Book Review: "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up"

By John Pulliam - April 27 2018

As a painting company, we believe color can be a source of improved organization. A room or house with the right color creates much needed aesthetic order in a chaotic world. 

According to Isaac Eliaz, MD the benefits of being organized include but are not limited to: 1) Lower stress; 2) Heightened mental clarity and insight; 3) Greater compassion toward ourselves and others. 

Given the benefits it is worth asking, "how do I become more organized?" One New York Times Best Selling author Mari Kondo answers this in her book the life-changing magic of tidying up: the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing. 

In summary, Kondo recommends that you first take an inventory of everything  you own and ask, "does this spark joy?" If it doesn't, junk it.

Next, put everything that remains in a visible location. Gradually, put everything back. 

There is a lot more to Kondo's method but much of its power is in its simplicity. Step 1: toss everything you don't need. Step 2: organization what's left.
