Ep. 110: Knowing the News (1/3)

1/16/2018
More
We’re kicking off our new format with a deep-dive on a topic that affects most of us: How do we stay informed on what’s going on in the world without losing our minds or souls? No matter where we land on issues, this is a universal struggle because we all live in the modern world, and because we’re all humans. How do we strike that balance between knowing what’s going on, and keeping up without falling into despondency? Or compassion fatigue? Or anger? Or aloofness because it’s all just....

Kendra and Tsh chat about what to expect here on The Simple Show in 2018… In short, let’s change the definition of simple, shall we? Woot! We’ve been talking about “simple living” around here for ages. And that’s all good. But now, we’re ready to talk about other stuff. We’re gonna hold on to the tried-and-true definition of simple: easy to understand. We’re stoked for what’s in store! Links From This Episode The Simple Show on InstagramThe Lazy Genius...

Ep. 108: Goals That Actually Work

1/2/2018
More
To ring in the new year, we’re gonna talk about… goals. So original, I know, but don’t change the channel just yet. Erin and I talk about whether we’re even into goals—and if we are, how we think about them differently so that they’re useful and not ridiculous dogma we’re “supposed” to care about (especially this time of year). This was a fun conversation, and Erin had some good insight I hadn’t thought of before… Spoiler alert: we don’t know what we’ll care about in 12 months. (That...

Wrapping up our series on What's Saving Our Lives right now... In this episode, Stephanie and I chat fireplaces, yoga, smoothies, makeup, and more. She's sick, and she's in the midst of a snowstorm, so our connection wasn't 100%. But what's the holidays without a little flu-blizzard combo?

With the holidays in full swing and with only a few weeks left of the year, we thought we'd end 2017 with a fun, short series: What's Saving My Life! We'll share the things—big and small—that are making our lives better, happier, and well, more life-giving. First up is Tsh with Kendra, where they talk about deep, significant issues like skin, hair, sounds, smells, books, and bread.

Ep. 104: Holiday Prep!

11/27/2017
More
Well, it’s officially the holiday season—American Thanksgiving was last week, Advent starts a week from this Sunday, and Christmas comes along soon after. How to enjoy it all without spiraling into overwhelm? That’s the topic of this week’s episode. Stephanie and Tsh share how they do the holidays in their own homes—both do their best to keep things simple, but they do things pretty differently. They talk about gift-giving, card-sending (or not), easing into decor vs. doing it all at...

Ep. 103: Frugality

11/20/2017
More
In the spirit of the upcoming holidays, this week’s episode is on… not spending money. It’s perfectly fine to spend money when it’s good to do so—but how often do we ask whether it’s needed? Haley is big on something called “buy nothing” groups, Tsh is a fan of thrift stores, and they both have still other ideas in between. What does it mean to live frugally? When is it a healthy, common sense, for-the-common-good practice, and when does it become a burden and a dogma? In this chat, they...

Ep. 102 : Benefits of Quitting

11/13/2017
More
Maybe this is you… It’s hard for you to admit the natural shifts in life because it means needing to quit something—and quitting feels like failure. (Spoiler alert: It’s not.) Or maybe once you decide to end something so you can move on to something new, you just want it to happen already. Quitting the old and starting the new feels really good. “Why hasn’t it already happened?” Here, we’re talking about the why—why it’s okay to move on from things. Even good things. Tsh loves to quit...

Ep. 101: Money Management

11/6/2017
More
It’s not the sexiest of topics, but man if it doesn’t make or break you… Budgeting sounds as great as getting a root canal by a first grader, but really, it’s simply telling your money where to go. That’s it. In this episode, Erin and I chat the ins and outs of how we do it in our households. What does it look like to watch our pennies? How do we prioritize what to spend our money on? What method of saving and budgeting works for us? And ultimately, how does money affect our life?...

Ep. 100: Love Where You Live

10/30/2017
More
It's episode 100—woot! (Which is cool, but also a bit misleading, because this podcast has had several iterations since it began in 2011. It's probably more at episode 263, if we're being honest.) But it means one hundred consistent episodes of its current incarnation, and that's worth celebrating. And who doesn't want a good excuse to celebrate? In this Very Special Episode, Tsh is chatting with all four co-hosts. All five women have interesting reasons why they live where they live,...

Ep. 99: Holiday Family Roadtrips

Hard to believe, but the holidays are almost here—and with that, a roadtrip to see faraway family might be on your horizon. This gives Tsh and co-host Stephanie an excuse to talk about their favorite thing: family travel. In this episode, they share their best tips for roadtripping with kiddos: what to do beforehand, how to handle the adventure on the road, and ways to stay sane while you're visiting family in their home.

Ep. 98: Reading For Fun

10/16/2017
More
It’s all well and good to talk about why reading matters, what makes for great books, and how to increase our attention spans—but what about simply ways to make reading more enjoyable? That’s the topic of this week’s episode: how Tsh and co-host Haley—certified book nerds—make one of their favorite hobbies work for them. They're moms, wives, friends, and writers, and yet they make time to read books. If you love to read and wished you had more time for it, or if you want to love to read...

Ep. 97: Cleaning

10/9/2017
More
You'd think there wouldn't be much to talk about when it comes to cleaning—we all have to do it, end of story. But really, it's much more do-able, efficient, and maybe even enjoyable (? okay, not so much) when we do what works for us, not what we "should" do. Kendra and Tsh talk about cleaning: how they do it, how they don't do it, and things they've learned that work for them. Plus, Kendra talks about her genius idea for cleaning and decluttering a super-smart way: The Swap! Be...

Bonus: Anxious for Nothing

10/5/2017

A few weeks ago, Tsh talked to Max Lucado, the prolific author and long-time pastor. This was right after Hurricane Irma, and with both of them being in central Texas, Hurricane Harvey was heavy on their minds. Now, more events have happened - Hurricane Maria, the Las Vegas shootings, and more… And sad to say, who knows what else is around the corner. In this bonus episode, Tsh talks with Max about how to handle feeling anxious*, especially in troubling times like these. With pastoral...

Ep. 96: Exercise

10/2/2017
More
We all know we're supposed to do it, and we know there's a million ways to do it. But how to make it work when life feels full and you're less than enthusiastic about the prospect? For Tsh and co-host Erin, it's all about mindset—how to look at exercise in the first place. (In fact, Tsh doesn't even like calling it exercise.) Maybe it's a personality thing, but they're pretty chill when it comes to numbers, measurements, perfectionism, or competition. They just like moving their bodies...

Ep. 95: Extracurriculars

9/25/2017

There are so many great after-school activities for our kiddos, but we can't say yes to everything. How do we choose? And how do we balance tapping into the fantastic resources of sports, music, arts, and life skills while still having plenty of free time to just... be a kid? What if it's a great option for an individual child in our family, but it negatively affects the whole clan? When you have multiple schedules to wrangle, how do you handle the spinning plates of extracurriculars...

Ep. 94: Attention Spans

9/18/2017
More
We’ve all been there: you settle in with a big book or a longer article, and you just can’t seem to concentrate. Your brain flits from topic to topic, refusing to settle down and focus. The inability to consume longer-form content is becoming an actual problem in our modern era of smartphones, screens everywhere, and billions of quick soundbite-sized content thrown at us every second. Tsh and co-host Haley talk about keeping brains sharp, eyes focused in a world of memes, GIFs, and...
