Marie Kondo reveals the adorable daily ritual she has with her daughters

Marie Kondo has revealed the adorable daily ritual she has with her daughters that sparks joy in her life.

The queen of neat and tidy has been inspiring millions to de-clutter their lives ever since her series, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, landed on Netflix at the start of the year.

And now the 34-year-old decluttering guru has opened up about what sparks joy in her day-to-day life.

She spoke to HelloGiggles about everything from which items in her home spark joy  – the crystal in her bedroom, her earthen pot, “donabe,” where she cooks special rice, and her antique writing desk, FYI) to the adorable evening ritual she has with her two daughters.

When asked about what sparks joy for her other than tidying, she said:

“After tidying up from the day, I do yoga with my children in the evening to wind down.

“I also invest in nice, organic cotton pajamas, indulge frequently in linens, and have an air purification ritual I perform every evening.”

Yoga is often hailed as a great exercise for adults – helping to keeps our limbs flexible and our minds calm – something which many of us are seeking as we lead increasingly hectic lives.

But it can also have plenty of great benefits for children, too – and you can read more on that here.
