#69: The Lazy Genius Summer Detox

August feels crazy because it is crazy. We're one step into summer, one step into fall, and feel like we're going to fall over. Plus, our kids have been with us for 578 years and we need a break. In this episode, let's reset our minds and change our posture a little. It's okay for motherhood to be hard, but it doesn't have to paint the entire picture. If you're home with kids, this episode is especially for you.

#68: The Lazy Genius Tries New Things

In this last episode of the summer, I share the gift of trying new things. We're often afraid of failing, but if we fail to build up our Try New Things muscle, those new things we so desperately long for will be harder to find. 

Hear what I'm working on this summer, what new things have entered my life, and why this summer break is part of that. I hope you try some new things, too!

#62: The Lazy Genius Summer Strategy: Mindset

Even now in May, summer already feels overwhelming. We want to get a lot done, rest, have time alone and away from our kids, and figure out the perfect balance between structure and freedom. While that balance might not actually exist, a new mindset can certainly help you try. 

In this, the first episode in a four-part series, we're going to develop a strategy for the summer, and as always around here, we begin with a little reframing. Listen in.

Stuff Mentioned In This Episode:

#61: The Lazy Genius Exercise Routine

We need some reframing when it comes to exercise. If you love working out, you might not find this topic necessary. If you think working out is the worst, you're probably girding your loins against the incoming guilt. 

In The Lazy Genius Exercise Routine, you'll get zero guilt. In fact, I think you'll feel free to approach exercise in a way that makes sense without feeling like you have to look like an Olympian.

  • JCrew - many of you swear by their shorts and t-shirt dresses
  • Madewell - responsibly sourced and just trendy enough
  • Lularoe - a lot of you sing the praises of their leggings and casual dresses

  • Boden - beautiful, classy investment pieces
  • the most intriguing suggestion - raw silk tees that cost a fortune but look UHMAZING and last forever
  • Lou & Grey - with the tagline "Clothing for a Comfortably Confident Life" and reasonable prices, this brand could be a new favorite
  • a vocal minority were all in for Title Nine shorts
  • Garnet Hill - pricey but some great natural fiber pieces, especially if you can grab them on sale
  • A.N.A. from JCPenney - I've actually gotten a few pieces from this brand, and it's a great one... although I recommend trying stuff on in the store or getting in-store returns since they tend to look differently on your own human body than in the photos.

It's finally here! Welcome to season one of The Lazy Genius podcast! 

Listen to a sneak peek of what's coming over the next ten episodes, and while you wait for them, go ahead and hop on iTunes or your favorite podcast app and subscribe to this podcast! And once you have a listen and like what you hear, do me a kindness and leave a review. The more stars and words and downloads the show gets, the more people will find it. And don't we want more people to be Lazy Geniuses? Of course we do. 

I'm so glad you're here! Enjoy listening!
