Like many parents, when California schools shut down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, organizing guru Marie Kondo found herself taking on a whole new role: homeschool teacher. The mom of two made a name for herself streamlining people’s homes worldwide through her bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, but now, she's looking at her own home in a whole new light.
Over a Google Hangout with her interpreter, Marie Iida, the expert shared how her routine’s changed—and how her upcoming book, Joy at Work (out April 7, though you can preorder it now), has helped her work, teach and play from home. The key? Keep it simple—and budget in breaks for yourself, too.
