Cleaning up London

A tidy house, a tidy mind: How does mess and clutter actually affect your brain?


A tidy house, a tidy mind. Some think it’s just a saying for house cleaning services to attract more customers, but neuroscientists at Princeton University Neuroscience Institute have found evidence to suggest otherwise!

They found that the more clutter you are surrounded by, the less able you are to focus. With so many things going on in your environment, your brain finds it difficult to focus because there are several things competing for your attention all at once.

Therefore, evidence indicates that a tidy, organised and serene environment, both at work and at home, can have positive effects on your productivity levels in two ways. You can better focus on tasks at hand and you can then achieve more because there are fewer distractions around you.

Take a look at the two desks below, which one would you be more productive at?

The moral of the story remains to be that household cleaning should be considered more as a benefit rather than another chore to add to the never-ending ‘to-do’ list. An organised environment fosters an organised mind. We, at #TidyChoice, can help by allowing you to personally browse through and select fully vetted, experienced cleaners that you can trust in your own home. Ever since I hired a weekly cleaner for my flat in Marylebone I've found working from home that much more productive!
