'Keep only those things that speak to your heart'. - Marie Kondo
The KonMari Method®
'Look more closely at what is there'. - Marie Kondo
Marie Kondo is a Japanese tidying expert and the author of the bestseller 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up' (2011).
Marie Kondo has created a tidying method that is regarded as the most effective approach to decluttering . It is truly a life changing experience as it brings awareness to the way we relate to our possessions and provides insight in the patterns we have developed. It therefore profoundly changes our habits towards living the life we want.
The KonMari Method® appeals to so many of us for its simplicity, clarity and long-lasting results.
The method consists of gathering all your belongings, one category at a time, focusing on choosing and keeping only those items that spark joy and designating a home for everything. If belongings no longer spark joy to you, they are respectfully let go of.
The KonMari Method® has you address your relationship with your belongings and allows you to evaluate them by consciously considering its value in your life. An introspective, mindful and forward-looking process about choosing what you want to surround yourself with. Because what you surround yourself with defines your life.
The hours spent with you have been transformative!
Thank you for your help, education and empowerment to let me know it's ok to let go of things.
