The Money Way of KonMari…

Japanese exports not just anime…. but mindfulness techniques.  First there was the KonMari method which is a mindfulness exercise on how to manage clutter.  Today, I readabout the Kakeibo method which is also a mindfulness exercise on how to manage finances.

One of the KonMari tenets is to decide whether or not an item “sparks joy.”  Reading about Kakeibo, there are 4 questions to answer…

  1. How much money do you have available?
  2. How much do you want to save?
  3. How much money are you spending?
  4. How can you improve?

This kind of makes me wonder… can the mindfulness to eating also be connected like with the KonMari and Kakeibo methods?  Maybe these 4 questions?

  • Am I hungry?
  • Am I eating because food is in front of me?
  • Am I eating because it’s the “appropriate time” to eat aka breakfast/lunch/dinner?
  • Is what I am eating going to make me happy?

Or maybe simplified to just the first, third and last question?
