Throughout the book, the author often mentions that once her clients have implemented the KonMari method, they go on to improve their lives in other ways. In particular, she mentions clients who lost weight and clients who started pursuing their dream jobs.
As I read these anecdotes, they had the ring of truth, but it wasn't until after I was really in the throes of the KonMari method myself that I realized why:
The process of asking yourself "Does this spark joy?" is also a way of saying to yourself, I care about what brings me joy, what makes me happy matters, and *I* matter.Once you place value on what you care about, you'll naturally want to take care of yourself.
And that truly is life-changing.
