In clutter terms, ‘normal’ is what we are used to, meaning that the pile of magazines that has been sitting on the floor since ages long past registers as ‘normal’. Our active attention does not worry too much about it, because we are still always looking out for what we perceive as ‘danger’. So you would think that ‘normal’ would keep us calm and relaxed, right? Sadly, it doesn’t. Our subconscious is still sitting in the corner waving its little red flag to draw our attention to something that isn’t quite right, but we either chose to ignore it, or simply are too busy with other things to recognise it. Either way, there is an underlying unease. And that unease is cumulative, because for every single situation where this applies, another little red flag starts another little doubt.
“If you have clutter in your real life, your tangible life, then it really adds to the emotional clutter in your mind.”
