The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – Marie KondoReading Time: 2 minutes
The Japanese life coach’s best-seller has hit bookshelves in France. Her method for transforming a cluttered house into a haven of beauty and peace is simple but effective. The first step is to visualise your ideal space. Then focus your effort on a special event: a big sort-out to get rid of the things you don’t need.
One handy tip is that it’s better to sort your stuff by object categories rather than item by item. For the sentimental among you, finish the tidying process with possessions of particular personal significance: is it worth keeping souvenirs of events you would have forgotten were it not for those objects?
Once you’ve finished your super sort-out, you now have a healthy foundation on which to organise your space properly and enjoy the benefits of the reorganisation and its impact on your life. If you believe the expert, tidying can change the way you think and the way you look at life. So, open those cupboards!
Who is Marie KONDO ?
A Japanese consultant in tidying, Marie KONDO is the author of the KonMari method, an innovative approach to storage that aims to combine tidying and personal development. The KonMari method makes it possible to maintain an orderly interior. The objective? To promote, for the people who use this method, relaxation and mental appeasement resulting from the very act of arranging and tidying.
Many people have already adopted it as a way of life, including celebrities and public figures. Marie Kondo began with the assumption that tidying is not innate but that it must be learned. In reality, children do not learn how to tidy, which can be a source of frustration when they reach adulthood when it becomes difficult to be organised! It is important to remember that, for psychologists, tidying is natural defensive behaviour for anxiety and helplessness.
