"The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing"
There's a reason this book has been the recipient of much fanfare. The KonMari Method, coined from the author's name, approaches the act of tidying as a mindset, rather than a set of techniques. One way in which Kondo encourages tidiness is to take each of your items in your hand and ask yourself if it "sparks joy." By doing so, she encourages you to surround yourself with only the things you love for a more purpose-filled lifestyle free of distractions and unnecessary material possessions. Kondo guarantees that decluttering your home is more than just that. The very act can also declutter the mind and bring about "dramatic changes in lifestyle and perspective" with continued results.
