You’re standing in front of your dorm room’s tiny closet, looking at its burgeoning contents, and all of a sudden it hits you: Something’s got to give. There isn’t space to put another hanger in there, your clothes are invading each other’s personal space in a major way, and everything is simply out of control. Put simply, it’s time for a change and it’s time for some reassessing. So you look in your closet at the items you already have and yikes, you see tons of clothes you haven’t worn all semester!

But out-of-sight doesn’t automatically mean out-of-mind. Symbolically, your closet represents what is hidden inside you, including your thinking. So if your closet is overstuffed with clothes, your mind is probably overloaded with thoughts!
