What Is The KonMari Method™?
Invented by Japanese tidying and organizing superstar and bestselling author Marie Kondo, the KonMari method is revolutionizing the way we think about our home spaces and environments we live in. Her #1 New York Times Bestseller The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up followed by Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on The Art of Organizing and Tidying Up have been taking the world by storm. With over 6 million copies sold worldwide and translated into 40 languages, this method is transforming people's lives, one space at a time. With her revolutionary step-by-step guide, Marie Kondo introduces her readers to the "Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing", leaving their lives and homes decluttered, organized and full of joy.
Declutter your Space
Using the KonMari Method, we declutter and organize by categories, each item at a time. By holding each item in your hands, you will ask yourself "Does this spark joy?" and only keep the ones that do. When discarding an item, we will practice gratitude and thank the item before letting it go. As a result, in a guilt-free matter, you will surround yourself with only things you love and discard everything that no longer sparks joy or serves you.
Because the KonMari Method follows a set of specific steps (we follow the order of the 5 KonMari item categories), it is easy to apply and sparks joy in the process. By applying the KonMari Method in your home, you are creating a transformative space “from the outside in”. There is no rebound when correctly using the KonMari Method, you declutter once and for all. This process is often referred to as “tidying festival”, because it is a celebration of the new you that we uncover by removing layer by layer of clutter. The KonMari Method allows you to re-evaluate which one of your belongings really spark joy and which ones only weigh you down and are ready to be let go. The KonMari Method also offers precise organizing advise and o techniques to perfectly and practically store your items post-declutter. Instead of spending time continuously tidying here and there, you will actually be able to enjoy your space and relax in a clutter-free and joy-sparking environment.
Your true self is hidden underneath all that clutter - let’s uncover it and reclaim your space and your life.
Declutter your Mind
The KonMari Method is so much more than “just organizing" your home space. It is a transformational approach that gives you the tools to declutter your mind!
Not all clutter is physical and it is not only our homes that are overflowing with unwanted items, but also our heads and minds. A mind full of “stuff” causes lack of mental space, low energy and lack of motivation. If you feel tired, it might be because you are carrying so much mental baggage on a daily basis that is weighing you down and is making you feel paralyzed.
KonMari not only teaches us how to determine if a specific item in our home sparks joy, it also enables us to determine what sparks joy in our lives! The principles of the Method can be applied to every aspect of your life - whether it be your daily activities, your work, the people you surround yourself with and the responsibilities you are taking on. Using the KonMari Method on a higher level allows you to start fresh, to re-define yourself and re-define your life. Create more headspace by removing mental. Create clarity about your path in life and your next steps by removing mental obstacles. Increase your energy on a daily basis by spending less time on the “stuff” that holds you back and use your newly gained space for things that makes you feel joyful. Life a happier life by shifting your mindset to one of gratitude. Learn how to set boundaries and gratefully let go of what no longer serves you.
Let’s remove mental obstacles, create much needed headspace and unlock your potential to create a life that truly sparks joy.
