#164 - The Summer Meal Formula

I’m not saying I fixed summer cooking because that would be stupid, but I think I found an approach that will be pretty awesome, especially if you’re three weeks into hot weather no school everyone home cooking and losing your mind a little.

#163 - When to Relax the Rules

Summer is a season of relaxation, of later bedtimes and loungy days, but we’ve also kind of already been in a weird season of pseudo-relaxation and later bedtimes and loungy days because of COVID-19. It’s safe to say that easing into summer rhythms is a little complicated right now. Helpful Companion Links Today’s episode is sponsored by The Lazy Genius Merch Store! Get your Lazy Genius gear here. I first mentioned Daily Sheets in How to Lazy Genius Kid Chores (episode 117) and I misspoke in the episode by calling it The Lazy Genius Plans a Day. It’s really The Lazy Genius Weekly Plan. Preorder your copy of The Lazy Genius Way out August 11, 2020 (and get fun preorder bonuses!). Download a transcript of this episode.

#162 - A Peek Inside The Lazy Genius Way

This is a very exciting and surreal episode for me to share because in case you didn’t know I wrote a book, and today is the first real day that I’m going to tell you about what is inside! On August 11th, you’ll get to read those words if you want, and in this episode I’ll actually share a couple of ways you can read those words sooner, but for now, I’m going to tell you why I decided to write a book, what my writing rhythm was when I was writing it, how I wrote 60,000 words that were never used, what kept me from quitting because I almost did a couple of times, and what’s inside the book.

#159 - The Magic of Closing Ceremonies

It can feel like our closing ceremonies are shot because of how things are within the setting of a pandemic, and that’s a very real thing. I’ve said it several times in episodes about a variety of topics, but there’s a lot to grieve right now. But here’s an important thing to remember: the magic of a closing ceremony isn’t really about what you do but that you just do something. Stuff Mentioned This episode is sponsored by All Things Reconsidered by Knox McCoy, which is available on June 2. Want a refresher on opening and closing ceremonies? Start here: Plan Your Opening Ceremony (119), The Lazy Genius Welcomes Fall (70), and The Lazy Genius Conquers Holiday Overwhelm (36).

#158 - Staying In Touch When You Can’t Touch

Right now, we’re separated from each other in ways we never have been before, but there will be other times when we want to stay in touch with people we love when we’re far away from them, whether it’s across the country or six feet apart. So today, how do we stay in touch when we can’t actually touch? Helpful Companion Links Myquillyn Smith, aka The Nester, gave me the framework of “lovely limitations.” Her book, Cozy Minimalist Home (affiliate link), is my go-to Christmas gift for my kids’ teachers. Instagram is where I hang out most on social media, and I’d love for you to join me there. You can find me @thelazygenius. P.S. Here’s that post about Annie’s birthday party.
