Marie Kondo is a Japanese author now known worldwide
After many years of personal research, Kondo created her own life-changing and long-lasting tidying method: the KonMari method.
More than tidying, the method truly and deeply changes the way we look at our possessions, at ourselves, and at our lives. It has the ability to profoundly change our habits and helps us understand who we are and how we want to live our lives.
More than a method, it is a lifestyle.
The concept of the KonMari method is easy.
It consists of keeping only objects that spark joy to us. The task is both easy and difficult at the same time. It is easy as there are specific steps to follow. It is difficult because it is a true inner journey. Doing a Home Detox is like having a conversation with one’s own self through our possessions.
It consists of doing an inventory of what we own and asking ourselves if their purpose has been served or if their role has yet to be fulfilled.
Once done, so many changes occur in our lives. Mostly because life is easier and we can focus on what truly matters to us.
