    The Ultimate Guide to Soup, Fall’s Coziest Food (with Bri McKoy)

    The Ultimate Guide to Soup, Fall’s Coziest Food (with Bri McKoy)

    On a chilly fall evening, is there anything cozier than a warm, creamy bowl of soup? (Nope!) To welcome the coziest season of the year, we’re delighted to talk with foodie content creator and the Queen of Soup, Bri McKoy! 👩‍🍳 Today Bri dishes on the Instant Pot Lemon Chicken & Potato Soup that’s become one of Emily’s go-to’s, her pumpkin chili that’s perfect for Game Day or a Tuesday night, her pizza soup (!?), and so many more. Bri also shares her genius tip for shredding chicken in a snap (seriously, you won’t believe how easy it is), the soup that’s always a winner for potlucks and meal trains, and even how to keep your fridge and pantry stocked for a quick but delicious meal in a pinch. Grab a spoon—soup’s on, y’all!

    Four Ways Paper Planners Improve Life (at Work + Home!)

    It’s one of our favorite weeks of the year: Launch Week! 🎉 As beautiful as our Simplified Planners and products are, we get that you may be wondering: Why use a paper planner in a digital world? We’re glad you asked! Emily put on her research cap to find out—and what she discovered will absolutely floor you. Today Emily’s sharing four ways that paper planners can help you streamline your life at work and at home. Because it turns out, working on paper is kind of like a superpower for your brain (because it helps your brain remember more, minimize distraction, and even enhance creativity!). And couldn’t we all use these superpowers every now and again?

    Kids & Phones: What’s the Right Balance? (with Sissy Goff)

    Kids & Phones: What’s the Right Balance? (with Sissy Goff)

    Getting a phone is a huge step for a kid (and their parent!), and there’s a lot to figure out: what’s the right age to get one? How can we help them use it in a healthy way? Social media, or no? Emily’s been asking these questions herself  since her sixth-grader Brady got his first phone a few weeks ago. And to get some advice, she’s turned to child and adolescent counselor Sissy Goff! Sissy’s a favorite around here (her episode on helping kids manage anxiety in Episode 30 is one of our most downloaded episodes ever), and this week she and Emily talk about how to help kids create a healthy relationship with technology. Sissy shares a ton of great info in this episode, including: how to build healthy boundaries around phones, which apps keep kids physically safe and mentally well when using their phones, and how to soothe hurt feelings when friends have tech privileges they don’t.

Consider this your “get your life ready for fall” checklist! Emily’s dishing out quick and easy tips to get your closets, kitchen, decor, outdoors and more prepped before your schedule gets packed with all the fun fall things (or, for you brave people who live where it snows, before the first flakes come down).

    During Transitions, Go Easy On Your Kids–And Yourself

    During Transitions, Go Easy On Your Kids–And Yourself

    Any shakeup to your routine—whether it’s a new school year, a new job, a big promotion, a birth, a death, a surgery, a divorce, whatever—requires you to pour a lot from your well. And you know what that means? To care for yourself, you need to restore your well with some rest and a heaping dose of grace. Today Emily’s talking about how to navigate seasons of change, whether you’re starting middle school or a brand-new phase of your life. And she reminds us that no matter where we are, we can find belonging and even create it ourselves. Because we’re all going through change, in some form or another, and there’s so much strength in finding safe harbor with other people who have learned, in their own way, how to navigate the waters of change too.
