Gretchen Rubin

Overview

Should tidying really be an issue, considering all the things we have to do in our daily life? Gretchen Rubin thinks so. "I finally cleaned out my fridge, and now I know I can switch careers," a friend of Rubin once said. Order boosts our self-confidence, while disorder is likely to increase our stress levels. Often, the mess starts creeping in, and we try to ignore it rather than face it and fix it. But the overflowing desk drawers are getting in the way of your peace of mind.

Since Rubin discovered that tidiness is important for our daily happiness, she started dedicating time to putting her space in order, even on her busiest days. When she feels overwhelmed by work deadlines, she spends twenty minutes cleaning up her office to clear her mind. Outer Order, Inner Calm: Declutter and Organize to Make More Room for Happiness is a book about finding the kind of order that best suits you, and explains how to maintain it over time.

"When I clean up that mess, I'm always surprised by the disproportionate energy and cheer I gain – plus, I'm able to find my keys."
