Personal Wellness is NOT About Other People with Cara Clark (EP336)

"Feeling good starts with food. When you eat in a way that nourishes your body, you don’t experience cravings and you don’t feel hungry, restricted, or deprived. You feel satisfied and energized. You begin to crave the food that makes you feel good. As you begin to feel better from the inside, your mind becomes clearer. You start to feel hope, and that feeling of hope opens up all kinds of possibilities for your health and your life." - Cara Clark Joining me today is renowned nutritionist and wellness educator, Cara Clark. From advising A-list celebrities to guiding Olympic athletes, Cara has helped her clients feel better in their bodies by moving away from “dieting” and instead understanding the connection between what we eat and how we feel. In this episode, we dive into various topics such as limiting information consumption, regulating blood sugar, navigating indulgences (while maintaining self-awareness), understanding disordered eating, embracing movement that resonates with you, and much more. ------------------------------- Links Discussed in This Episode Order a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with Simplicity Mental Health Awareness Month Can't Stop Talking About: Castor Oil Compress Connect with Cara: Instagram Website Enjoy this Podcast?

Beyond the Baby Years: Clearing the (Heavy) Clutter with Alissa Henry (EP322)

The set up of today’s conversation is slightly different than previous episodes. Alissa has been a previous guest on the podcast so we just jumped right into our topic: the struggle of infertility and the emotional process of letting go of baby items. In our conversation, Alissa discusses the mindset shift from holding onto hope to embracing gratitude for what she already has. She also emphasizes the importance of not feeling alone in this journey and encourages listeners to consider decluttering as a positive step forward. Many of you have reached out asking how to declutter those items you just can’t let go of - specifically baby items - and my hope is that this conversation provides some answers for you - even if your only takeaway is more confidently knowing that you aren’t alone. ------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicitySubstack: Minimalist Moms Podcast NEW EBOOK | Let's Simplify: Newborn + PostpartumSubstack: Minimalist Moms PodcastEP207: Swedish Death Cleaning: Mandatory or Morbid?EP165: Practical Tips for Decluttering BooksPrevious episode with AlissaInstagram postConnect with Alissa:InstagramBlogEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

The Joy of Missing Out with Tanya Dalton (REPLAY)

A lot of my current listeners may have missed this previous episode with guest, Tanya Dalton (and even if you did hear the original, it’s a great one to re-listen to as you discover the joy of missing out in your own life!) This episode is full of reminders for how we can gracefully say "no" (and to use it as a full sentence), quick tips to establish more JOMO in our day-to-day and more...This week, I speak with author, Tanya Dalton. Tanya Dalton is a productivity expert, writer, speaker and founder of inkWELL Press Productivity Co, a company centered around productivity tools and training. Her first book, The Joy of Missing Out, will release October 1st. In her highly anticipated first book, Dalton inspires women to reject the pressure to do more, be more, and achieve more. She shows them how to focus on what's important to them and then helps them develop their own unique productivity systems. Today, we will speak to the themes in her book and discuss why it's so important for each of us to discover JOMO for ourselves!------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicitySubstack: Minimalist Moms Podcast NEW EBOOK | Let's Simplify: Newborn + PostpartumSubstack: Minimalist Moms PodcastConnect with Tanya:Book: The Joy of Missing Out by Tanya DaltonWebsiteInstagramEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

In today's conversation, we explore how idealism, while often celebrated, can impede personal growth, fostering dissatisfaction and burnout.

“I Am Out With Lanterns Looking For Myself” with Maggie Smith (Bonus Episode)

"What now? I am out with lanterns, looking for myself. But here’s the thing about carrying light with you: No matter where you go, and no matter what you find—or don’t find—you change the darkness just by entering it.

I picked up her book on vacation over the summer and finished within a couple of days. What some are calling a 'divorce memoir' actually discredits the profound truths of self-discovery in life's second chapter.Join me for a bonus discussion with Maggie Smith as she explores: "the power of learning to come home to yourself."-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicitySubstack: Minimalist Moms PodcastConversation Starter CardsLaura Fenton SubstackConnect with Maggie:Book: You Could Make This Place BeautifulSubstackInstagramWebsiteEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

[REPLAY] Values-Based Budgeting with Janice Scholl (EP123)

I rarely re-release an episode but I found myself scrolling through the podcast archives and saw that this episode had very few downloads. I looked at the release date and noticed that it had originally aired in the early summer of 2020. I can pretty much guarantee most of us were a bit distracted at that point in time but this is a conversation that is a worthwhile listen. So here we go - a replay of "Values-Based Budgeting" with my guest, Janice Scholl.---------------------Today I bring you my conversation with host of the The Money, Career & Motherhood Podcast, Janice Scholl. Janice has made an entire career out of talking about money and business. She found her purpose when she began mentoring female entrepreneurs in 2012. Today, we define how value-based budgeting varies from a typical budget. The budget is designed to help people have the money to spend it on the things they want to. It shouldn’t feel like a restrictor but an enabler. Changing your family’s financial future requires a change in behavior and there’s no better time to start than today.-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityConnect with Janice:InstagramPodcast: Raising Middle School GirlsEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

Constant chaos in our lives leads to stress/overwhelm and, typically, everyone around us suffers too. I'm so excited about today’s interview with Jenna Hermans, the author of Chaos to Calm: Five Ways Busy Parents Can Break Free from Overwhelm. She’s an expert on helping parents move away from chaos and into calmness so that we can all create intentional lives that allow each member of the family to thrive. In this conversation, we talk about the "Five Pillars of Calm", the importance of communication, how Jenna has calmed her chaos and more.-----------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityBook: Why We Sleep by Matthew WalkerPodcast: Dr. Matthew Walker: The Science & Practice of Perfecting Your Sleep | Huberman Lab Podcast #31Connect with Jenna:WebsiteInstagramBook: Chaos to CalmView the entire shownotes page.Enjoy this Podcast?Learning how you can get rid of clutter and live an intentional and purposeful life has never been this simple.

EP281: Too Many Clothes, Nothing to Wear with Erin Flynn (@cladwellapp)

“I have too many clothes but nothing to wear.” It’s a common phrase that many of us think as we peer into our closets. But is there a solution? It’s my personal belief that decluttering can absolutely solve this problem; however, I think there are even more ways we can address this mentality. Joining me today to help find solutions to closet overwhelm is founder of the Cladwell app, Erin Flynn. As a working mom with limited time, Erin understands the challenges that many of us face when it comes to our wardrobes. She believes in the concept of "less is more," helping people refine their personal style, shop smarter, and get creative with their existing wardrobe. Erin emphasizes the importance of normalizing outfit repeats, living intentionally, shopping from our own closets, and, of course, clearing the clutter. The episode delves into these topics and more!-----------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityBeneficial Resource: Rich Roll Podcast | Adam Grant Podcast | Brene Brown PodcastConnect with Erin:InstagramWebsiteApp: Cladwell AppEnjoy this Podcast?Learning how you can get rid of clutter and live an intentional and purposeful life has never been this simple.

EP280: Am I a Minimalist Because I'm Surrounded By MAXIMALISTS? with Melissa Risenhoover

If you’ve been pursuing a minimalist lifestyle for awhile now, have you ever thought to yourself, “Am I a minimalist because I’m surrounded by maximalists?” In other words, am I able to enjoy the lavishness of someone else’s lifestyle without having to live that way in my day-to-day? The thought crossed my mind a few years back and I knew I wanted to discuss the idea on a future episode. Joining me for this conversation is Melissa Risenhoover. Fun fact about this episode: Melissa and I actually recorded at the beginning of 2021. We put the release date on hold due to Melissa’s move to Shanghai. When I finally went back to look for the recording, I thought I had lost it only to discover it last week on an old computer. After listening back, I knew this was a sentiment I wanted to share with all of you. There isn’t necessarily a conclusion we come to during the conversation, I do believe it’s something each person must conclude for themselves. If anything, I hope this dialogue gives you something to think about as you process why minimalism is important to you and your family. -----------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityConnect with Melissa:YoutubeEnjoy this Podcast?Learning how you can get rid of clutter and live an intentional and purposeful life has never been this simple.

EP279: Nurturing Little Explorers: Cultivating the Animal Adventurer with Susie Spikol

Joining me today is a guest who truly embodies the spirit of being an animal adventurer, Susie Spikol. Susie is a naturalist, educator, and author of the captivating book, "The Animal Adventurer's Guide."If you're an animal lover who enjoys following animal tracks and chasing fireflies, then this episode is for you. Susie will discuss the importance of connecting kids to nature in the digital age, her love for animals with "bad reputations," and share tips for nighttime animal observation using a flashlight.With over 30 years of experience as a naturalist and educator, Susie knows the activities that kids and families love. This episode is all about practicality. With Susie's invaluable reminders, we can rediscover the enchantment of the world right outside our doorstep.“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it.” -David Sobel-----------------------About SusieSusie Spikol is a naturalist at the Harris Center for Conservation Education in Hancock, New Hampshire. If you ask Spikol her favorite animal, she will not be able to choose. She has spent her entire life loving animals, especially the ones that have “bad reputations” like the petite but venomous short-tailed shrew and the famously stinky striped skunk. In her three-decade long career, Spikol helps people of all ages fall in love with and connect with the natural world. From going on midnight owling expeditions and early morning bird walks to catching frogs and following bear tracks on snowshoes, she spends many of her workdays outside in search of animals and their signs. Known by some as the Princess of Poop, Spikol’s award-worthy scat collection has been the talk of her small town when it was once showcased at the town library. When she isn’t at work leading people of all ages on nature walks or in her office sorting her scat collection, she spends time writing about nature and can be found outside with her three children and two dogs having their own wild adventures.Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityMinimalist Resource: GoGrowKids (The Push Driver)Beneficial Resource: All things David SobelBook: Childhood and Nature: Design Principles for Educators by David SobelBook: Wild Play by David SobelBook: Beyond Ecophobia: Reclaiming the Heart in Nature Education by David SobelCan't Stop Talking About: Gnomes!Book: Gnomes by Wil HuygenConnect with Susie:InstagramWebsiteBook: The Animal Adventurer's Guide by Susie SpikolEnjoy this Podcast?Learning how you can get rid of clutter and live an intentional and purposeful life has never been this simple.

EP278: Rethinking Intelligence: Challenging Misconceptions and Embracing Our Potential with Dr. Rina Bliss

In today's episode, I speak with Dr. Rina Bliss, a leading expert on the nature of intelligence and its cultural significance. Dr. Bliss, who is a professor of sociology at Rutgers University, has spent over a decade researching the misconceptions surrounding intelligence and its assessment. In her latest book, Rethinking Intelligence: A Radical New Understanding of Our Human Potential, Dr. Bliss challenges the conventional wisdom that intelligence is a fixed, innate trait determined solely by genetics. Drawing on cutting-edge research, as well as her own experiences as a mother and a sociologist, she argues that intelligence is a complex and dynamic process shaped by a range of factors, including stress, connection, play, and mindfulness. Join us as we delve into the fascinating world of intelligence and its cultural significance. Dr. Bliss' hope is that this episode challenges us to rethink what we know about ourselves, our children and our human potential.-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityConnect with Dr. Rina Bliss:WebsiteInstagramTik TokShow Notes for EP278: Rethinking IntelligenceEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP276: “My Family of 6 Lives in an 830 Sq Ft House BY CHOICE—And We Have No Regrets” with Andee Martineu

In the midst of the pandemic, while everyone in tiny apartments was looking to trade up to a larger home, Andee Martineau did the opposite. She and her husband sold their 7,000 square foot home in Arizona and moved their family of six (plus two kids in college) into a cabin by a lake in Utah. Andee went from having a two-story home with two kitchens and two laundry rooms to a two-story cabin with only two bedrooms and one bathroom. Yes: one bathroom.They weren’t broke, rather worn down. The fairy tale is the big house, but the reality was that Andee spent all of her time cleaning the 15+-room home, keeping up with 1.5 acres of land, managing the pool and raking the lawn. She desired for more time with family, but with all that space sometimes they were so spread out in the house - she'd had no idea who was doing what...In this episode, Andee will be sharing her story of how she made this decision, what inspired her to choose this path, and how it has impacted her family's life. She will talk about the benefits and challenges of living with less, including spending more quality time with her family and lightening the mental load that comes with having too much stuff.-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityBeneficial Resource: The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk M.D.Beneficial Resource: Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E.

EP275: Unlocking the Secrets of Effective Parent-Child Communication with Emily Kline

In today's episode, I sat down with Dr. Emily Kline to discuss how Motivational Interviewing (MI) can be used to facilitate healthy communication between parents and young adults. Often used in healthcare settings, MI is a communication style that focuses on making positive changes, such as reducing drug or alcohol use, taking medications regularly, and other lifestyle improvements. However, Dr. Kline has adapted these techniques to help parents communicate with their young adult children more effectively. In this insightful conversation, Dr. Kline explains how parents can build stronger relationships with their children by using the principles of MI. By approaching difficult conversations with curiosity, asking good questions, listening carefully, repeating back what you heard, and giving advice effectively, parents can create a partnership with their children that fosters mutual respect and understanding. Join us as we explore these important techniques for making hard talks easier.-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityBeneficial Resource: The Good Life by Robert Waldinger Connect with Emily:Website: Dremilykline.comInstagramShow Notes for EP275: Unlocking the Secrets of Effective Parent-Child CommunicationEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP273: Giving Your Kids Clothing a Second "Life" with Hand Me Up

As parents, we all know how quickly our children outgrow their clothes, and how tempting it can be to simply throw them away and buy new ones. But with the life cycle of kids' clothes being much shorter compared to adult garments, this can lead to a significant amount of waste. In 2018, the EPA reported, 17 million tons of textile waste ended up in landfills, compared to the 2.5 million tons that were recycled, it's clear that their work is more important than ever. That's where small business (and my guests today), Hand Me Up comes in! Hand Me Up's mission is to promote a circular approach focused on reuse and repair, which is key to extending the life of textiles. Join me for this interview with founders, Kara and Nicole to learn more about their inspiration, mission, and impact. -------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityDiane's Resource: How to Sustainably Decorate Your HomeConnect with Hand Me Up:Website: https://handmeupshop.com/InstagramFacebookShow Notes for EP273: Giving Your Kids Clothing a Second "Life"Enjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

Miles is known as ‘the listening guru’ and will discuss how critical that listening is to be a parent and shares tips on how to improve your listening skills. -------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityDiane's Resource: Simplify Magazine (March 2023 Issue: Possessions) - Gain lifetime access for $7.50 here!Beneficial Resource: Book: The Tao of Coaching by Max LandsbergConnect with Christine:Get Christine’s Book: equipt-people.com/get-the-bookChristine’s Website: equipt-people.comChristine’s InstagramShow Notes for EP272: What Is It Costing You NOT to Listen?Enjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

Have you ever observed the significant impact that can result from performing small, routine tasks, often referred to as rituals?

EP268 (Part One): Slowing Down Family Life: Embracing Simple Living in a Fast-Paced World with Jillian Hankins

In this episode, I delve into the topic of slow and simple living with my guest, Jillian Hankins. My conversation with Jillian felt like catching up with an old friend. We spoke for over ninety minutes. In the first half, we explored the significance of slowing down, even when it's challenging to quiet our inner to-do lists. We also discussed the common tendency to claim we live slowly while still getting swept up in the culture of busyness. The second half (that will air on Friday) focuses on Jillian’s passion to live according to natures rhythms/seasons. To live seasonally is more than what we eat, but reaches down into the very marrow of our days, how we move through the hours that we've been given with our families!-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityDiane's Resource: Toy Trader App | Toy Trader App InstagramConnect with Jillian:Seasonal Guides: https://www.jillianmargaretwellness.com/shopWebsite: https://www.jillianmargaretwellness.comFree Gifts: https://www.jillianmargaretwellness.com/freebiesInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/jillianmargaretwellness/Show Notes for Slowing Down: Embracing the Simple Riches of the SeasonEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

Setting your intentions to get regular quality sleep takes some work. From changing lifestyle habits to being mindful of your sleep hygiene, there are a lot of factors to consider in the quest to get better rest – including creating a tranquil space to slip into deep, restorative sleep. However, the bedroom tends to be a catchall for the day, including discarded clothes, bags, shoes, accessories, a workspace and more. Can all this clutter disrupt your sleep? Probably not – but it can disrupt your peace of mind. This is where Terry Craelle, RN, sleep expert and representative of the Better Sleep Council comes in! Today Terry answers the questions: Does a messy/disorganized bedroom actually affect one’s sleep? What are some other tips for “tidying” your sleep rituals? What's sleep hygiene? If someone is overwhelmed with all the advice, what’s *one thing* they can start doing tonight to tidy their sleep habits? Terry’s goal is to share clever hacks for decluttering your bedroom and reclaiming your zone of relaxation to sleep soundly!-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityConnect with Terry:Instagram | FacebookBetter Sleep Council (BSC)Show Notes for Declutter Your Bedroom (and Reclaim Tranquility)Enjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP263: Old Fashioned on Purpose with Jill Winger

As young newlyweds, Jill Winger and her husband asked themselves one question that forever changed their lives: “Why do we have to do it like everyone else?” They set out on a quest for the answer, one path leading them to impulse-buy a neglected farmstead 40 miles away from the nearest grocery store. Little did they know that an old homestead would create such a vast shift in the trajectory of their lives. They were now pursuing a path of homesteading. Jill is the founder of The Prairie Homestead, a cornerstone of the modern homesteading movement since 2010. She is passionate about teaching old-fashioned skills, and encouraging a more thoughtful, time-honored approach to modern life. Today Jill discusses how to begin homesteading with a small amount of land, how culture romanticizes chores and chickens, how she relaxes with so much daily responsibility and more… -------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityDiane's Resource: Mel Robbins Podcast: Feel Like Giving Up…Podcast Episode: The Daily Stoic (Episode How Country Living Can Improve Your Life)Podcast: Sustainable Dish podcastBeneficial Resource: Can’t Stop Talking About: Beef Tallow (Toups and Co)Connect with Jill:WebsiteInstagramCookbook: The Prairie Homestead CookbookPodcast: Old Fashioned on PurposeShow Notes for EP263: Old Fashioned on PurposeEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP259: Create Anyway: Pursuing Creativity in Motherhood with Ashlee Gadd

Mothers often feel guilt when they pursue something that takes time away from their children, especially when that something could be deemed less important than parenting. Writer Ashlee Gadd felt the same way when she was navigating being a first-time mother, exhausted yet yearning to be creative. Now the mother of three, Gadd created Coffee + Crumbs, an online community for women wanting to express themselves through storytelling, and intentionally finds time to be creative. In her new book, Create Anyway: The Joy of Pursuing Creativity in the Margins of Motherhood Gadd gives readers permission to pursue their creative gifts alongside motherhood.

Bonus Episode: Finding "It" (An Intentional Parenting Strategy) with Sandra Stanley

Am I getting parenting right? Most parents at any and every stage, find themselves asking this question.

If so, it’s time to recognize that you may need a different approach. Here to discuss flexible goal setting is host of the About Progress podcast, Monica Packer. On this episode, you’ll hear how Monica overcame a perfectionist mindset through flexibility and consistency - realizing that the two don’t compete with one another, rather they make each other possible.

EP252: Let's Declutter: Negative Self-Talk with Julia Ubbenga

Who do you talk to the most? Maybe you’re thinking: “my spouse, my kids, my friends, or my coworkers.” This may surprise you but the answer is none of the above. On a daily basis, the person you talk to the most is, without question, yourself. We each have around 70,000 self-talk thoughts a day. And here’s the problem—80% of them are negative. When we hear a steady barrage of negative words from the person we talk to by far the most, life becomes anything but simple. Disempowering thoughts (I’m a bad mom, I’m a mess, I’m so overwhelmed, This day is terrible), especially when repeated often, drag us down and complicate our lives. These thoughts distract us from the present moment, keep us from meeting our goals and stop us from fully living our lives; however, what if we could apply the idea of decluttering to this area of life? Joining me today to encourage us as we ‘declutter’ negative self-talk is Julia Ubbenga, voice behind the popular social media account and blog, Rich in What Matters. Today Julia will take us through her process of forming better habits around the way we speak to ourselves. -------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityMinimalist Resource: My Hygge Home by Meik WikingDr. Amen’s “ANT Catching” tool: https://ahha.org/selfhelp-articles/ant-therapy/Dr. Amen bookArticle “Three things to say to your child every day”The Hope EffectIG Live with Becker: https://www.instagram.com/p/ClHLfG_AwlB/Connect with Julia:website: https://richinwhatmatters.com/instagramShow Notes for EP252: Let's Declutter: Negative Self-TalkEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP250: Let's Simplify: Travel with Angela Lyons

Angela Lyons is a minimalist mom and avid traveler who loves to chat about finding balance, slowing down, and living an intentional life. Her family has undergone a few significant changes over the last few years at the hands of minimalism which has allowed them to embrace what is most important to them. As a part of this, Angela extensively decluttered her items, sold her house, elected to go part-time at her company to spend more time with the girls, and packed up the family for a 3-month trip to Peru. She is passionate about minimalism as a means to achieve her family's goals - which includes a bigger focus on travel, and less of a focus on all the "stuff". Today she’ll be sharing her story and best tips for simplifying your travel experience.-------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityPrevious Episode: EP236: Hacks for Family Travel with Chris HutchinsBeneficial Resource: Traveling with Kids Worldwide Group, Families Who Love to Travel Group, Travel with Kids GroupConnect with Angela:FacebookInstagram Show Notes for EP249: Simplifying TravelEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

Joining me today are relationship experts and founders of Marriage365, Casey and Meygan Caston. Casey and Meygan Caston were the couple least likely to succeed in their marriage. After meeting in college, they fell in love fast and then said I do. But after only three years, they were headed straight for divorce. Their relationship had fallen apart. Communication was lost. Their finances crumbled in the midst of the chaos and the worst part? They placed blame on each other for their bad marriage. But one thing they did agree on, they both didn't want to become another American divorce statistic. The Castons began searching for ways to do marriage right. They surrounded themselves with healthy couples, experts, books, and got therapy to make a relational transformation. But they admit that it was a long and really difficult process to find resources that were affordable and convenient, so they decided to do something about it and founded Marriage365.

EP244: The Open Air Life with Linda Åkeson McGurk

Just like there is slow food, slow parenting, and slow entertainment, friluftsliv is a form of slow nature. An outdoorsy cousin of hygge, friluftsliv ('free-loofts-liv') is what Nordic people do outside all day before they cozy up in front of the fireplace with their wool socks on and a cup of hot cocoa. The concept is humble, but revolutionary: Live simply. Go outside often. Be kind to the earth. Friluftsliv can be as simple as an evening walk around the neighborhood or as advanced as a multiday backpacking expedition in the remote wilderness, or anything in between. Joining me today is Swedish-American writer, Linda McGurk. You likely know Linda from her bestselling book, There’s No Such Thing As Bad Weather.

EP234: Raising Children to Become Critical Thinkers with Julie Bogart

Education is not solely about acquiring information and skills across subject areas, but also about understanding how and why we believe what we do. At a time where our online capabilities allow us infinite information and opinions, you can understand how parents (and teachers) worry about how students will interpret what they read and see. But how do we encourage them to examine different perspectives? How do we teach them the skills they need to become discerning adults? Joining me today is author, Julie Bogart who draws from more than 20 years of homeschooling experience and creating curricula. In this conversation, Julie offers insight and practical tips to help children at every stage of development to grow in their ability to explore the world around them. -------------------------------Links Discussed in This EpisodeOrder a Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living and Parenting with SimplicityBook: A Place to Belong: Celebrating Diversity and Kinship in the Home and Beyond by Amber O’Neal JohnstonConnect with Julie:Facebook InstagramBrave WriterBook: Raising Critical Thinkers by Julie BogartShow Notes for EP234: Raising Children to Become Critical ThinkersEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

[REPLAY] EP191: Reassessing Your School Year Routines

Order (or Review) Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with SimplicityThere are two times each year that always encourage me to re-evaluate my routine. The first is at the beginning of a new year and the second is the beginning of a new school year. The back-to-school season (or any change in seasons, for that matter) is a great time to re-evaluate our daily and weekly routines to make sure they’re serving us. Most of our children are back in school (and likely have been for several weeks), so now is the perfect time to reassess what is working and what isn't.

EP230: Simple Ways to Encourage More Play in Your Family with Anna Yudina

As most of you know, a huge issue parents currently face is a sharp increase in screen time for children. In fact, a recent study by JAMA Pediatrics found that children’s recreational use of screens (not including time spent online for virtual classes) nearly doubled during the pandemic. Moreover, the study linked higher screen usage to poorer mental health and greater stress among teens. I, myself, acknowledge that screens themselves aren’t bad but strive to balance screen time with playtime. Joining me today to highlight the importance of screen free play and what parents can do to engage their children is Anna Yudina of the Genius of Play (whose mission is to provide families with the information and inspiration they need to make play an important part of their child’s day).

EP207: Swedish Death Cleaning: Morbid or Mandatory? with Emily McDermott

Swedish Death Cleaning, or döstädning, is removing unnecessary items and preparing your home so that your loved ones aren’t burdened by them after you pass away. While the book that made it famous in 2017, The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson, focuses mostly on people who are in their sixties or “when the time is coming closer for you to leave the planet”, there is no reason why we can’t start today as younger moms who don’t want to burden our spouse/partners and loved ones. One question: If you were to die tomorrow, what would your loved ones have to do? Here to walk us through the practicals of this question is writer and fellow minimalist, Emily McDermott. Emily will answer questions such as: Who is death cleaning for? How long is this process? Should we tell our families? What are the lessons we can learn from this culture? And more…----Show Notes for EP207: Swedish Death Cleaning: Morbid or Mandatory?Enjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP204: The Power of Fun with Catherine Price

We’ll be chatting all about the ‘power of fun’ on today’s episode! In our always-on, productivity-addicted lifestyles, we tend to think of the pursuit of fun as being indulgent or childish. We claim not to have time for it even as we spend hours a day engaging in what journalist and screen/life balance expert Catherine Price calls “Fake Fun”—binging Netflix, scrolling through Twitter, or indulging our FOMO on Instagram, all in hopes of filling some of the emptiness we feel inside. Through years of research, Price has learned the truth: far from being frivolous or a distraction, fun—or, as she calls it, True Fun—is actually the secret to achieving our goals.----Show Notes for EP204: The Power of FunEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP196: Becoming Intentional with Money Management with Erin Skye Kelly

I usually don’t share guest quotes prior to the interview but my guest today, author, Erin Skye Kelly said something that really stuck with me, “Debt Is Clutter.” Debt is clutter and it leads to a lack of freedom. It was this lesson that I had to learn before I began to pursue the purging of material things. Intentionality with my finances came first and the clutter followed.

EP195: Feeling Confident in Your Capsule Wardrobe with Kim Hancher

On today’s episode, I speak with style coach, Kim Hancher. Kim teaches women how to create their unique style, dress their body type, and curate a capsule wardrobe so that they feel confident doing something you have to do every day, get dressed. In this episode, she discusses how to consciously curate a capsule wardrobe and (beyond that) how to wear more of the clothes you already have in your closet right now by incorporating her tried and true style concepts. Before we get into the conversation, I’ll leave you with this quote from fashion and beauty writer, Rae Ritchie, she says, “It’s a misconception to think that minimalism and fashion are incompatible. It’s still possible to remain up to date with major trends and have a small capsule wardrobe. You just have to be judicious in your choices. Treat how you dress as a fun creative hobby, a chance to play. With a foundation of versatile basics, you can easily drop in a few items that catch your eye.” I’d have to agree.----Show Notes for EP195: Feeling Confident in Your Capsule WardrobeEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP194: Toy Rotation Made Simple with Melissa Corriveau

If you’re a regular listener, you’ll have heard me talk about decision fatigue or overwhelm.

EP190: Outsourcing: Fewer Responsibilities, More Meaning with Rachel Luther

Order (or Review) Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with SimplicityAs minimalists, our lifestyles are characterized by the pursuit of simplicity and freedom from possessions and consumerism. That said, sometimes we find ourselves weighed down and dealing with tasks or responsibilities that we can’t manage. Sadly, there are only twenty-four hours in the day, so the question becomes: how can we pursue freedom without feeling buried along the way? The answer may be outsourcing! But how exactly do we outsource as minimalists and what about costs (or the fact that I tend to be a bit of a control freak!) Answering these questions (and more) is entrepreneur, Rachel Luther. Rachel has spent the last 10+ years learning what it means to minimize her tasks and responsibilities so each "yes" has the greatest impact, whether it’s for her family, in her business, or as an actor. She was a virtual assistant before people knew what the term meant, and she has learned that outsourcing - in business or at home – isn’t merely hiring a VA. It requires creativity as you prioritize your passions and free your brain of the mental clutter and responsibilities taking time away from your true skills and passions. I can’t wait for you to hear this one! ----Show Notes for EP190: Outsourcing: Fewer Responsibilities, More MeaningEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

Join me today as I speak with author, Jenna Helwig. We’ll discuss how to simplify dinnertime so you can spend less time in the kitchen while still enjoying delicious meals. As I was flipping through Jenna’s new cookbook, the chapter titles resonated with me: Bare Minimum Time (30 minutes or less); Bare Minimum Ingredients (7 ingredients or less, including salt and olive oil); Bare Minimum Hands-On Time (slow-cooker and Instant Pot meals); Bare Minimum Clean-Up (one-pot/sheet pan/skillet meals); and Bare Minimum Sides (super-simple vegetables, salads, and grains so you can feel good about serving healthy, well-rounded dinners). Jenna’s advice for cooking is actually to do less: to pare back, to embrace some store-bought shortcuts, to eliminate fuss, and, in the process, extra dirty dishes.----Show Notes for EP188: Bare Minimum DinnersEnjoy this Podcast?Post a review and share it! If you enjoyed tuning into this podcast, then do not hesitate to write a review.

EP187: Being Present IS Winning with Sarah Bragg

In this day and age, it can be difficult to truly feel present in motherhood. We have so many roles we’re juggling, schedules to manage, self-care to maintain (not to mention remembering little details - such as what to add to the grocery store list or that school pickup is early on Friday.) The question is: how do we manage presence when it feels like we’re pulled in various ways? Joining me today to talk through this topic is author, Sarah Bragg. Sarah wrote about this topic (and more) in her recent book, A Mother’s Guide to Raising Herself. Today we’ll be discussing how to cultivate presence: how can we challenge ourselves to be more present in the moment without needing to document everything on Instagram/social media? How we can be more present as mothers, wives and friends?

While some of this screen time may serve an educational purpose, there's no way that most kids need that much of it. As parents, it' can be tough to swap screen time for outdoor time but the benefit(s) are so worth the challenge. Here to encourage us in this area is creator of the movement, 1000 Hours Outside (which urges parents to get their children outside for one thousand hours each year), Ginny Yurich.

Bonus Episode: Social Media, Mental Health & Intentionality with Tara Clark (@ModernMomProbs)

Order Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity----In today’s bonus episode with Tara Clark (@modernmomprobs), we discuss intentionality and mental health - specifically when it comes to social media. Modern technology is not going to change (if anything, it’ll only capture more areas of our lives.) It’s up to us to MODIFY our behavior. While social media can provide an escape, connect us to friends across the globe and become a useful resource for income, it can quickly become an addiction that takes us away from our priorities, and most importantly, our children. It’s something most of us realize but have a hard time actively combating. What do you do to set boundaries and protect mental health in this area? Show Notes for Bonus Episode: Social Media, Mental Health & IntentionalityEnjoy this Podcast?Learning how you can get rid of clutter and live an intentional and purposeful life has never been this simple.

EP179: Creating an Eco-Friendly Playroom with Rachel Classi

Order Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity----Any family with children will experience their fair share of toys throughout the years. It’s inevitable that some will slip in that have a short longevity; however, being intentional in this area isn’t as hard as it seems and simple strategies can help foster diverse play experiences for children without filing our playroom with junk. Join me today as I talk with founder of Tiny Earth Toys, Rachel Classi. She’ll discuss scientific studies that discuss the benefits of minimal toys in the playroom, how the choices we make about what toys to buy impact our child's play and the environment, what we know about how the toy industry is playing a role in the plastic crisis and tips for parents about how to take the power struggle out of gifting to align with your family values.Show Notes for EP179: Creating an Eco-Friendly PlayroomEnjoy this Podcast?Learning how you can get rid of clutter and live an intentional and purposeful life has never been this simple.
