Marie Kondo has illuminated millions of lives with her NY Times best seller: “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”. This is the perfect time to adopt better habits and live a cleaner life. Marie, a Japanese cleaning consultant, has perfectly summed up how to simplify your life using the KonMari Method. This book has countless brilliant tips and quotes to inspire you whenever you feel that urge to do a solid Spring cleaning.
Marie’s tidying up method especially sparks magical transformations in these 3 areas of your life: your confidence, your past, and your quality of life. These aspects are very important to every individual. You are allowed to be proud of who you are, let go of the past, and live lighter.
“Your living space affects your body”
By tidying up this spring, you can:
1. Gain Confidence
“I want to help others who feel the way I once did, who lack self-confidence … to see how much support they receive from the space they live in and the things that surround them”
When you have confidence in your environment, you have confidence in yourself. Surround yourself with what you love! Your life as a whole; the clothes you wear, the house you live in, and the people in your life, should ALL give you confidence. Be proud of who you are in your home and carry that confidence with you everywhere you go.
2. Release Attachments to the past
“By handling each sentimental item & deciding what to discard, you process your past”
A huge lesson you can learn from tidying is learning what you can do without. Release everything that doesn’t bring you joy, and what are you left with? What really matters. Declutter to identify what’s truly precious in your life.
3. Create the life you deserve
“A power spot filled with pure energy”
By transforming your home, you are simultaneously transforming your entire life. Everyone deserves a fresh space to live and work in; this is your sacred place that holds your most treasured possessions. Create interiors that bring you joy as soon as you enter the room. Imagine your home and life as a blank canvas, that you can transform it into a masterpiece. It’s time to stop living in clutter.
If you find yourself constantly de-cluttering throughout the year, this is for you. Marie Kondo’s method gives every possession a place and promises that if done properly once, you’ll never have to do it again. Of course everyone is different and we all have specific needs for comfort, and that is why her method is so great! It can be applied to any lifestyle! As the Queen of Tidying herself says: “Your real life begins after putting your house in order”.
