The Life-Changing Habit to Start Today

A set of books in the library. Knowledge, Science

“Life-changing” is a big claim. Especially when it involves cleaning out your closet …

This conversation started back in January, when Matt read Marie Kondo’s bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. He said it was one of the best books he’d read in years, I said it wasn’t for me.

Boy was I wrong.

Today’s episode departs from our traditional topics of fitness and nutrition, and focuses instead on a habit we’ve both recently adopted. A habit that will free you from clutter, bring new energy to your home, and take you completely by surprise — I know it did me — with how good it feels.

Yup. It may even change your life.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Do your items spark joy?
  • How to start decluttering your home
  • Why it’s acceptable to throw away that ugly sweater
  • Thanking your items (Doug actually does this)
  • What to do with books, race medals, and other items you love

  1. The topic about life changing habits does not depart from fitness or health, as far I view. Because a good habit of daily life is one of the best Mantra for being Healthy and fit. What say you?

  2. Thank you, I already have very little stuff, but this was a good reminder. After listening to this I have collected all my unused clothes and gave them to a charity – including an ugly sweater.
