3 Ways Mindfulness Simplifies Life
"Three ways. Mindfulness simplifies life by Kathryn beard with simply fiercely dot com. A few years ago. I felt massively overwhelmed with life though nothing particularly overwhelming was going on I felt like there was something weighing me down the days seem to merge into each other nells going through the motions of my daily routine without even noticing what I was doing as I searched endlessly on the Internet for ways to make myself feel calmer I came across the likes of Marie Condo light by cocoa and Caroline Rector of unfair easy dot com. All to read these ladies has something in common. They spoke of how minimalism downsizing can greatly improve your life. Those never the type of person to hold onto sentimental stuff is clothes in my closet still at the tags on them because I told myself, I may wear them some day. I had moved around a few times in the previous years in only realized how much stuff I owned when it came time to pack everything up. Once I learned about minimalism I was convinced downsizing would be the answer to all of my problems after all maybe the clutter around me was weighing me down. I immediately started to declutter thing by pared down my belongings and embraced a capsule Wardrobe I dug twenty fifteen the year of less and I felt great about the way my stuff wasn't overwhelming me anymore. Of course, things didn't stay that way forever. There was a part of me that thought I still feel overwhelmed I was convinced that minimalism would make my life feel perfect because it was simple because they are rid of the stuff that didn't bring me joy. I thought instantly feel more joy. The naive. The situation was that I still had a lot of work to do on myself beyond the things I owned though my life looked calmer and clutter free on the outside I'll still overwhelmed and anxious on the inside don't get me wrong. There are so many benefits downsizing but there's also some inner work that needs to take place in order to appreciate. Will we have once we've simplified? Not sure of the exact moment when I learned about the concept of mindfulness. But as soon as I did it changed everything for me, mindfulness means living in the current moment without worrying about the future or the past. Once I understood this concept I recognized that the overwhelming worrying my life, the kind that can be routed by decluttering my stuff was caused because was living in the future. Over the years that I've been living more mindful lifestyle life has felt a little simpler because I know we all dream of simpler and calmer lives I'm sharing. Three ways that mindfulness has helped me live more simply on a deeper level. Mindfulness helps me identify priorities. Mindfulness helps me to clearly see what's important since Guinea started with mindfulness. My head space has become a lot clearer. Mindfulness has helped me to discern between actual problems and ones. They don't really need to worry about I've better identified was important to me because I can think more clearly without getting distracted by outside noise also become more mindful about what I let into mental and physical space have set clear boundaries on what I'm willing to spend time and money on. Mindfulness, helps me making better decisions. Longer feel so torn about whether I should do this or that I've been able to tune into my intuition know what feels right to me rather than going back and forth on decisions like should I buy this or Shatman that party of a better sense of who I am and what I stand for, which means it simpler to make decisions? Mindfulness helps me feel more content with what I already have. Mindfulness has helped me to leave behind the idea that I need new things all the time as someone who used to spend countless hours at the mall and online browsing. I know how exciting it can feel to buy new things. Of course, new things are exciting but have become a lot more content with what I already have in my life because mindfulness encourages me to live in the current moment I spend less time worrying about adding new things into my life and more time enjoying what I already have. If you've been struggling with overwhelming wondering why life doesn't feel quite as simple as you like it to be consider making mindfulness part of your routine living in the moment is a lot easier said than done, but it's definitely worth the effort.

"This is one day I am Sasha Ann Simons broadcasting from my home in Maryland less is more is a philosophy that we return to again and again over the past decade decluttering guru was like Marie Kondo have amplified this philosophy through books podcasts and hit Netflix series some are skeptical of the promise that if you just clean your house you too can find happiness but others live by it hello this is merry from Oklahoma City Hey this is rocky fort Collins Colorado and I recently have went through my house and de cluttered it's been very beneficial to me since January I have found enough stuff I've made almost nine hundred dollars off of one of the let go app where you put your stuff online and just let it go I just wanted to use which is now I've got about two dumpsters or it's out of my house I live in a three story townhouse here it's very freeing to get rid of all the stuff that we've had around us for twenty five years got it all be cluttered at the house never looks so better I love not having all that stuff around me to gather data just goes to show get out with the old and get in with the new I'm still cleaning I'm cleaning out I'm getting back to the basics thank you Mary and Robbie for leaving us those voicemails cleaning out is important and we definitely need help with it the department of energy says a quarter of Americans with two car garages can't park a car in them because they're full of stuff so here to help help us unpack the rise of modern middle it Millicent is America's de cluttering obsessive obsession is that Kyle Cheika author of the longing for less living with minimalism Kyle welcome and thanks for having me and paddy Morrissey in organizing and lifestyle consultant certified in the KonMari method which is Marie condo's decluttering philosophy Patty welcome thank you Kyle what is minimalism and what does it mean to be a minimalist let's start there I think it does mean different things to different people but I think specifically of the word minimalism itself comes from the specific art movement in the nineteen sixties that started in New York with all these different artists who are kind of adopting industrial materials and making really really simple artwork but I think over time the word has become associated with this lifestyle of living with less stuff and cleaning out your house and kind of living simply with this with this clean aesthetic so why are Americans so interested in the concept of de cluttering Kyle I think I mean through my book I wanted to figure out why minimalism became so popular and how it went from the art movement to this lifestyle and I think to me it's really about the rise of consumerism and how we have come to identify so strongly with the stuff that we own and in the end I think that's kind of disappointing yeah can just base our identities on our stuff and so it feels less meaningful and so we've kind of started out in the belief that that might fix our problems and we do have a lot of stuff as Americans we generally have more stuff now than past generations did bath made a comment on our Facebook page she said decluttering can certainly be refreshing but deciding to adopt a minimalist lifestyle is life changing your thoughts go I I think it can be life changing I think it's I wanted to talk about minimalism as a way of approaching the worlds and that kind of philosophy so I think it really does change your attitudes what's around you and hopefully it makes you reconsider what is meaningful to you and Mike what's a statically pleasurable or what's beautiful let's bring you into this what is the KonMari method and what are its guiding principles yeah the KonMari method is often confused with minimalism but it's really not in a static it's a comprehensive tidying process that's much more aligned with a mindfulness practice it's really at the heart of it about attunement so you go through all of the things that you own you ask yourself if they spark joy and that's about training you to feel that sense in your body the word mindfulness is really about heart centeredness and through repetition it's a very tedious process and intense you learn a lot about yourself you learn what brings you joy you learn to set boundaries with other people in your home and you learn to name emotions you learn to develop intuition so unlike minimalism which I view as more of an external aesthetic something that you're striving for that I can be universally understood from people looking at a minimalist space or static for example could Mari the web when you're done with it or what we call the click point ultimately a personal Doug got that answer comes from personal space so you talk about finding things that that bring you joy how do you know when something brings you joy yeah well we're pretty numb to it actually and what what adopting a minimalist practice or using something like the KonMari process is a way to interrupt that pattern of receiving messages from other people of what consumer culture has told us is important or what we need or what we should have or what we should strive to and so the feeling of spark joy is really inside the body so there is I I like to point out this study that was done they put people in a room alone with their own thoughts and they said you can just sit there and and think by yourself or you can chalk yourself like Tricity and more people chose the shock themselves so this time of going internal is very uncomfortable for people so so when I work with people trying to make it safe for them to just feel their feelings and recognize them so joy is that like bright brightness you're sitting back your shoulders are wide your face lights up often people feel it before they they know it in their mind so I encourage people who are alone doing this to stand in front of a mirror and watch other body's reacting to something more than what they're thinking about it interesting and and we'll be we'll be unpacking a bit more about what it takes to really you know get rid of your staff and and also the other side of things where when you just can't afford to have a lot of stuff week that's really important to bring into this discussion as well and Patty you know a listener texted us this might be sort of hinting at what you just said you know I got rid of lots of clothes they said and then realized I have a lot of books decluttering felt like I was resetting my brain well that's that's absolutely what's happening sometimes I'll call it closing a bunch of open files so the more things that we have sitting around they just represent unmade decisions what do I want to do it this how does it belong in my life so I really don't define clutter as something that I can see but something that's felt so in when I'm inside someone's home even when it looks minimalist I've been in that situation before the person as a walking me through their home will describe a heaviness a stockist and that's because they think that they're surrounded by no longer represent the life that they're moving into so even myself right I was pretty content with how I had my home set up but then everything changed immediately and now my home actually has to be more has to be a school space and a gym space and a prayer space and an exercise space so I've had to really re do a whole lot of of how I have things arranged in my home so that it so that it can serve the life that I have at this moment we're talking with paddy Morrissey she's an organizing and lifestyle consultants certified in the KonMari method and Kyle Cheika author of the longing for less living with minimalism Kyle do Americans actually want less or is the traditional American dream just less attainable right now I think it is a little less attainable I mean just speak when you see the millennial generation perspective I think the kind of material achievement like the material markers of adulthood and success seem less attainable to me until out of other people like I graduated right before the financial crisis but I haven't had a full time job maybe it's nine years and I think we we don't find so much achievement and like buying real estate or having the two car garage and owning a car I think there's a way in which like the suburban space some large homes have kind of encouraged consumers and encouraged you know piling up more stuff than perhaps you want to deal with in your life and at least in my experience like I I've never really had the opportunity to accumulate that much stuff in the first place so I certainly don't have as much to get rid of you've also been critical of de cluttering gurus like Marie Kondo what's what is it about her approach that you take issue with I mean I think with the book I mostly wanted to reconnect merry condo and the kind of American minimalism movement west's a history that gets lost quite a bit I think and it was just about about reminding people that minimalism comes from somewhere specifically it comes from this art movement in New York ands with my condo as well there's this long history of Japanese Buddhism and considering like the spirituality of objects and I think that kind of gets lost in the the blanket solution of sparking enjoy even though that looks different for different people American it was still said I think that you should have thirty Bucks maximum in your house which to me it is not quite enough penny what's your response to that Boenning and clarify that please M. is a total is admin it's definitely a myth around Marie Kondo I think just what she said was that it sparked joy for her personally to have thirty Bucks but knowing her personally it sheeps that that's been misquoted so what's your response to what Kyle was saying in general just about as well I mean and and Kyle I was checking out your stuff I think there's so much overlap and ultimately sometimes the is the NIT picking this around Marie Kondo in this movement I think it's it's unfortunate and that any any practice that encourages people to think critically around what they bring into their life what how much life energy they're willing to exchange for acquiring those things how they want to maintain their space and how they want to live their lives for people to be more conscious and mindful of that is off things to celebrate so what whether people walk through that threshold with a practice of de cluttering or subscribing to the minimalist movement or they're finding it through prayer or exercise or any other means it's it's something that we applied and then I applaud tweet here from John says I wonder if minimalism is partially responsible for the boom in the building of storage units out of sight out of mind we'll talk about that a little bit later when many of us think of minimalism we think of an empty mansion a sleek coffee shop or an all black wardrobe but what does minimalism look like when you're forced to live with less because of financial reasons we'll talk more about that when we return I'm such and Simon you're listening to one day from W. M. U. and NPR.
What We Inherit: Marie Kondo and the Security of Stuff
"Parents are preparing to remodel my childhood home. They want to add a room to the house. So that my mom's mom my paw-paw can stay with them. She's been in and out of the hospital and at ninety three. The family doesn't think she can live on her own anymore. The first and last time we remodeled our house was sixteen years ago. And I'm pretty sure that's the last time or house was D- cluttered at any in-depth way since then. My mom has made several attempts to clean the house. But it's never really worked now that my mom's busy taking care Paul. I thought I should fly home to help. Assess the situation okay. So this is the most this what we're looking at right now. Is the most thing that gives me the most headache when I come home. What are we looking at mom and are standing in the living room looking? Glass Window that spans. The back wall and overlooks an enclosed patio inside there are cardboard boxes plastic bins plants. An old fish tank and a bunch of other stuff large clear plastic sheets cover the boxes and another sheet for some reason is taped to the ceiling. How many would you say that? There's in patio. Oh some of the some empty boxes but how do you? Why did you because I don't have time to go? Charging the go on the cops can so they put it in here? Just get away from my side and it's also kind of an eyesore eyesore. I mean is is so I I would have WANNA clean up a couple of time. I tried to let them know is paper cannot just toss it. I had to look at by details a lot over the sweat a lot. Even when there's a task at hand like cleaning our house my mom always has to multitask. Since I'm only visiting California for short while I thought we would be able to spend the weekend decluttering instead. Mom had other plans money doing. I'm pure and the ginger could make some Sephora Papa and knife family. Whenever anyone sick we make soup. It's something that my papa always does. But since she sick herself it's my mom's job to make and deliver it to her. Which is why I guess. Mini cleaned up pasta sauce jars. That mom's saved over the years are finally coming in handy. Mom is the Middle Child. She's the third five she and three of her siblings emigrated from China to Hong Kong to Sacramento California with Paul when my mom was just eleven when I was growing up. That's all I really knew like a lot of other children of immigrants. I knew a lot about my mom's immigration story while also knowing nothing everything she told us was very matter of fact. Papa sacrificed a lot and worked in sweatshops. So you and your brother have to study hard. Mommy had to take care of her younger siblings. So you and your brother are lucky. You don't have those responsibilities. Are FAMILY HAD LITTLE MONEY. So we had to save everything. And even after my mom escaped the Clutch SA- poverty moved out of Papa's house and started a family of her own. She held tight to this rule. Anything that came into our house rarely left so we did toss something out. I mean not top. We put in a box and then we put it in the uncle Terry and he says garage okay so so you didn't technically throw away anything we when you were modeled. We was in a hurry so he everything that box. We originally remodeled the house. When I was ten I guess I was so young that I never realized what my mom's main cleaning technique was putting things in boxes and shoving them into my aunt and uncle's garaged. Okay what happened to the VOX? After year we moved to think that in so some of the box be opened up. Nba Use it and some of the box. Do in the in the patio thing. Yeah so can you. The patio is filled with boxes from our first remodel. But also things for my dad's parents my union and yeah from when they passed away many years ago aside from the patio. Our House as a whole is just so full of things even before we planned this newer model to add a room for Papa. My Dad and I had been trying desperately to help my mom. Clean her closet. We thought we could start small before tackling the whole house after Marie condos the life. Changing magic of tidying up was released and translated into English in two thousand fourteen. My Dad bought a copy for mom a Christmas present. Murray condos hopeful osophy is that if an object to spark join you. You should get rid of it. I thought that there was no way that all the things in my parents house could possibly spark that much joy. I was hopeful that reading this book with somehow enable both of my parents to turn into something worthy of hgtv show but simply put it. Hasn't okay well. So so dad bought you this book. The Mary Condo Book for Christmas copiers. We use did you. Did you read it? Sure did I did. Did you learn anything from it? You Go Clo- make it nicely and I love this. I kept it and I found out. I love a lot of close i. That's why we did make it like that but the problem is one. I had too many close to the way they set out after two. We have our mess up again. That the purpose of that is you have to keep it up every day. And I don't have time to do that. I don't but I don't have done it before. That's when they don't have like five pair of jeans ten pair you know or they have won. T shirt I had twenty one t shirt male one of my friends too gene. Naturally he could do it I have. I do have to go over my plant pans now. I have pobably thirty pair or more clearly. The MARIKANA book didn't drastically changed my mom's cleaning habits and because I live on the other side of the country for my parents. I can't be there to help clean every step of the way so I thought that having my mom watch Marie condos new Netflix. Show tidying up with. Murray condo would provide her with some tips aerial Bernstein a professor and journalist whose parents fled to Cuba then to the US refugees from Eastern Europe also thought that when she told her mother about the show You know we watched episode or two of the show together and then we went to try to do some of the Actual tightening and it's just really hard for her You know it's just very difficult to to think about getting rid of things You know my mom is living in the US now for for fifty years so it's not necessarily that she's not used to American culture. But I think that I think that just about legacy of having to to give things up almost sixteen when she came to the US. And I think that's for her. They're still idea that giving up something that's very integral unimportant. Throughout my mom childhood anything that could possibly get a second or third or tenth use did but I never really contended with the idea that this history this life of immigration impacted my own childhood as a kid I really resented how're cabinets overflowed with tupperware or how. We had an entire room in our house dedicated to storing stuff that I thought was junk photo albums. My Dad's records and broken record player kitchen gadgets. I was always embarrassed that we couldn't just get rid of things like other families. Why you think it's so hard for you with stuff like everything I buy like it. So that's why why would I taught away the thing that I you know. I like okay. Let's talk about some of the things that you allowed things. You have a lot of your tupperware though. Oh my mom has an obsession with tupperware. It's mildly unhealthy. When I was in elementary school she's to sell Tupperware to friends and coworkers but mostly to herself so she could get rewards points and get even more tupperware. Oh I love tougher billy. I do why because I don't know because I am over my end. Shoo Shoo Shoo introduced me to upper. Because you make a lot of cookie Dune a holiday and she put it inside a separate and she just eat it you know and give it to friend and so I think from there on I found out you know. That's good to use tupperware. This is the first time my mom has mentioned the story to me. Despite knowing tidbits about mom's immigration she never talked about her early life in California and any emotional sense. But it's something I've always wondered about. Why do you think that we have so much stuff? Because it'll be good furniture and those they last a long time and then Miko Shah Gobi. -CATION BE BY A souvenir and which I haven't done lately. Yeah Yeah but but all those good we cannot just toss it and you not quite sure what my mom means by good. No one in the house uses those things anymore but saying something is good has been excuse for not getting rid of a lot of our
Netflix's 'Love Is Blind' brings the reality dating show into 2020
"Netflix plan to take over television has extended to dating shows for a while. But perhaps they've never made one so weird so baffling at so cringe. Inducing Lee embarrassing for everyone involved as love is blind and you probably know someone who's watching it then what the show insists on calling an experiment. Couple sit in separate cells that they call pods where they can hear each other but not see each other and once they've had a conversation or two if they're getting along they get engaged and only then do they meet will any of them. Make it to the altar. I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes. We're talking about the NETFLIX series. Love is blind on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR joining me and Steven from NPR. West is one of our most treasured friends. Who the record should show. We did not force to watch. Love is blind Sam Sanders the host of. It's been a minute. Hello Sam I would. A page ought to be on this show. We should also point out that Y'All can't see me in her. We're trying to figure out whether we can possibly have a meaningful conversation county each other so before we get to deeply into it. The basic idea of this show is that you start with some men and some women they all sit and if you think of them as little tiny prison cells with furniture and painted walls they are separated by a wall that they can't see through but they can hear through so it's basically like having a conversation with someone in two adjoining phone booths. And so they talk to each other and then if they like each other enough to get engaged without ever having met or spoken to a non television based situation they move out of those pods and they go on vacation and live together and see if they really really want to get married they all have to have a wedding and go up to the altar. And then when you're up there you have to decide. Are you going to say yes? Are you going to say now? Dump you forever Steven. You're a viewer of trashy television. Way Back leaving. Some fairly trashy dating shows enough that I can peg this show as a combination of the bachelor married by America and Mr Personality hosted by Monica Lewinsky. Boy Cut. What did you think of this one? You know the first episodes I struggled a little bit. I found it very stressful. It's got some of that kind of falsely generated conflict. It's a dating show. I've kind of weaned myself off of the Bachelor Bachelorette for kind of ethical reasons as much as anything and getting back into a dating show. Took me a couple episodes. At which point I could not stop watching it. The instruction going in with Stephen. I know you're very busy right now. Even just watch three or four. I've watched all ten and burned through them. Basically in one sitting one of the things that makes this show. So Benjamin is that it's on Netflix. So there are among other things no commercials and no reason to break into the show and say begun. And then I'll come up the senior about to see and then you come out of commercials. Here's a recap of what you saw. Before the commercial break with the bachelor going back but he's Ryerson on streaming services edited versions of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette where they cut that crap out and then each episode will be like twenty six minutes long. So this doesn't have that but it's centered on this ludicrous false choice between getting married or never seeing each other again. Which is down like they're not allowed to subvert the show in any way they're not allowed to say like f you were dating. There's sort of forced to do one or the other and they. They all seem to buy into this experiment in a way. That is very silly but at the same time it is a weirdly intoxicating show that I ultimately enormously enjoyed even though it's very very stupid. Yeah I basically agree with that. Take Sam a hit me. What did you think? Oh Man so. There are two big reasons. I love this show one for what it says about net flix and to for what it says about what we normally do. And don't say about love one. This really shows that like in spite of trying to be the place for Prestige Film. Net flicks is actually really good at reality. Tv You'll recall. Cheer you'll recall tied in with Marie Condo more queer eye or nailed it or next and fashion or the glass blow reality show followed by the circle and now this. They're making really good addictive reality. Tv and that's for several reasons. You know some of Stephen pointed out. They don't have to commercial breaks thing. Let these stories flow and organic and then in many ways they are not overproducing this stuff when I compare What's going on with. Love is blind to like the bachelor. There seems to be less direct manipulation by the producers. They'll be plotlines in the bachelor of where the had the couple go to a country music concert but wait turns out the country. Music singer is one of their excess craziness. Ensues you see the last of that with the blind makes it feel more earnest. Even though still fake I know I know right at the very least. They're better at hiding it. It doesn't feel conspicuous. Whatever manipulation there is and you know they're certainly is like we're all going to happen to meet up with my parents and I. It does become kind of something that you know is is staged in some of the same ways but I do agree that they're better at making it feel like something that could happen in a real person's life. Yeah so that's the first thing like this to me is evidence that whether they like it or not. Netflix is now better at reality. Tv then movies and with that the second thing it says to me is the things we do or do not talk about publicly when it comes to courtship. I think this show is really brave and having these people who are strangers very early on in their quote unquote relationships talk about race. Talk about physical appearance. Talk about money. One of the couples has to deal with the fact that one is black and one white. And they discuss it. The entire time very openly and candidly and responsibly. Another couple Barnett. And what's her name? Maria she's flat broke in one episode. She says to him my credits crap. I don't always have a job a few months ago. I was Outta my car. What you think about that. You would never see that on the bachelor you would. And most couples don't talk about that until it's too late so to see. That disgust candidly on this show. I find it kind of refreshing. Well it's one of those things where it's both early and too late because on the one hand only known each other for a couple of weeks but on the other hand there are already engaged so I agree that there's that funny. There's this funny conversation between a SAM mentioned Barnett. And amber where? It's not just that she's saying like I'm broke or whatever and he asks her. How many days a week she works and she says as many as I feel like she says I work to live. I don't live to work. Which is one of those things red flag that could be as you said. There's such a fine line between my queen and I know the same way about folks to say that as folks who say. I don't do drama. It's like Oh no. You don't drama. Well right actually do drama. You sort of have to theoretically talk about those things but you have none of the history that might make talking about those things in some ways both easier and harder. But you have to do it anyway. The part that I found most jarring to tell you the truth was like the very first time someone in this show says I love you. I almost crawled out of my skin of so weird so weird. The other thing I think is amazing about it is the people keep saying this is crazy and I keep wanting to say yes. It is run. Are we nuts? Yes in like that is what makes me. What's become the saddest story line in this show? And this is the story of Mark in Jessica. They have a great emotional connection. But Jessica doesn't think that mark is physically her type. He's not tall enough not Nordic enough not blonde enough not white enough and that becomes clear very early on and she never just says that he's also ten years younger than she is and exactly former relationship. Where if it were a family pet you would phen. Is it out of mercy? Twenty hours before this show.
How to Make Small, Sustainable Changes to Make Your Life Better
"How to make small sustainable changes to make your life better by Ellen Bergen if it brings you joy dot com the change in seasons. Got Me thinking about life changes in general. Now hold on your thinking change now for me. It's stressful and probably won't even stick. I completely understand of sworn to stick with a new exercise routine many many times throughout my lifetime only to eventually let my routine slide. The changes I made were not sustainable in the long run. One change that. I've been quite successful with sustaining. As reducing the amount of my clothing a few years ago I looked in my closet and saw way too many clothes that might never wore of all. It's been pretty good about regularly donating close to our local thrift store. But that day I still saw a lot of clothes that I liked but in wear because simply had too many clothes what a waste of space and money had time. I made a different change my vow to stop buying new clothes. I motivated by declaring my closet so felt good to open my closet. Door out went. Anything I didn't wear or in. Love was a real Marie condo moment for two years of stock with what was really one small change. There have been a few necessary purchases and most of those were from a consignment shop. Staying out of tempting clothing stores and feeling passionate about having an organized closet with a manageable.

Well, you know what? I'm my own Marie condo, Email part. I need you. I don't think. Con Marie works on g mail. If it did. I would do it. No one. I did. I actually declared Email bankruptcy, and I just I just kind of abandoned my, gene account. I put a vacation message on there. That says I don't use this anymore. If you need to reach me ask me for my new address. I didn't even put it in the mail because they don't want to give it to spam. And I just moved to Email bankruptcy. It's the quivalent of this house is so cluttered, I'm just gonna leave it. I am done with it. They gave us so many free ones for so many years that all of a sudden you end up using them for your supermarket once and this and that, but now I just wanna get all my personal stuff off and put it someplace else and leave my team with counts clean and pretty much zero out at the end of every day. So I don't know anything in there. It's called inbox zero now honestly with g mail. I don't know if you if inbox zero you wouldn't do it the same way because the whole theory behind g mail going back twelve years when they started was what can I give you so much storage?

You know, if you're decluttering you only want to handle everything once you don't wanna pick it up look at it put it somewhere else. So that you'll have to handle another time. So same thing with Email. You want you want to pick it up once look at it once and dispose of it and ideally in bugs zero you get rid of it, you get out of your inbox. But what Jean I wouldn't delete it. I would put it in what they call the archive the archive is out of sight out of mind, but searchable and the theory being well, you know, five years from now, you might say, well, you know, there used to be this company that offered guacamole by mail, and I wish I could remember the name of it. And you could search for it, and it would still be in your archive. So that's what I would say is. Yes, let's tiny up g mail, but let's not throw it out. That's the temptation deleted. Let's put it in the archive. Ever way to is there a way to save the G mail emails with any attachments on a on another like a passport external pry. You can export it. But I would trust Google save. It is there some reason you wanna have your own personal shirt. You can. But is there some reason you wanna have your own personal copy these days, I think you said earlier on? Hey, listen. Anyway. So what are you gonna do? You know, it's for privacy. Yep. Yep. Yep. So there's a couple of things you can do you can have another service gather all your g mail from it. And you can even have another service back at all up. There are services that specialize in backing up g mail and a quick Google. Search will show you whole bunch of those. So that's that's putting it somewhere else. And then you could delete it from g mail, but Google also lets you download it directly. If you want Google is famous for this. They call it, data takeout, and they will let you download any of your Google data directly to your hard drive. And so if you wanted to you could go down to the computer store pick up you probably don't need. I mean, I've had g mail for as I said for more than a decade. And I only have fifty gigabytes storage, you wouldn't need a giant hard-drive..

"And ignorance is no should not be excused simply because the ignorance tend to support the woke narrative. Okay. Time for some things. I like, and then some things that I hate so things that I like, so I had heard a lot about this, Marie condo thing. And I actually went out and got her book the life changing magic of tidying up, and I have been going through it. And I will admit I like this thing I do now. I know it's a little it's a little touchy feely. Here's a lot of stuff in there about thanking objects before you throw them out, but contrary to popular opinion, I actually do have feelings particularly about the stuff in my house, and she is not wrong that thanking objects before throwing them away, for example is not about the object, obviously taking account of your feelings. But it is about you recognizing. The your memories are gonna remain even if you throw away a particular item of clothing be haven't worn for thirty years. There's a lot of good advice in this book. Really? I. Listen, I've young kids. I'm using my house is constantly a mess like all the time because they take out their toys. I told them put them away. They argue with me they put away three cores of the toys, and then the other quarter of the toys are left until I have time to actually put them away. But she is correct. That going through one large spate of cleaning your house is significantly better than constantly cleaning. I just went through my wardrobe a couple of days ago, and I gave away like half the stuff in there too goodwill. My my closet is cleaner. I feel better about it. So give it a dry seriously. I know really off brand right, but go check it out the life changing magic of tidying up by Marie condo, kind of a fun book. Okay. Other things that I like, so I have to acknowledge when we're talking about the woke media, and the Wilk narrative there's certain questions that the woke media can ask that nobody else is allowed to ask because these questions are actually racist. So Bernie Sanders was asked by Charlemagne the God on one of these podcasts about a shovel in the rapper. Yes. Okay. Thank you. So Bernie Sanders the leading democratic presidential candidate in a near. Engineer. And socialist who has never done any productive thing in his life. He was asked about whether America needs another white president. Now, let's just stop there for a second. You know, wildly. And insanely inappropriate that is why wouldn't American need another white president. Can you imagine anybody saying, listen, we rock Obama? You suck. Do we really need? Another black president that'd be ridiculous. It depends on who the black person is I said this when Obama was elected I didn't want Obama to be president. Because I wanted a better qualified black person. Because I wanted a better qualified person..

Don't like try reliving the past and like going through it again. Yeah. I mean at the same time you wanna get closure. I'm sure yeah. But the thing is it's like one thing you have to learn about closure that I've learned many times. When attempting to get closure is like you almost never get it from another person. True almost never like, it's it's great. If you wanna fill heard, but like every single time I've tried to be like, I'm leading this situation. And I'm going to say the following thing. So they know why they hurt me. And. We're this and this and this ninety nine point nine percent of the time. They don't get it doesn't make me feel better. It just was much of motion labor that was like wasted right on. I should've just been like I'm out. I don't really care.

Anyway, she's big phenomenon right now. She's she's the she's Japanese and she does this thing about decluttering people's lives. And so her whole thing is sparking joy. So if as you go through all your stuff. If something does not spark joy. It goes. Yeah. Sparks from joy today. But so there must be. A lot of dissatisfaction in people's lives because their windows and doors inciting or drafty and they're not sparking -joy enjoy that right? Park. Enjoy is Bob sump pump. Hey, bob. Thanks for waiting. Sorry. Sorry. Made wait till I used to still with us. Did you? I am. I've just listened to it like a radio show on my phone good. How about that? All right. So what's up with what's going on? All right. So my sub pumps making like a quiet humming grinding noise and last week before the deep freeze and all that snow. I went outside, and it's kinda Doug. I wasn't sure how lifted affect my sub pompous. Those could be any melting actually dug away the outside alive is hose going up to the yard or whatever. So this stuff would go out. And it seemed like it was working. But like yesterday when I got home from work all of a sudden, like you're my sub pump kind of making a like a humming kind of. And I didn't know if there was way to test it, or if it just to those things go bad or I don't know. What's up is it humming? Just when it's running. I take it. No. It's not active like, I know when myself pumps after by your water kinda go up here. Shootout coming all the time. Yeah. So I just don't I unplug it last night. Because I didn't think that was a good thing. Right. Right. Coming thing. And then you know 'cause what toon. It's humming. I guess but just kidding nothing. Fancy dad. So I didn't know if I was gonna call one of my buddies. And then I thought well how how old is up pump. Reclose is it over ten years old? Maybe I bought a house like twenty years, maybe pumper too. Its own sparked. Not that not that sump pumps have shelf lives per se, but it sometimes it's just for peace of mind, change the pump. It could be an issue with a switch or something like that. But normally if it's going to it just when the pump is on mean 'cause powers to it. And if powers to it, then it shouldn't come. So whether there's something to issue with it switch that it's that it's in a. Well, it goes up and down. There's different different different pumps have different types of systems. Some are based on a pressure system. Some have rod that goes up and down some have afloat that goes up and down. So there there's many different ways of that of that system that that that switch to turn the pump on. So. The other thing you can do. I mean, if you want to take a picture of it, you can go to our website ballpark. Wpr semi Email me a picture, at least I can take a look, and maybe advice things a little bit more clear, but on this level right now, if professional opinion, probably just put a new pump is what's gonna drop on that? How much for good pump? You won't be a buck. Fifty one hundred hundred fifty for a good pump, not bad. Yeah. Right. I mean, if you had three inches of water out, would you pay? But yeah, I'm of there's there's other things they also I don't want to just say, well, you said you got a problem like in the winter like when it's like that deep-freeze last week, and he's definitely definitely the pipe can freeze. Yeah. So it could be. Maybe it's not on the shelf. Digging out the water exit four sump pump for the gutters. So you wanna get together? It's your water sitting in the crock here not too much. I mean, you can. Yeah. You know, I rarely look in the damn thing. But you got to pipes that go into that. Smet boil water below the came. Yeah. Yeah.

"marie condos" Discussed on Happier in Hollywood
"If you have a lot of things that you're sort of vaguely interested in and then like, you notice there's one that you keep going back to one that kind of sparks the most to steal from Marie condo, joy, the most kind of creative inspiration. Then you start to go. Okay. This is the one that has something special. Yeah. And the other thing is and it kind of goes with our advice to people have take the meeting always take the meeting because like say, we meet with a producer on a project like it could take a year for something to to manifest there. So it's like keep things going because you don't know which one is going to actually come through in Hollywood. It is very a very bad idea. To have all your eggs in one basket. Just on a practical level, forget the creative. Forget all other things just on a practical level, you never know what's going to actually happen. So you need to have multiple irons in the fire. Now, Liz, do you think there's a danger in having lots of irons in the fire leading to a lack of focus. I do think that's a danger. And I do think that's something you and I do struggle with. I think having a partner helps because we can force each other. Like, here's the pro you and I do really well with deadlines yet. So whatever iron has the most pressing deadline, and we need like hopefully, something does have an actual deadline that helps us, but if nothing has done line you, and I can get very like pulled in many directions, and like have a hard time focusing in on actually accomplishing something. Yeah. And I would imagine that if you are like a only person writer like a single ride. Ter-? A non team on team writer that would in some ways even harder because I think we we also help each other focus like win that thing rises win that cream thing right to the top. We do help each other focus on that. It's just something to be aware of like Yar use whereas your attention getting to defuse. Yeah. But I would say think about how you don't wanna have fifteen iron Smith. That's too many. You know, I'd say under five probably three to five. Yeah. Three to five. Good ones three to five good ones. And then drop things that you decided aren't going to go anywhere. That's the other thing is we drop ideas or drop projects. God. Yes. Now, we'll say Sundays. We drop them for a couple of years.

"If you give true TV guy very much thought that big treat them, and they're giving shows impractical jokers, and then the carbonaro effect. I'm gonna watch them TV tonight fellas only if it's impractical jokers. I think it's on Netflix snow now, I'm going to watch whatever's on TV, I'm making that promise and commitment to myself asking you that. But I feel like I went to the podcast go on and watch them. God damn true TV, my friend. All right. No one's asking you. But I'm gonna do it more things. What are some of the worst type of people that movies? We can expand on this one day, but like off top of your head. What's what's the worst one lately for we the three of us? It's definitely seat. Steelers people who just don't read the fucking ticket. Was that a movie with Marie condo the other day? She's cleaning everything stop in the movie to clean, everything around me. It's don't. I like the way you tied in Marie condo to the topic. I had to get that slip in somewhere. I think it's I think it's not they're not that disruptive. But the sheer goal of it in the hubris of it pisses me off is when people come into a movie late. This is this is like less current day because of the signs seating. But more in the past, and they they come in and to group of five of them. And they start looking around like up top like they're gonna find some Premo seating, ten minutes per group of five people like that is dead fury. It's me. It's like what what do you think? You think we just parted the sea here assholes? I'd one guy when actually when I went to see can you forgive me who he took my seat. Right. And so like, okay. Where'd you sit? So I'll just take your seat. I don't really care that much because NC is go actually like, I don't really know right sat but it's in the middle somewhere, and I'm claustrophobic. So I just wanna take your seat, and he just said it straight to my face. I was like that's not an excuse to take something that's on paid for. But I mean, it was like fucking five hundred pound guy too. So I couldn't just sit next to him though, was like, okay. I just go sit over here. And then I got kicked out of that seat. And then got kicked out of the seat. I went to and it was a whole shebang. But if that guy he's still like the movie, so I just a testament to to Richard. What about the people who comment on the trailers tell their significant other that they're going to see that? I wanna see that the best. Oh, oh, not bad. Oh, oh, the tough thing about the people who show up late now is that now that there is assigned seating. People feel like it is justification to show up closer to the movie time because they know where they're gonna be. But now more and more people are showing up late, and then they're getting in line late for the food. And then they come in late when the movie's ready started, and now that's just more fucking annoying. And so I mean that's just a joke, and it's the phone lights now because now people have the phone lights out because they wanna find the number on the ground or like the letter for their folks to sit in there fucking flashing people's faces. The assigned seats have been great. But they've also created some real monsters in the theater, some might say, but the hot dog guys hot food people in general, not offen-. Yeah. And the hot food takes awhile to. I I guess Presley apprentice don't make a smell so feel like that doesn't count. It's only smells. That's the worst part is yet hotdog smells, bad some of the stuff. I just don't get eating dark like eating like an aloe draft house, but the mini flat breads that you're eating in the I mean, I still popcorn over myself in the theatre to begin with imagine just like the flat breads with the cheese and the sauce and shit over it. I feel like if you're buying food like that and move you don't give a shit about spilling it on your cell phone. It's probably true. Then probably I did have my movie theater going, Jack. And I still have it. I wear that jacket movies all the time..

And if they take off their blindfolds, and they see this creature that apparently they shot for the film, and it just was so bad. It was so hokey they ended it out. But it made it scarier that was smarter. That's why jaws you hardly see the shark because it really didn't look that good. But it made the movie scarier, so they're all blindfolded.

This I watched how she folds her shirts. Because Vince, you were talking about the shirt folding. Yes. So I pulled up a video to watch her fall shirts, and you have to put it takes her four minutes to fold shirt. I don't have that kind of time. But she loves you have to think the shirt and tell the shirts thank you for for all the joy, it has given you. But when you dispose of the shirt, thank you. Shirt, and she's she's loving it. And you have to put you know transfer. How you feel about the shirt to the full damn shirt? She who's got this kind of time. This woman has people she's really into it. In fact, when she enters the home before she does I watched an episode of this and entered the home the first thing she does with the family that lives. There is everyone has to stop meditate. She sits on the ground, and she pauses and meditates, and they have to like think about the spirit of the house and everything they're about to do is a it's all very, very spiritual. He's supposed to think about the spirit of the t shirt that you got at a concert in nineteen eighty seven. That it's brought you as you folded to get it to stand up and your draw or you can just do what I do foot flapping in the drought goes. But anyway, so USA today read a piece that this whole tidying up with Marie condo is just enforcing gender stereotypes. So we're gonna throw it out to you eight eight eight six three zero nine six two five in your home who is mostly responsible for keeping the house clean, and who feels the most guilt when the houses and clean your house. It looks like a bomb went off injured as mine often does who feels the most guilt about that. I do. I mean, I have to tell you because I see much more dirt than my husband. Does men have this ability to just not see dirt. I don't know how it happens, but my husband vacuum generalizing here. Well, here's this. Here's a here's a question for you. I'm stereotyping how do you feel about if dirty dishes in the sink in the evening? Can you go to? Bed with those dishes sitting in the sand and say, I'll do it in the morning or is the guilt. Get to you so greatly that you have to complete the pots, pans, everything and have them back in their rightful place before the evening is Don considering both of us live our lives beach on four to five hours of sleep a night. We are so insanely exhausted. Yes. Almost every night. It'll just sit. I if if dishes that I can put in the dishwasher, they go in Bouma bump, but it was like bigger things like pots, let them soak. We'll just soak it overnight. It'll be easier to clean in the morning. Yeah. So you're tolerant of that. I have to be. I'm too tired. Yeah. Well, some people are not some people are not tolerant of that. They just can't can't let that dish. Or can't let that pot sit overnight and wait for the morning because when they wake up in the morning, they want a clean kitchen. They want to see they wanna walk into their kitchen and be like there is nothing for me to do here. That's what we have doors on our kitchen because I can just close those doors doesn't exist. Just pretend my kitchen. My problem is not there. So they're saying that this reinforces gender stereotypes because the burden of the physical act of decluttering, and the emotional labor that comes with keeping a house in an orderly and ultimately order ultimately falls back on the woman in the household in episode after episode of this Marie? Condo show. Now. Here is one of an excerpt from one of the episodes of the husband and the wife talking about how there's too much stuff and the wife admitting there's something I feel like our house is a.

"Hello. I. Now, Marie condo has a reality show on Netflix. She has people go through all of their possessions and throw out anything that doesn't spark joy is crossing. Katherine. Next is to help us understand how this famous declutter became such a sensation. I spoke to Linda Holmes. She's host of NPR's pop culture. Happy hour. Hi, linda. Hi, david. See like the show. I do like it. It's a lot of fun. It is right. You learn things like I learned exactly how to fold a fitted sheet, which is something I've been struggling with since. I don't know. Like, I was twelve. Yeah. I think if that was all that people took away from this. They'd feel like it was worthwhile. The idea of reality show that is about making over your home or making over your life. That's not new so where does this fit in the constellation of all those shows? Well, there haven't just been lots of homemade over shows. There have even been other cleaning organizing shows, but I think this one is different because it brings together that John of television. But also what you might call self care culture, which is mostly aimed at women. And it's kind of a encouragement to be at peace and take care of yourself and her methods of cleaning also incorporate a lot of stuff about feeling good and happy rather than just make your office more. Functional. I wanna play a clip from one conversation that happened in an episode. This was between Murray condo and and a couple Rachel and Kevin friend. That's all. Doll saturdays. So both of you work. He mostly works. I teach intercultural communication few days a week, but I'm mostly home.

Tidy and grew with the blunt black fringe and a vast wardrobe of white card agains, she claims to love mess. But of course, the sensation among Netflix subscribers with a new series on decluttering. So what exactly is the Kameri method? And does it really spark joy Horatio Harris discusses the phenomenon with F columnist. Joe ellison. I've gone don't restore. Does getting your. Big above. Joe? Okay. So we've just heard a clip from the trailer overseeing Marie condos being on the scene for a while cleaning up in every sense since her book was published into an eleven you've been watching the Netflix show. What do you think of it? Well, I was definitely a condo. Virgin until the Netflix documentary. Although I've sort of heard about her through other people in via other people who have testified to her life changing magic. I haven't seen it myself. And I think it's quite interesting as a TV phenomenon because oversee Conde herself is this kind of incredible personality and the orthodoxies of her cleaning methods are also quite extreme. So this weird combination of this L flake person who walks into people's lives and transforms them, plus her kind of extraordinary folding techniques. They're just very fascinating for starting you for the cross you should try to Paul them. So the to stand upright on their on these. Now, I do the most freight how to four and then I found myself literally looked into wanting to try out her technique. So obviously, then I'm box on of ever perjure the weekend, which I found really quiz. That's fine. I found the program with Li boring. It's to suit of couples being quite touchy with each other. But as ching it I found myself with handfuls of sock. Suddenly, and was just sorting stuff out oversee for those who don't know the principal, fundamental logic of her cleaning is that any object that you own or have in your house should spark joy in the beholder. So her whole principle is about holding an all jet touching objects deciding whether it's spokes joy in you. And then you are the Chuck into a trash can or you keep and cherish it forevermore. So I think that's the thing that I mean, it's actually quite boring watching people touching sort of hundreds of thousands of object. Within the house. And also does that argument that cleaning is agenda specific thing to be doing? So is produced quite low of controversy. I think about how we live our lives. So of that social history angle has been quite an interesting thing to follow because you will call them. Go some responses that seem quite gendered. Brought up questions of the household division of labor did a prompt those conversations in your household. I think yes, I mean, I'm quite smug in that I fail as they as a couple were quite toity quite a tidy couple. But I think we definitely have gender specified cleaning duties, I'm very much of the Theresa May school of Baluch should do the bins because is a man's job. And I also found my husband cleaned out the seller whilst I tackled the wardrobe. So I think we I mean, it is it's sort of like the home of some slightly uncomfortable trades and the truth is I have an awful of clothes, which I like to argue is part of my job requirement as a fashion it you have to. I think that has led some friction the past what some person wants to cherish, and what the other partner doesn't think his worthy of cherishing is oversee quite contentious in every household, and I think the program constantly highlights. The bloke has a massive collection of baseball cards. The wife has a huge collection of Christmas decorations and. One person doesn't rate the others. So it's all about the value of objects. But also, I think the show has exposed the incredible hoarding acquisitive culture that we are and the sort of ease at which we can just look things out, which is I think possibly has been most alarming about it is like western culture is disgustingly acquisitive thing. And of course, in your case, you clean, your jeans drew posted a photo on Instagram got lots of acclaim for doing. So we've got a lot of response. I think the thing is that D cutter and cleaning does sort of engage people everyone's got their own methodology. Everyone's got their and thoughts about this little skein of conversation that you don't really understand until you start. And then suddenly everyone's going opinion. And everyone's quite ferocious about it. Now, how many gene should a person own? What we should you do it should you stock should he fold should you? And I think part of that interest is also because we're in a very peculiar. Time now with the so little clarity on anything, politically or economically. And you know, you've got America, and I'm not trying to make too broad a political analogy, but you've got real problems in the US with the government shutdown. We've got this weird horrible specter of Brexit where no one knows what's happening and a d think there's a sort of keep calm and carry on motivation and just giving three sub jewel renite going through Smalls in working out. What you need to keep them. What you don't need to it sort of gives you a some sense of older in your life. That might be missing in the broader picture, I think who've Theresa May and husbands still taking out the been. So at least one thing is going to plan. It's very army years ago. I can't remember which general it was, but he did a Harvard address. So he did one of those big graduate addresses and his first point of order to all the graduates who will coming out of the Marine Corps was make your bed the point being that by doing that you've accomplished your first task for the day. And I think that's very much. You know, it's about the. Order of life. And I think tidy people do tend to be more productive Chavez Lee Darrow. I say. And obviously a big part of the con- Mary method is this folding aspects. Are you going to reorganize all of your stuff? Or was that one drawer is that Nuff you I like thinking about objects in terms of whether or not they actually met you happy. And are they worth keeping what I find a bit more worrying as what on earth happened to the stuff that doesn't make happy? I want to make sure that it ends up somewhere that isn't a landfill. Ideally, my eighty four percent of all craving does increase any more of kitchen appliances and bits of plastic tap that we've accumulated I sometimes feel beholden to kind of hold onto it because I don't know where else is going to go. And I felt as their environmental cost is going to be too great. If just shocking in the bin. But I guess that license was slightly given to us by Conde who's very much like fill up the trash cans and get rid of it all and I know you express some worry about the ecological consequences throwing out CNN did a report on thrift stores in the US only being just since the show came out. I think. On New Year's day. They've been inundated with stuff, a huge, spike. I think in requests for recycling bags and requests into various different charities about. Whether they take all this old stuff, whether or not there's any staff, and if these operations to actually process the stuff remains to be seen amid the Cabeza over sooner may of cramp coming to chart shops all over Britain, and the US which is slightly worry about also whether there's actually the infrastructure to handle it. But I think the whole thing's giving us an opportunity to think about what we have the way we treat. What we have what we should be repairing what we should be looking after and how we should be cherishing. It one thing that people seem to have criticized her for is take on books that seems to have really stood up lot of ill will because she personally keeps only thirty books in her home. She kind of in an hour is not you get a you read it, and then you move on a total heresy. Nightclub one one out strategy. The lot of people seem to find really appalling. Do you have any quibbles with her philosophy? I think isn't it. The point though that you keep what gives you the joy. So I suppose if you are made joyful by your three thousand book stock of ancient manuscripts that you look at and feel great about then you should keep them. And I've certainly got quite a lot of books at home. But I do think having a little bit. So on your shelf is sort of form of intellectual snob. Raise just as flashy. I think of the time there's owning an antique painting or a chair. Yeah. Oversee Marie Connell. Isn't the first person that we've come across who's urged us to clean up stuff? I was desperate to mention Kim and Aggie a British TV show where they went and with Mira goals and bleach, and essentially sort of swings of clean, the, original queens clean. But these things seem to have come in phase. Faces. Do you think that the condo converts will will we stick with this process? Will she's been going since two thousand eleven or at least probably before that. I mean, that's when her first book came out, and obviously it's loosely based on what seems to be some sort of spiritual mantras. Well, it's not merely getting the bleach out or just hiding according to upset and method. So I think it's very in keeping with this new atmosphere and drive towards the wellness Konami where everything you must do must be spiritually enriching. And it's not just about getting your garage looking gray. It's about will say Philly wonderful about it. And then but Lessing that space and having gratitude for it. But I mean, if we even back to say, MRs Beeton, it was household management. I mean, she was offering people kind of mandate for how to run their households. Efficieny I hope that in several tens of decades since that hasn't become a woman's duty anymore. It's a bit more split. But I still think running a family home as a massive problem for a lot of people. And I think anyone is prepared to give a really really strict guidelines is always going to be quite successful. But I'm sure we'll shift into some new epoch of cleaning and the inst- come.
