Decluttering, simplifying, intentional living. All sounds like a great idea, right, but it can also seem daunting and overwhelming. Especially if you share a home with a partner and even more so with children.

Take a listen as we talk about how to simplify as a family and how that can bond you together, what to do when simplifying gets hard and emotional, how decluttering can make space for what really matters like our faith and real connection with our loved ones, and so much more.

Ep. 3.4 Making Time When You Have No Time

Time. We have turned time into a scarcity, a luxury, and even an adversary. But yet it’s just hanging around, doing the same old thing at the same old pace since the beginning of, well, time. So why does it take so many forms? Why does it seem like a fickle trickster, messing with our concept of what time actually is? What if the problem is actually us and our brilliant human minds?

This week on the podcast, in honor of springing forward this Sunday, I revisit the topic of good 'ol father time. Yes, I've talked about it before on the podcast, but not having enough time remains to be the number one obstacle that keeps people from maintaining a self-care practice.

Take a listen to this week's episode to hear my favorite ways to shift your relationship with time. Let Father Time be your friend, not your foe.
