130 // Make Minimalism Your Own with Desirae Endres from Minimal-ish
The term “minimalism” can be a turnoff to those who think that it’s legalistic, restrictive, or requires that you only own a certain amount of stuff. But minimalism has many facets, and it’s a tool that can help you live a more intentional, peaceful life. In this episode I’m joined again by Desirae Endres from the popular podcast Minimal-ish. We chat about how to make minimalism your own, and what she sees are the four pillars of minimalism. Desirae is a wife, mom to two girls, and the host of the Minimal-ish podcast where she talks about all things realistic minimalism, motherhood, and intentional living. In 2018, Desirae and her husband set out to live with less clutter in their home. Soon she found that the journey to less was about so much more than a clutter-free home. Desirae believes that a less cluttered life is where the idea of minimalism really makes a difference- a life focused on more of what matters, and less of what doesn‘t. She is passionate about sharing her journey and walking alongside podcast listeners towards a less cluttered, more intentional life.   Resources Mentioned:   Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things   Simple Morning Lists   Your Minimal-ish Holidays   Connect with Desirae on her podcast, her website, Instagram, or check out her free resource Making Room Related Episodes:   Episode 29: Embracing Kids’ Messes (Without Going Crazy) with Desirae Endres from Minimal-ish   Episode 54: How to Simplify, Minimize, and Thrive - Even with a Chronic Illness - with Ali Cornish from Everthrive   Episode 122: How Minimalism and Mindfulness Support Emotional Regulation and Mitigate PMDD Symptoms - with Diane deJesus   *** I help moms declutter their homes, heads, and hearts.

128 // How a Personal Inventory Can Help You Calm the Chaos and Live More Intentionally - with Kari Davis from The Well - Health and Wholeness Podcast
Do you feel like you're constantly in survival mode?  Do you wish you could calm the chaos and finally live more intentionally? Taking a personal inventory may be the key to taking stock of where you're at right now, understanding your needs, and then moving forward on a path of sustainable self-care.  Today's guest is Kari Davis from The Well - Health and Wholeness Podcast. She is founder of thewellteam.com and a certified Holistic Life Coach and an essential oils educator. Kari is passionate about empowering women with the tools they need to reclaim their life through self care, health and finding their identity while embracing the idea of a natural and non-toxic lifestyle in their products and mindset.  Kari and her husband, Bobby, live in Naples, Florida with their combined five children. Kari and I talk about how her life "derailed" after the unexpected death of her husband TJ in 2015 and the steps she took to take inventory of her life and proactively redefine self-care so she could move forwards.  Resources Mentioned: Connect with Kari on The Well - Health and Wholeness Podcast, her website, and Instagram.

126 // Drowning in Toys? Embrace a “Borrow, Don’t Buy” Mentality by Using Toy Libraries - with Lisa Bourven from The Toy Nest
Did you know that the average American child receives over $6500 worth of toys before they reach their teens (source) but 8 of 10 kids play with 20 toys or fewer (source)? If your home is filled to the brim with toys - most of which your kids never touch - then a toy library may be a solution for you! Lisa Bourven is mom of two and was a stay-at-home-mom for almost nine years after leaving her career in corporate-level retail operations and analytics. She is married to a Frenchman and earned a graduate business degree in France, where she experienced the joy of living in a small space with less. After seeing the need for a “stay and play” solution that would alleviate many problems in her family’s life (boredom, toy clutter, waste, budget, and tiny play space), The Toy Nest was born. On today’s episode, Lisa and I speak about why she started The Toy Nest, the benefits of borrowing toys and enjoying the community that a toy library offers, and alternative options to borrow toys if you don’t live close to a toy library. Do you live in Northern Virginia? Here’s a special offer when you visit the Toy Nest and mention the Moms Overcoming Overwhelm podcast - you’ll get one month of Flock membership for the price of Fledgling membership!

124 // The Rise of ADHD in Women and How to Be More Productive When Focus is a Challenge - with Alicia Cohen
Many of the mamas in the Moms Overcoming Overwhelm Facebook community have shared that they struggle with ADHD, and many have been recently diagnosed. In fact, Epic Research recently reported that the percentage of adult women who were newly diagnosed nearly doubled in the U.S. between 2020 and 2022. ADHD impacts attention, focus, and impulsive behavior, and can make activities like decluttering (that require sustained focus and attention) difficult. On today’s episode, productivity expert Alicia Cohen dives into ADHD - what it is, what it isn’t, and the productivity tips that will benefit anyone who struggles with sustained focus and attention - even if you don’t have ADHD. Alicia Cohen specializes in prioritization and time management. She built her business, Alicia Cohen Designs, based on her own journey of overcoming her overwhelmed and frazzled life -- what she calls the "hamster wheel marathon" -- and now teaches others the methods that she discovered and uses personally. With Alicia’s support, busy people learn intentional planning, effective productivity, and high-impact mindset shifts that enable them to transform from constantly feeling behind to designing lives that work and feel good. Alicia is based in the U.S. where she lives with her husband and children. She finds great joy in homeschooling her children and marvels at how blessed she is.   Resources Mentioned: Definition of ADHD that Alicia references from the National Institute of Mental Health Connect with Alicia on her website, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram Snag Alicia’s freebie and learn her Top 3 To-Do List Hacks to Get Immediate Results   Related Episodes: Episode 21: Is Your To-Do List Out of Control?
