and tranquility. More time out ultimately leads to more creativity and productivity!
