"Kondo" is referring to best-selling author and acclaimed tidying expert, Marie Kondo, who is dedicated to inspiring the world to choose joy with the KonMari Method™ by organizing our belongings, homes, and lives.
"The KonMari Method™ is a state of mind – and a way of life – that encourages cherishing the things that spark joy in one’s life. Belongings are acknowledged for their service – and thanked before being let go, should they no longer spark joy."
This method gained popularity in 2011 with the release of Marie Kondo's first book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up". Then, at the beginning of this year, Netflix launched a new series called, "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" which catapulted The KonMari Method™ into a new stratosphere.
"To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard those that have outlived their purpose." ~ Marie Kondo
People around the world are drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and optimistic.
And, this is why we can "Kondo" our minds.
Even when we've made big changes in our physical world, we can keep getting tripped up in our minds when we hold on to old brain clutter.
With our minds, we're talking about tidying up our headspace and letting go of the things that no longer spark joy, whether that's negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, self-sabotaging behavior, repeating patterns, "bad" habits, etc.
Today, I'm sharing 5 steps to do exactly that.
Using The KonMari Method™ to Kondo your mind:
Just like anything new or worth doing, this takes practice. Inevitably, we'll find ourselves in a negative headspace again, repeating thoughts or patterns that absolutely do not spark joy... and this is ok. After all, we're human.
When we "Kondo" our minds, we are simply creating awareness of what we're mentally ready to let go of. This gives us more tools in our FIERCE toolbox to have at the ready any time we need them.
Try it... you just might like what you find...
and my hope is that you find the spark of joy you seek.
