There’s no denying tidying up can feel great. But is it life-changing? Marie Kondo thinks so. In creating the KonMari Method, renowned tidying expert Marie Kondo turned her lifelong love of organising into a tidying-up empire, encouraging people around the world to declutter their homes to find serenity and inspiration.
Thanks to her #1 New York Times bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo is now a household name – and one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people. So, how does it all work? In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what the KonMari Method is, and how employing it in your bedroom might help you enjoy better quality sleep.
WHAT IS THE KONMARI METHOD?
According to Marie Kondo, if you simplify and organise your home once, you will never have to do it again. Instead of taking a more traditional approach to tidying, which usually means taking it room-by-room, moving clutter from one space to another, the KonMari method encourages tidying by category – not by location.
Beginning with clothes, you then move on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and last of all, sentimental items. Using this method, you progress through all your belongings, keeping only items that are important to you, and discarding those that no longer spark joy.
CREATING THE PERFECT SLEEP ENVIRONMENT
In applying the KonMari Method to your home, you create a living space that encourages serenity in your life. One place you may feel needs a touch of serenity more than any other is your bedroom. While we all may long for a minimalist bedroom that is a haven from the stresses of everyday life, that’s not always how it turns out.
If you’re in need of a bedroom declutter, you could try the KonMari Method to find out how to clean your room more effectively, providing you with just the bedroom cleaning checklist you need to get the job done.
As we discussed in our post about How To Create a Feng Shui Bedroom, creating the perfect environment for sleep is essential to sleep quality. Creating a Feng Shui bedroom means looking at the layout and colours used in the room, employing balance while reducing distractions.
While distractions can certainly include technology, such as smartphones and televisions, they can also include clutter. By employing the KonMari Method you can reduce clutter in your bedroom to create a sleep-friendly space. Combine that with a dark environment that is just on the right side of chilly, and you vastly improve your chances of enjoying a good night’s sleep.
INVEST IN QUALITY BEDDING
Past decluttering, if you’re looking into how to improve sleep quality, quality bedding is ever-important. When you have the right bed, the right mattress and the right pillows, the idea of going to bed becomes so much more appealing.
Choosing TEMPUR, you can find your perfect fit, with the mattress and bed that offer the support you need – and the comfort you desire. With Marie Kondo by your side – and the perfect bedding in your corner – your bedroom could become the sleep space you’ve always imagined, helping you enjoy better quality sleep, night after night.
