Minimal-ish is a podcast about minimalism...sort of. Your host, Desirae Endres, talks with guests about topics of realistic minimalism, motherhood, intentional living, and other things that matter.

The trend of minimalism has made it feel, at times, like a competition. Who can have the least? How many spoons should I have? This podcast is here to put minimalism in its place- as a tool that we can make work for us so we can make room in our days for what actually matters to us.

Your host, Desirae Endres, is a stay at home/ work at home mom and writer that believes that minimalism and having an uncluttered home environment can benefit everyone, but it doesn't look the same for everyone. She brings honesty and transparency to the conversation as an admittedly (formerly-ish) unorganized, messy and anxious person as she discusses topics of minimalism, intentional & creative living, motherhood, and more.

Life changing tips and advice

Thank you for all the life changing topics that are discussed in this podcast. A real eye opener for me. Realising that becoming a mum is a “season of life” and learning to accept the changes this wonderful experience brings on to us , accepting our body image and learning to implement meal planning and simplifying our lives more etc. Very helpful. Thank you.

Genuinely changing my life

I have become so excited by this podcast and the messages you give; my favourites so far are the episodes on boundaries and managing time. These shows have absolutely changed how I feel about my current life situation and about me and my worth. Motherhood and work and new stages with friends are difficult to manage sometimes but I’m aware now about my own needs too rather than just feeling I’m failing. I recommend these episodes to my friends to help them in their situations too. Thank you for sharing these messages (and for the Q&A sessions which I really love too). Keep up the great work, Katy in Scotland x

Brilliant!

Stumbled across this podcast when searching for thoughts on downsizing as a family. I’m really enjoying it. Minimalism, gentle parenting, Montessori, and all the podcast titles I’ve seen are all interests and practices and I’m looking forward to listening to your thoughts. Thank you.
