I have been speaking with many clients lately about sensorial clutter. We see the piles of papers or the over crowding of furniture, but we often miss the clash of sounds, different lighting, and over crowding of shelves and wall space. Young children don’t miss these things. They unconsciously absorb it. They are not able to filter out clutter like adults can. We will all be taking a break from work in the next few days. I challenge you to take a few moments Friday to remove some sensorial clutter from your home.
I recently found this article about one teachers observations around simplifying her classrooms. She offers some inspirational imagery.
