9780563524274: The Life Laundry: How to De-junk Your Life

This is an inspirational guide to fighting clutter and sorting out your space, based on the bestselling BBC book and TV series. Clutter can be a huge problem for many of us. We yearn to live in a perfectly-ordered home, but more often than not we find ourselves drowning in a sea of 'stuff'. Not only is it depressing to live in a mess, but accumulating too many things can create negative energy and can even affect your health. Fortunately, lifestyle expert Dawna Walters has the solution. In this essential audio companion, she explains how to take control of your possessions - forever. She demonstrates how to make order out of chaos by organizing your books, CDs and videos; ridding yourself of unwanted sports equipment; recycling old newspapers and ditching unneccessary paperwork. In addition, she gives advice on streamlining your wardrobe, and points out 'scary places' where clutter can lurk, such as airing cupboards, sheds and lofts. As it can be frightening to contemplate throwing away items with sentimental value, she also provides practical exercises on learning to 'let go', including breathing and visualisation techniques to expel negative emotions, relieve stress and help prevent hoarding habits from returning. Packed with invaluable advice and quick tips, this audio guide will help you every step of the way, motivating you to let go of all the things you've collected but never used and start afresh.

From Publishers Weekly:

BBC co-host Walter (The Life Laundry) and antiques dealer Franks help readers tidy up cluttered living spaces in this cheerful how-to book. Directed at a wide audience-singles, married couples, divorcees, college students, professionals-the book explains why things begin to pile up, what the effects of clutter are and how to confront the challenge of cleaning it up. Correlating uncommonly messy homes with illness, stress and emotional hang-ups, the authors maintain that excessive material possessions "are often masking a more serious problem of holding on to past situations and emotions that you need to release in order to move forward." Concise chapters focus on different varieties of mess (clothing, entertainment articles, papers, garage junk, etc.) and include a self test to help determine the individual's particular problem areas. The authors, in an encouraging, empathetic tone, help the reader decide what is worth keeping and what should be thrown out.
