Typically, when we’re talking about clutter, we’re talking about household clutter. But from the Psychologist’s chair, “mental clutter” is the demon. It leads to stress and anxiety and needs to be worked through.
Many different factors create stress and anxiety. But just like our computers that need decluttering, so too do our minds. Todays’ programmers have advanced our computers, and nowadays, they defrag and scan to resolve the trouble in the way data has been encoded automatically. Our brains, and more specifically, our minds, do not automatically edit and re-organize themselves.
Talking with a trained professional psychologist about the difficulties and challenges we routinely face can have the effect of editing and resolving how our data or experiences have been encoded.
