There seems to be a connection, directly or indirectly, between mental clarity and environmental order.
When a room is in disarray, mental clarity becomes fogged, uncertain. Even depression results. Productivity in thought and deed becomes slowed or non-existent.
A place for everything and everything in it’s place. This saying is evidently accurate. Order creates order. Disorder creates disorder. It is as simple as that.
People try to make things more complex than they are. Perhaps it is because they expect something to be complex and when it isn’t their mind goes to work overtime to make it so.
It is so true that the simplest answer usually turns out to be the best and most accurate.
