The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

Netflix knew what it was doing featuring Marie Kondo’s series at the start of a new year. It’s the time most of us assess the past year and plan for the new one. For those who have read her book, you’re aware there is honor and respect and thankfulness brought to the process.

Second, determine what activities besides cooking and eating you do in the kitchen. Who manages mail there? Since the kitchen is for eating, then sorting and opening the mail and leaving stacks of paper increases the chance you’ll snack there while multi-tasking. Is there a healthier place to sort mail?

And thirdly, a chaotic kitchen leads to mindless eating. You’re standing and eating while talking on the phone or reading and you just gnawed through a sleeve of crackers without realizing it.

Clutter-free kitchen counters bring a sense of calm. You are more likely to be thoughtful about your eating, take a seat, take a plate and actually enjoy what you’re eating.

Don’t cheat yourself of the enjoyment of your food. Create a neat environment to slow you down and bring you joy! It’s the MarciaCraw :)) method to be well.

Happy New Year!


PS The MarciaCraw method doesn’t even you require that you clean out that kitchen junk drawer!
