#175 - How to Create a Cozy Space

We’re about halfway into September, and even though temperatures and even seasons depending on your hemisphere are different right now, something about life shifts when we hit September. And whenever I hit a shift, the importance of my environment is more obvious. Creating a space that feels safe and cozy, whatever that looks like for you, is important for your mental health. This episode will give you steps on how to do that, but the important thing here is to name the importance of your environment when you’re in the middle of something long or at the start of something new. Stuff Mentioned Preorder Myquillyn Smith’s new book Welcome Home and claim your preorder bonuses before Tuesday, September 15th. Her other books in order of release are The Nesting Place and Cozy Minimalist Home. Myquillyn’s guest appearance on The Next Right Thing podcast hosted by the one and only Emily P. Freeman. Follow me over on Instagram to see my story highlight where I walked through my entire cozy home process. Download a transcript of this episode. *Books mentioned above are affiliate links.

#172 - Resurrecting Routines

A couple of days ago, I asked folks on Instagram what one word they would use to describe their current relationship with routines. There were very few positive words, words that would indicate that routines are working. Here’s what we’re going to do for the next few minutes. We need to examine our expectations of routine, reframe what routines actually are, and then give you a next step or two to resurrect them. Helpful Companion Links Leave a review on Apple Podcasts right here. Buy a copy of The Lazy Genius Way for yourself or a friend! Hear me and Erin Moon talk more about morning routines in a bonus episode from a few weeks ago. Other routine-themed LG resources you might find interesting: The Universal Path to Life-GIving Routine (blog post), Lazy Genius Morning Routine, Lazy Genius Evening Routine, Lazy Genius Cleaning Routine, and more.

#171 The Ten Things Saving My Life Right Now

I know that top ten lists can be a bit rote, but honestly, there’s something super life-giving for me personally to hear what other people are finding joy in. It gives me ideas of course, but more than that, it reminds me to pay attention to my own life and be even more intentional about nurturing the things in my day that give me a lot of joy. So I hope this list does that for you today! Stuff Mentioned In a turn of events that no one expected, least of all me, I’m a nail polish person. I ride or die for Olive & June nail polish. Having a summer meal formula is saving me this summer. I talk about that idea here and share my own here. I was influenced by Bri McKoy to get these joggers even though they cost around 80 dollars. For sweatpants. But my life is changed and here we are. My beloved Penny and Sparrow have a new album out. Download a transcript of this episode.
