Less mental clutter
The cluttered home is not only feeling like a thorn in the eyes, but also it could be a huge mental stressor. When you have a cluttered space, there is no room for your mind to feel free. The visual clutter occupies a big part of your mind. Have you ever been in a situation that you are having a very big test the next day, but cannot focus until you clean your space first? This is a perfect example of correlation between visual and mental clutter.
The clutter is a huge source of stress. When you declutter, the burden of all that unfinished work, untidy space, long unfinished and overwhelming to do lists, the debt, expense and the cleaning process will be reduces. Thus the stress associated with them will be reduced too.
Less overstimulation of mind
Clutter can over stimulate our brains. Especially on kids, it can create lack of focus and attention due to having too many items in our space. The houses , the stores, the schools and our kids lives are packed with stuff. The less clutter, the more room for thinking and creating.
