New Year, New Tidy
It's that time of year when new resolutions clutter our mind with ideas of how to live a better, more organized lifestyle - an ideal lifestyle unique to you. But, the first clutter you should be concerned with this year is the one inside of your home. Through home organization and decluttering using the KonMari method can you learn to let go of the past, and start this new year with a clean state of mind.
The New Year marks a time of new beginnings, and KonMari tidying offers a great opportunity to reflect on what you own and to reconsider how you want to live your life. For example, do you want to spend less time finding clothing in your closet, or come home every day to a clean kitchen? Think about the different aspects of your home and how you wish to improve them.
Using the six rules of organizing in the KonMari Methods we can eliminate the root of our disorganization, and therefore step towards a better state of mind. Here are the six rules:
- Commit yourself to tidying up,
- Imagine your ideal lifestyle,
- Finish discarding first,
- Tidy by category, not by location,
- Follow the right order,
- Ask yourself if it sparks joy.
As a KonMari Consultant, my in-home tidying lessons can help you establish and identify the goals you have for your home to create the environment that sparks joy for you. With my guidance and support, we will work through each of the five home organizational categories and identify the items you truly love, while creating a customized tidying plan just for you. Here are the five categories:
- Komono (miscellaneous),
- Sentimental items.
By engaging with each of the five home organizational categories and the six rules of organization, structure and balance will infiltrate into your daily life. But it does not stop there, as you continue to use the method and organize your home, the practices you learned will help guide and organize aspects of your life outside of your home. KonMari is the one and only resolution you need this new year, as it teaches you a new way to live your life and promote a better lifestyle. It is a recipe for a clear conscious and decluttered mind - a resolution made to last longer than just this year.
