Make Your Own Power Spot – KonMari | The Official Website of Marie Kondo

Make Your Own Power Spot

Whether you live alone or with others, it’s essential to have a power spot filled with items you love. A power spot is a personal space that brings you joy, helps you recharge and provides room for daily meditation, gratitude practices and creative exploration. No matter the size, the benefits are immeasurable: Marie likens it to having a hand warmer in your pocket on a cold day.

The idea of a home power spot has deep roots in Japanese culture, where power spots better translate as “spiritual spots” — places like Mount Fuji or the Meiji Jingu shrine in Tokyo — where visitors go to both connect with nature and their inner selves.

Think of a home power spot, then, as a hybrid space for mindfulness practices. You might use it as a dedicated meditation room or simply as a place for clearing the air and taking a few deep breaths at the end of a long day. Here is how to create one of your own the KonMari way.



Set an Intention

Having a power spot comes with responsibility – you’re in charge of the items you put there and keeping it clean and full of good energy. Once you’ve chosen and established your space, tend to it regularly – wiping down surfaces, dusting frames and replacing objects that no longer spark joy. Marie’s current power spot is a small workstation in her bedroom – decorated with flowers, crystals and pictures drawn by her children; it’s a sacred nook where she recharges. She freshens the flowers every week and makes space for new handmade treasures.

Transform Your Closet

Even if you live alone or have plenty of space, Marie recommends turning the inside of your closet into a spot that gives you a thrill of pleasure. Decorate the wall behind your clothes or the inside of the door with images and objects that inspire and delight you. Your closet is a private paradise – personalize it to the fullest!

Claim a Corner

If space is limited, designate a small section of a shared room as your own – ideally somewhere you spend a lot of time. Hang shelves on the wall to display your special items – or decorate a cork board with joy-sparking pictures and artwork. You can also turn your desk into a power spot. These are a few of our favorite organizers for keeping surfaces clutter-free.

One of the goals of tidying is for your whole home to feel like a power spot – a relaxing environment filled with pure energy. You can have as many power spots as you want – but you should have at least one!
