    What’s “Enough” at the Holidays?

    What’s “Enough” at the Holidays?

    Instead enjoying the peace of this special time of year,  it often feels like we’re pushed and pulled to do more, more, more. Or, if we’re experiencing hard things, it seems like holiday happiness is mandatory and there’s no room for our grief. So what’s really “enough” at the holidays? Emily shares a few ways to find “enough” and sit in the warm glow of hope, even when we’re struggling.

    Simplify Your Holiday Travel

    Simplify Your Holiday Travel

    Want to opt out of holiday travel stress? Us too. When it comes to having a smoother holiday travel experience, two things will help you out: a little planning and a lot of Starbucks. This week, Liz helps us think about those pesky details we often overlook whether we’re planning to hop in the car or on a plane for the holidays so we can say “bye!” to stress and “hello!” to holiday joy a bit sooner.

    Coping with Holiday Stress: Quick Tips for Emotional Wellness

    Coping with Holiday Stress: Quick Tips for Emotional Wellness

    During the holidays, taking care of ourselves often gets put on the back burner so we can take care of all the magic. But as Liz reminds us, there are small ways we can care for ourselves and our emotional wellness that don’t take up too much time or energy. And it’s only when we care for ourselves that we have the capacity to experience the joy and abundance of the season.

What is going on?

I used to love the original podcast. I looked forward to my Thursday commute every week because this meant a new podcast with Emily. Now I have to pay to read something every week? I listen to podcasts because it *simplifies* my life… I can do this while driving, doing dishes, laundry, etc… I will most likely not be subscribing to substack. Please bring back the OG podcast!

Love Simplified

I really enjoy listening to Emily Ley’s Simplified podcast. I find it engaging and helpful in all topics they discuss. Thank you for being real with us and talking about real topics!

Used to love

I used to love this podcast and look forward to it every week, but it’s not the same. I miss Emily. The episodes are also so short, 15 minutes and filled with adds. Only one episode a week is sad. And most episodes still feel like they are reading from a script. I hope 2024 is better. I love Emily and this company, but I’m confused by the direction they are going.
