The Psychological Benefits Of 'Kondoing' Your House
There is plenty to gain when we let go of all the clutter.
In her bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo offers insight into the Japanese art of tidying, or releasing ourselves from the clutter that threatens chaos. The how-to book has gained traction globally by helping people reform their own spaces -- physically and mentally. Scores of fans have posted photos of their reorganized drawers on social media and have even turned the author's name into a verb -- "Kondoed" -- to express the act of purging unnecessary belongings, theWall Street Journal reported.
The truth is, we can all glean a few lessons in well-being from Kondo's manifesto, whether we're cleaning our bedroom or negative energy out of our life. However, it can be a more daunting task than it sounds.
