In every chaos, there is a cosmos. In the ever-busy world we live in, being disorganized can seem perfectly normal. However, the ability to declutter your space can lead to significant mental and physical benefits – from increased productivity to overall peace of mind. In this blog post, we'll explore some of these benefits and provide tips for achieving an organized lifestyle. 

Start The Conversation: It's Time to Declutter 

Welcome, goal crushers! If you've found that life seems to be getting in the way of crushing those bold goals, you're not alone. Sara Mayer, host of the Bold Goal Crusher podcast, invited declutter expert Caroline Thor to navigate this journey with us.  

Caroline, originally from the UK, has been living in Germany for over 18 years. She trained as a KonMari consultant in 2021, following a career as a teacher. Caroline is the founder of Clutter-free Ever After, an online group coaching program, and Clutter-free Collective, an online membership. This passionate woman has devoted her career to helping busy people like you and me create homes that support their ideal lifestyles, creating peace and calm in their everyday lives.  

A Declutter Journey into Calm 

As a mother to three kids, Caroline found herself incredibly stressed and overwhelmed. A Good Housekeeping magazine article about Marie Kondo and the KonMari method inspired her to order the book and begin her decluttering journey.  

Caroline realized the impact her cluttered home was having on her mental well-being – her stress levels decreased dramatically once she had a place for everything. This encouraged her to teach others about the KonMari method, showing them how they could break free from the vicious cycle of constant tidying.  

The Power of Decluttering  

Decluttering doesn't just lead to a neat and tidy home; it can lead to significant shifts in other areas of your life. Caroline's clients have found space to deal with other important life issues and make major life changes such as moving houses or changing careers. There is genuinely life-changing magic in tidying up, freeing up mental space, and reducing stress that can be utilized in other areas of your life. 

Caroline emphasizes that decluttering isn't a one-woman job - it should involve everyone in the home. Instilling tidying up as a fun, everyday task in the family dynamic is invaluable, teaching children life skills from a young age.  

The Joy in the Method 

The basic principle of KonMari is to keep items that spark joy in your life. It's not about living a minimalist lifestyle but rather reducing clutter to create a home environment that supports your ideal lifestyle.  

The method categorizes items, making it easier to decide what to keep and which to discard. By involving the whole family in the process, you're sure to create a home environment where everyone feels comfortable and knows where everything is stored. 

Decluttering your home can significantly impact how you feel, operate, and function in your daily life. It frees up mental and physical space, allowing you to live a more peaceful, calm life. 

Let's all make an effort to clear the clutter from our lives. Remember, you don't have to do it alone – include the whole family, make it fun, and watch the transformation unfold. Here's to living clutter-free forever!
