Talltale on why she appreciated Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
Tatiana Zagorac, known professionally as Talltale, is an electronica vocalist, songwriter and drummer based in Edmonton.
She told The Next Chapter why The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo is a book she recently read and loved.
"The book is a simple and easy to understand system to decide what to keep in your life in order to make your life the happiest — because your space dictates your mental state.
"She talks about how having a cluttered space gives us an excuse to avoid our problems. If you have a clean space you have to confront whatever is really going on in your life. That sounds so ridiculous on surface level. But thinking about it it's true — you have such a clean space. Your thoughts are kind of all you have to sit with. The philosophy of the book really makes you look at your things in your space differently."
