Stress, Depression, And Clutter – What Is The Link And How Can Hypnotherapy Help?
Lots of people love to live in chaos and clutter. They claim that they know exactly where everything is and organising things will make it hard for them to find their things. But not all people can benefit from working and living in a cluttered environment. In fact, modern research has concluded that clutter in your home or work environment can have a negative effect on your mind and body.
What Is The Link Between Clutter, Stress, And Depression?
Students at the Princeton University Neuroscience Institute found that clutter can impair and limit your brain’s ability to stay focused and can make it harder for you to process information.
The UCLA’s Centre on Everyday Lives and Families also found that clutter can be linked to depression, low self-esteem, and high levels of stress.
These researchers also found that women are more affected by clutter than men. The cortisol levels of all people tend to be much higher when they dwell in a cluttered environment. These higher cortisol levels indicate higher levels of stress and anxiety. Women also had higher cortisol levels compared to men.
Women also feel that tidier homes make them feel more successful and create a happier family life.
Lots of people find it incredibly hard to stay organised despite all the benefits of functioning in a clean and clutter-free environment. This is mostly because the idea of letting go of belongings can be overwhelming. Another reason so many find it hard to stay organised is that they just are not naturally tidy.
