Messy desk, creative mind

(Premium content) Premium content

Our environment has an impact on our state of mind - is a tidy or messy desk more conducive to creativity?


‘One of the great, but often unmentioned, causes of both happiness and misery is the quality of our environment.’ – Alain de Botton 

Author and coach Natalie Shell, who is currently working on a new book, How Changing Your Space Can Change Your Life, has observed how our creativity and emotions are continuously influenced by our surroundings. ‘We are people living in space, not a vacuum,’ she said.
