How to Keep House While Drowning: A Gentle Approach to Cleaning and Organizing by KC Davis LPC | Booklicious Podcast | Episode 25
Hello and welcome back to the “Booklicious podcast”, where we bring you the latest and greatest in the world of literature. I’m your host Shashi Shekhar, and today we’ll be discussing the book “How to Keep House While Drowning: A Gentle Approach to Cleaning and Organizing” by K.C. Davis.
As the title suggests, this book is all about cleaning and organizing your home, but with a gentle approach that doesn’t leave you feeling overwhelmed or drowning in your own mess. K.C. Davis is a professional organizer who has helped many people transform their homes into comfortable and functional spaces, and in this book, she shares her tips and tricks to make cleaning and organizing more manageable.
One thing I appreciated about this book is that it’s not just a list of cleaning hacks and organizational tips. Instead, Davis takes a holistic approach, recognizing that our physical environment is deeply connected to our mental and emotional well-being. She discusses how clutter and disorganization can contribute to feelings of stress and anxiety, and offers strategies to help readers create a space that promotes calm and relaxation.
One of the main themes throughout the book is the idea that small, consistent actions can lead to big results. Davis emphasizes the importance of creating a cleaning routine that works for you, rather than trying to follow someone else’s strict guidelines. She encourages readers to start small, tackling one area of the home at a time, and celebrating each small victory along the way.
Another aspect of the book that I found helpful was Davis’s emphasis on the importance of self-care. She recognizes that cleaning and organizing can be emotionally and physically taxing, and offers suggestions for taking breaks, rewarding yourself, and asking for help when you need it.
Overall, “How to Keep House While Drowning” is a practical and compassionate guide to cleaning and organizing your home. Whether you’re a neat freak or a self-proclaimed slob, this book has something to offer. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to create a more comfortable and functional living space, while also taking care of their own well-being.
