Ep. 3.5 Joshua Becker on Simplifying with Families

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.

Luckily I’ve got best-selling author Joshua Becker from Becoming Minimalist on the podcast to help give us some inspiration and step-by-step guidance on how to jump on the decluttering train this Spring.

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. 3.1 Cait Flanders on Money Healing + Being a Mindful Consumer

How would your life be different if you had a healthier relationship with money? What if you were more intentional about what you brought into your life? As we all recover, especially financially, from the holidays, now is the perfect time to do a bit of healing around money and our habits moving forward. 

So to kick off a brand new season of the podcast, I have Cait Flanders, bestselling author of the book The Year of Less, with me to talk about her refreshing take on being more mindful when it comes to money and beyond.

We talk about why money conversations are hard, how to avoid the money shame and defensiveness, how to celebrate money wins, what being a mindful consumer is and how to do it, the deep work that happens after you change negative habits, the importance of getting outside and connecting with nature, and more.

Ep. 2.6: The Power of Travel

Travel is commonly viewed as an escape, a luxury, and sometimes even a burden. But to me, traveling is a vital part of being a part of the human race. Motivated by my recent travels to Peru, the topic of travel is fresh in my mind. And it's a topic I'm very passionate about if you can't already tell. 

Maybe you feel the same way, but to help you think about travel a little bit differently or perhaps give you some permission to listen to your own wanderlust whisperings, I’ve come up with a little list I call 'The 3 Gets and 3 Gives of Travel' list - three things you’ll get out of it and three things you get to give, or in other words, three reasons why the world needs you to travel. I think you'll dig it.

Ep. 30 Self Care for Mental Health Part 2

This week’s episode is a continuation of last week’s conversation all about the important and complex topic of mental health. If you missed it, I recommend taking a listen HERE before you sit down with this one, so you’ll have more context of where I’m coming from and what points were already made. 

Last week was more of an overview of the mental health issue and what we as a community can do about it. And in this week's Part 2, I dig into more of the nitty gritty of how you can tend to your own mental health needs with my top tips and things to keep in mind as you brave your own wilderness.

Ep. 29 Self Care for Mental Health Part 1

My personal self care journey began shortly after I was diagnosed with depression in my teens. And my path to heal and maintain that part of myself is the substance the powers what I bring to the world, including through my work and through this very podcast. 

The subject of mental health is so near and dear to my heart that honestly, I'm a bit nervous to talk about it in this format. But with all that is going on, with so many people out there that suffer alone or don’t know how to help, I feel like it would be a disservice to keep sitting on the sidelines in this arena. 

So, I’m going to be taking the next two episodes to talk about the timely and timeless topic of mental health, my personal journey with it, the stigma around it, how you can really help others, and how you can use self care to help yourself.

This episode (part 1) is all about the issue at large and how we as a collective community can help each other. The following episode (part 2) will cover simple self care practices specific for mental health, including thoughts on using or not using medication, how to tune in when you fear what you might hear, the concept of a good day and bad day routine and more.
