Making our well-being a priority is, by all means, the most important thing we can do. That’s, at least what Marie Kondo’s philosophy is all about and we have to say we don’t disagree with her. That feeling of joy and happiness is exactly what we are pursuing by tidying up each of our spaces. We’re trying to create an oasis of calm where we can get a little peace of mind. And with us, there are dozens of people that have shared their experiences online after they applied the knowledge of Marie Kondo when it comes to tidying up, organizing, and making your house as Zen as possible.

That’s why Enlighten wants to show you how some of them managed to make ordinary spaces into places that fill them with joy. Don’t miss the bonus at the end of the article that comes with a surprise for you!
