    #198 - How to Lazy Genius Your To-Do List

    People have always had stuff to do, but let’s think about it. Our culture and lives have evolved to such a point where if we don’t write down what we have to do, we will in fact forget. Today, we will talk practically about how one can manage one’s to-do list, but I have a couple of bigger picture thoughts, too.

    #196 - How to Lazy Genius Adult Screen Time

    I love my iPhone. I love my apps. I love Instagram. I love it all! And because we love it, we’re on it a lot, and while that is not a universally bad thing, you might desire a better relationship with your smartphone. There are no universal rules or truths or any of it when it comes how you use your phone. You get to decide what matters. You get to decide how to do your own screen time, and I’m going to share some Lazy Genius principles that you can apply to make your phone enhance your life the way that you want it to.

    #195 - Creating Your Own Holiday When There’s Nothing To Look Forward To

    #195 - Creating Your Own Holiday When There’s Nothing To Look Forward To

    February and March struggle to bring the thunder. I mean, it’s just the way it is. We’re past the lovely winter holiday gauntlet, we’re past the energy around fresh starts in January, we’re still weeks away from spring break if you get a spring break and for sure months away from summer vacation. So we need something to look forward to. For real. So rather than just waiting for July or a vaccine or for any kind of gathering or celebration to count only when things are back to normal, we’re going to be proactive.

One of my favourite podcasts

What I love about this podcast is that it always leaves me with a good feeling, and more often than not a new perspective on things, whether it’s on cleaning my bathroom or making traditions with my family. Even if I don’t follow the advice or actually do anything, I’ve often found that her way of reframing things speaks to me. I would recommend this podcast to anyone who wants helpful tips on anything from meal planning to morning rituals delivered in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
