One of the easiest ways to find yourself overwhelmed is to be surrounded by clutter. Ah, that dreaded word that encompasses so much. If you find yourself incapable of focusing when surrounded by stuff you aren’t alone. In fact, a study by the Princeton University Neuroscience Institute found that, in layman’s terms, if your environment is full of clutter your ability to focus is restricted due to all the surrounding chaos.
