By learning some new techniques for thoroughly cleaning up and prioritizing your time so that you can keep yourself organized every day, you will find that you have much more time for fun and Hygge.
In Denmark, social gatherings with friends almost always take place at home and that’s why we, as a nation, are exceedingly passionate about our homes. Many clutter-heads think that orderly people run around all day, cleaning up. They could not be more wrong. Orderly people have simply realized that clutter steals too much energy. It must, therefore, be kept to a minimum.
When you start cleaning up your life, you will experience a larger and larger sense of freedom. You will have no more anxiety about your home, you will be able to spontaneously invite friends over without a second thought, and you will dare to welcome unexpected guests without hesitation. You will be able to take an unplanned day off with a good conscience. You will know how to spontaneously buy the right things in order to beautify yourself, your home, and your life.
Once you know what you appreciate, where your stuff is, and can understand the difference between what is good and what is bad for you to own, you will be free to enjoy the life you that you truly deserve.
I want you to experience the amazing feeling of freedom that comes from living in a home that reflects the best part of you. There is hope. In my upcoming book, ‘Goodbye Clutter, Hello Freedom’, I help you create a home that is easy to clean up and built on the foundation of Danish Hygge.

Thank you for your encouraging reply.
My life the past 10 years could be a screenplay for an unbelievable turn of events.
Luckily, I have survived this Tsunami that turned my Life upside down but . . . in the interim, my life and my home feel like this nickname I’ve given it:
“Bombed out in Beirut!”
You know that saying: what doesn’t kill you makes you
stronger. Well, I disagree, it makes you fragmented and depressed due to the overload to your body, soul, psyche & spirit, over a long period of time. Then you are no longer the same person
and you’ve lost your old self, but it all happens gradually so one day you realize
that you are different, your life is different and it’s not a good thing!
I found I could not smile readily and laughter was impossible, as my heart was
in a state of shock.
The book Square One by Dr. Maroon, helped me recognize where I was at and how to turn myself on all levels, around.
The most healing thing I did was grow a garden! My soul started to thaw and come back to life, each time I spent time in it.
So, here I am, drowning in lists of so many things to do as I have major decluttering to do, cleaning and then ~ happily decorating.
So, I am so very happy your book is available and will be purchasing it through
Barnes & Noble
I did buy Marie Kondo’s book 10 months ago, but haven’t felt the desire to read it,
and being newly into Hygge now ~ I sincerely like the tone of your book and can’t wait to read and implement your ideas and suggestions.
Thank you for writing this inspiring book for all of us, Lena!
Love & Happiness,
