Deco and Design
After being temporarily homeless in 2011, Sarah Eby, an American, began to accumulate objects so she never had the feeling of owning anything. "When I moved to my apartment, it was very empty," the mother of a child, originally from Arvada Colorado, told AFP. "I bought everything I could to make myself feel at home."
But after moving several times, the mess began to reign. Today, inspired by the Japanese guru of the organization Marie Kondo, the 27-year-old woman claims to have banished the chaos of her life forever.
Marie Kondo's book, "The Magic of Storing," has been a cult since its publication in the United States in 2014. Millions of people have taken their advice to lead a more orderly … and happier life.
But in fact is the new show on Netflix this thirty, titled in French "The Art of Storage", which caused sensation.
The idea is simple: consider each object one by one, keep only those who "bring joy" and give them a place at home. At the end of the process, followers find themselves with much less property in their possession.
Almost overnight, Marie Kondo has become a cultural icon. Supporting the nascent Kondo-mania theory, a 2016 study also concluded that much bazaar was bad for the sense of well-being.
"It's the opposite of what people can think," says Joseph Ferrari, a professor of psychology at DePaul University in Chicago and co-author of the study. "They think you need to have more things and that people who live in abundance are happier there.
