    3: Creating Calm & Clearing Clutter #1 – Simplify Your Calendar

    3: Creating Calm & Clearing Clutter #1 – Simplify Your Calendar

    On The Simplified Podcast, we want to give you practical tools to help you build a life you love. One of the ways we’ll do that is by helping you create calm and clear clutter from different parts of your life. And today, we’re asking you this: have the words, Gosh, I’m so stressed, rolled around your mind this week? We’ve all been there. We’re constantly working, loving, cleaning, caring, organizing, grocery shopping, and dealing with the minutiae that make up every single day—often without scheduling a break for ourselves. Our calendars are filled to the brim, every square scribbled with activities and commitments. But what if you decided to take an eraser and scrub some of those commitments off your calendar? What if you said no to a few things so you could give an enthusiastic yes to something else, like margin and rest for yourself, or more time with your family? Emily walks us through four steps to simplifying our schedules so that we can unapologetically declare what matters to us and learn to be fully present in the lives we’ve worked so hard to build with the people we so fiercely love.

    2: Simplifying “The Talk” with Your Kids – A Chat with Birds & Bees

    2: Simplifying “The Talk” with Your Kids – A Chat with Birds & Bees

    As kids grow up, parents have a lot of responsibility to walk them through hard conversations. And no conversation is as awkward as “The Talk.” Oh yes, that Talk—the one where your mom pulled you aside with hushed tones and anatomically correct drawings about your changing body that made you want to squirm right out of your chair. But you know what? The Talk doesn’t have to be the cringe-worthy conversation of yesteryear (insert *sigh of relief* here!). Emily’s joined by Mary Flo Ridley and Megan Michelson of Birds & Bees, who empower parents to have more purposeful conversations about sex. Mary Flo and Megan walk us through a few steps to simplify “The Talk” for kids at any age, and show us that children’s minds are like a sponge: we can fill them with information drip by drip, allowing their minds to expand gradually instead of giving them a firehose of information that’ll overwhelm them, or letting someone else be the one to fill the sponge. Two big takeaways from this conversation: every family’s message around sex is going to look different—and as a parent, you are the best person to be the loving truth-teller to your kids. You’ve got this!

    1: Where to Start When Everything Feels Hard

    1: Where to Start When Everything Feels Hard

    Welcome to the very first episode of The Simplified Podcast! Throughout the show, Emily will take you by the hand and help you think about some of the pressure points in your life—like overwhelm at home and work and in your relationships—and give you tactical tools to bring more calm and confidence into your days. Emily kicks off her brand-new podcast by laying all the cards on the table and asking: can we dare to build a life we love, even when life throws unimaginable challenges our way? We all worry about our families, and our careers, and our futures in the face of uncertainty, but none of us wants to spend every single day battling the anxiety monster. So how do we move forward when we feel stuck? Where do we start when everything feels hard?  Emily walks us through three steps for putting one foot in front of the other so we can step out of the anxiety keeping us frozen and into this brave truth: we may not have control of what happens to us, but we do have a choice about how we respond.

A gift to the tired mamas

If I met Emily in person, I’m convinced we’d be best friends. Because that’s how she makes you feel. This podcast is a breath of fresh air in the middle of a normal, hectic day. Listening is like a quick catch up with that friend whose relationship with you doesn’t require effort to be great.

Emily has a way to make you feel welcome and that you’re not alone. I’ve been following her for over 6 years and she has easily became one of my favorite people on the internet. I even met her at one of her book signings and she’s just as great in person. So excited for this podcast and for more Simplified advice💗
