Clutter and chaos subject us to distraction. Fumio Sasaki, author of “Goodbye Things!” claims that every single item in our home sends us silent messages and this is true!
The chandelier in the living room is a reminder that one of the light bulbs should have been replaced a long time ago, the soap in the bathroom reminds you that it will soon run out, and you will need to buy a new one, a new jacket tells you that now you need new shoes also…and so on. The more things you have, the more thoughts they generate.
Now imagine what happens if there are plenty of things that are randomly placed everywhere, the brain gets tired of this amount of data and “freezes”. It becomes unable to be focused on one task.Psychologists from Princeton University conducted a study
in which they showed various visual goals to volunteers, the results of this study were measured with special equipment. The study indicated that people who are surrounded by minimum observable noise are much more successful in concentrating, it also proved that visual noise makes people more distracted.
