"New year, new me," right? January is a good time to start applying positive changes to your life, but remember that everyday can be Day 1. That means you can promise to let go of negativity and hit refersh on how you live at any given point, as long as you have the will to do so—so why not start today? Here's how to bring the good vibes in with these simple adjustments:
Step 1: Declutter offline
If you haven't found the time to read Marie Kondo's The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up or Spark Joy—we still highly advice that you still do, though—then you might prefer to watch the decluttering master in action instead. Tidying Up with Marie Kondo is an eight-episode series on Netflix that shows how the KonMari Method effectively help lives everywhere. Maybe you can pick up a few tricks you can apply in your tidying journey.
Step 2: Declutter online
KonMari can be applicable in a lot of things—even your digital life. How searchable are you online? And which pieces of personal information are floating in the weird recesses of the internet? Maybe it's time to retrace your steps and do a digital data detox by re-collecting details that could be readily accessible to just about anyone. Follow this eight-day digital detox kit that will guide you through the process.
Step 3: Keep things simple
After you've successfully employed the KonMari Method in your space (and your life), it's time to look to the Swedish for a lifestyle change. From the people who taught us hygge comes the lagom, which means living moderately in your "happy medium." You can apply this concept as a form of discipline to follow through your revived physical, emotional, and financial fitness plans. The point is not to deprive yourself of anything, but to appreciate what you have, to be practical of what you need, and to find that sweet spot in between both.
