2019 Embracing The Konmari Method

N A M A S T E 

They say when your home is a mess, your life is a mess.  If things are starting to add up in your life, shouldn't your home reflect the changes as well?  On my recent Netflix and Chill escapades I stumbled upon Tidying Up With Marie Kondo. I love to watch shows associated with creativity including interior decorating, and thought hey since this is trending it must be a good watch.  The show truly changed my life... it opened my perspective to a whole new world.  A world where I would only allow myself to associate with things in my home that sparked joy.  It is a must watch for all those looking to improve their lives on every level.

 What is Spark Joy?

 In my personal opinion the way that Marie Kondo asks the participants who are tidying up their home to figure out what to keep and what to throw away are all based on an emotional foundation of sparking joy.  Sparking Joy is an emotional connection to an item that helps you realize the importance or lack of to the time in question.  Upon my own personal reorganization and tidying I used this method consistently to help me figure out what clothing to keep and what items to donate or throw away.  

 

Why I love the KonMari Method?

I love her method because she isn't the usual aggressive type that you are use to seeing when it comes to tidying up and cluttering.  She is the complete opposite who offers a gentle charismatic approach.  The KonMari Method encourages you to tidy up by category instead of taking a room by room approach.  She separates her categories into cleaning beginning with clothes, books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and, finally, sentimental items. Her mindful perspective of letting go and drawing on your inner strength to do so is refreshing.  

What are you holding onto?

When is the last time you cleaned out that chest of draws, or closet?  Is your lining cupboard or even at home office driving you crazy!  Maybe its a time to clean up and get organized.  The Art of letting go can be challenging but I assure you by embracing the KonMari Method it becomes and effortless mental process that allows you to rid your life of things we often hold onto that we shouldn't.
