As neurodivergent creatives, we often find ourselves overwhelmed with too much stuff both in our environment and in our minds. We may be overrun with office supplies, craft supplies, and/or miscellaneous things that support our hyperfixations or latest hyperfocus. The ADHD brain is especially prone to mental clutter, and when our environment is a mess it's even harder to quiet our thoughts. On our last guest call, Nadja Carghetti shared how you can use Marie Kondo's approach to tidy your brain!

Many people think you are either tidy or untidy, but the good news is that tidying is something you can learn! In Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, she shares how we can systematically tidy our space by getting rid of things that don't spark joy. Marie Kondo’s method of tidying can be applied to your mind as well as your stuff and help prioritize the things we spend our mental energy on.

On this episode of Embracing Intensity, we share our talk with Nadja Carghetti, former tidying coach and host of the Unleash Monday Podcast, on Tidying Up Your Brain, Marie Kondo Style!

In this episode:

  • Why people’s homes reflect their life.
  • Nadja's experience of being a multipotentialite and interested in many things.
  • How growing up messy in her tidy parents’ house led her to believe you were either tidy or untidy.
  • It took a long time to realize that tidying was something you could learn.
  • The systematic decluttering process that can help you clear your space and mind.
  • How learning the KonMari tidying method led to diving deeper into what brought her joy!
  • Finding yourself through the process of tidying.
  • Why tidying is considered a festival rather than a party.
  • The 5 categories of things and the best order to sort them.
  • Sorting through information overload to find the important bits.
