Mindful Organizing for Health, Home, and Beyond
Published by: Red Lightning Books
Have you ever wondered why you can't summon the energy to declutter those piles of clothes on the floor? Do you wish you knew what policies your workplace could offer so everyone can think more clearly and feel better at work? Or maybe you've felt confused about which ideas even deserve your attention right now? You're not alone. And if you are ready for a change, this book is for you.
Coming from a public health expert who spent over two decades designing health initiatives around the world, Decluttered is a mindful exploration of how and why clutter manifests in our lives–and what we can do about it. Jenny Albertini invites readers to explore decluttering from personal and empathetic angles while acknowledging how clutter does not only manifest as "stuff" in our homes, but also in our relationships and in our everyday lives.
Blending stories and science with writing prompts and creativity exercises, this book will motivate readers to examine their relationship to their surroundings while reducing clutter for their health, in their homes, in their workplaces, and beyond. Jenny shares her own transformative journey of working in clinics in Africa and training under Marie Kondo, along with inspirational moments with clients from her years as professional organizer.
Decluttered will leave its readers feeling:
• Enlightened about underlying health issues related to clutter;
• Aware of what to prioritize for their decluttering journey; and
• Ready to take tangible steps that improve their work lives, home environments, and relationships.
A refreshing addition to the well-being and home genres, Decluttered helps to reduce shame and supports readers to transform their cluttered lives and spaces into foundations for healthy, balanced and intentional living.
Welcome to your world, decluttered.
Jenny Albertini has been organizing health systems and closets around the world for more than two decades. At 36, she left a high-flying career in international health to train under Marie Kondo and become one of her first certified KonMari consultants, where she focused on finding joy within piles of clutter. While putting in thousands of hours of professional organizing Jenny has been featured on PBS, NBC, in the Washington Post, Apartment Therapy and many other media outlets. Recognized for her work fighting the AIDS epidemic while waging war on clutter, she has found a unique way to infuse public health into the professional organizing field. Now, nearly a decade into her career transition, Jenny's first book guides readers through how decluttering mindfully can improve our well-being. She lives in Washington, DC.

"For anyone who feels confused about where to start their decluttering journey, look no further. Insightful and compassionate, Decluttered doesn't just guide you through your closets—it brings clarity into the emotional expansiveness we all crave. Jenny knows that the journey to becoming who we are meant to be is often messy and she expertly offers creative exercises, probing questions, and relatable stories that can transform our lives and spaces."~Amber Rae, bestselling author of Choose Wonder Over Worry and creator of The Feelings Journal
"I am at my best in clear, uncluttered spaces, yet I have rarely achieved them in my home, my office, or my company. Decluttered forever changed that. Jenny Albertini shares a framework for clearing one's professional, physical, personal, and emotional spaces – giving the gift of allowing us to better lead, think, operate, enjoy, and, where necessary, say goodbye to loved ones who leave a lifetime for unwinding when they pass. Decluttered's simple and practical construct for streamlining has helped me to lead more intentionally in my professional life and live more enjoyably in my personal life. Whether you need to declutter your closet, your home, your office, your company, your mind, or your life, Decluttered is a partner in helping unlock space for creativity, innovation, and purposeful leadership and living. A must-read for those seeking clarity, organization and 'found' time in an increasingly complex and cluttered world."~Cheryl Mills, founder and CEO of the BlackIvy Group
