Have you ever thought about your reaction when some of your things breaks? I have and I have also realized that my reactions and feelings have changed over time. Yesterday, two of my cups in the kitchen fell to the floor and I was fully aware of how my mindset has shifted.

In the last episode I told you about The Simplicity lifestyle membership . - The membership and community for all women who want to add simplicity into their lives and make a change. Maybe you have already started to simplify your home and life, but need some kind coaching or if you are a totally beginner my membership is for you. We´re going to declutter together in the monthly workshops and you´ll be well coached in the monthly masterclasses about simplicity, feng shui and holistic mindset. It going to be amazing!

Everything takes much more time than we think and for now there are some small changes I have to do for the preparation for the membership, but you are most welcome to sign up for the waiting list here at my website: www.ylvamariadesign.com/the simplicity lifestyle  Then I will send you a notification when it starts up. I’m looking forward to see your name on the members list. ❤️

In this episode I´m talking about the mindset about when your stuff breaks. Maybe you can remember when you were a child and you accidentally broke something by mistake and someone become angry or showed their emotions in a way. Or maybe you felt very sad when some of your things you liked get broke. I think this is very common and especially between child and adults. It’s so easy to show the emotions too much for our children when they by mistake break something. And the result of that is a crying child in a locked room or a corner. That scenario isn’t healthy, so if you’re there I think it’s time to start think a little bit different. 

All children break something by mistake now and then and that’s a part of our life. So, don’t get upset when your children break something. Take it easy and you’ll have better relation to your children.

For me it’s very important to love my home. If I don’t it doesn’t feel good and then I immediately want to change something. I move a furniture. Add some flowers, paint a wall or something like that. It’s the small changes which makes the difference. 

I have been working very hard to set up my membership about simplicity, feng shui and holistic mindset. That’s why I have been a little bit off from my podcast. Sometimes life is like that and we have to accept it as it is. In the membership The Simplicity Lifestyle we’re going to have new masterclasses and workshops each month and I’m so excited about it. I have invited very professional people for the masterclasses. So, if you would like to make a change and start to simplify your life, create a clutter-free home and uplift your mindset The Simplicity lifestyle membership is definitely something for you. I hope you gonna like it and I’m looking forward to coach you.

Today I’m talking about the wardrobe and what’s in there. I know I have been talking a lot of this item, but I think it’s very interesting and it’s also the space people often do first when they wants to declutter and simplify their lives.

• Clothes that don’t fit your body

• Clothes with tags

• Clothes you don’t use

• Shoes you never wear, because they hurt your feet

• Clothes that you’re not comfortable in

• Worn out clothes and clothes with holes or in need to be adjusted

• Just in case clothes

• Childrens clothes 

I hope this will help you create some space in your wardrobe and I would be very happy if you email me your result and what you have accomplish. I’m looking forward to hear from you and maybe I can cheer you on.

With love,


As I always say, you should LOVE everything you own and have around you in your home. If you do, you will bring love into your life and feel so much better. Think about if you have something in the room you are in right now if there is something you do not love. You may find many things you do not like. Well, get rid of them, because they will not give you any joy at all.

If you take look at your things you have around you right now where you are for the moment. If you’re not at home you have to do this when you´re coming home of course. You probably see many things around you. I would like you to chose 8 items that you really love in the room where you are for now.

Take each items in your hand and as yourself why you love it and what that special things do for you. Maybe it helps you to be focused or to concentrated or just make you happy. Whatever it is you like it’s so good to be aware of that. Then you’ll learn what things you don’t like and the things that you can leave for good. 


From now on you can book me for a VIP Home makeover private coaching day.

I'm looking forward to help you create a clutter-free home and a simplified life.

I would like to know how it goes for you. Have you started your simplicity journey, are you on track or have you not started? Anyway, no matter what, this episode is a check up for you, so that you can see how to continue this year in simplicity. It’s not easy at all to get started, so if you´re just in the thinking fase, don’t worry. It’s a day tomorrow too.

Now we’re almost in the middle of 2021 and it’s time to check the status for our goal settings. If you interested in how I set up my goals for a new year go and listen to episode no 24 and you’ll get new ideas on how to do that. 

If you already have set your goals for this year, take a look and see if you have accomplished them or if you have to readjust something to achieve what you want this year. Don’t worry, you have plenty of time to readjust. We’re just half-ways in 2021 so far and much can happens yet. 

For your help I have some questions for you to work on. If you would like you can pause this episode and then go on with the next question. These questions are so valuable for you when you continue the rest of this year, so go and get a piece of paper and a pen.

Have a nice week and see you soon!


Why is it so difficult to trust on ourselves and listen to our intuition. Everything happens for a reason and I’m glad you’re here.


If we talk about life from the beginning and newborns. I think they are not afraid at all. Maybe just the sight of the bright light and that's why they're screaming. So why are we afraid as adults? I think there are many reasons for that, but I think we often listen to others too much and too little for ourselves. You know, when a brilliant idea pops into your head and you feel so happy when you think about it. You really think it's a good idea and that it's something you really want to do. But suddenly you start thinking about what others would say and then comes your fear of it, right?


We tend to listen to others more than ourselves and in my opinion that is not positive for us. It's great to have inputs from others, but they do not know about your thoughts and your good feelings you had when you got the brilliant idea. Maybe your friends think it's not a good idea at all, and then you listen and forget about it. If this is you, you need to stand up for yourself a little more. Trust your intuition and your gut feelings. They always say the best for you. Nothing else.


After I have been studied feng shui a long time and also helped other women with feng shui I have found the nice and harmonious life that I like. I know what I like and want in my life and I always follow my heart. I mean EVERY TIME. Back then when I didn’t follow my inner voice I felt so badly afterwards. In my opinion one of the most important thing in life is to listen to yourself.  I just follow what I feel in my life and that’s works well for me and I suggest you too to try.

Have a lovely day!

/Ylva ❤️
