What Happens to Our Brains When Working in a Cluttered Environment
Studies have shown that a cluttered environment can lead to feelings of stress and disorganization, which can negatively impact our ability to focus and complete tasks. When our eyes are constantly bombarded with visual distractions, it can make it more difficult to find what we need, resulting in wasted time and increased likelihood of making mistakes.
Gmail’s interface can be a source of distraction with its ads, promotions, and social updates that can break your focus while working on emails.
To address this, we developed a simple and distraction-free view for Gmail that allows you to focus on your emails, prioritize them, and manage them without interruptions.
Simple Email View removes distractions like:
- Right hand side bar
- Social media updates
- Menu bar at the top of the screen
With just a few clicks, you can remove distractions and quickly clean up your inbox to achieve the coveted goal of “inbox zero.”

Benefits of Decluttering Your Screen
cloudHQ’s Simple Email View is a Gmail extension that aims to increase productivity by simplifying the layout of your inbox. It does this by removing some of the visual clutter that can make it difficult to focus on the task at hand. The extension removes the right-hand sidebar, which can contain ads, social media links and other distractions, and also hides the menu bar at the top of the screen. This makes it easier to focus on the content of the email, which can help you to process your messages more quickly and efficiently. It also allows you to organize your emails into groups or labels, so you can easily find the emails you need and keep them separate from the rest of your inbox. This helps you to stay organized and on top of your work.
