Minimalist Mom Spotlight: Nikita Seal

A series focused on 'real' minimalist moms: It’s odd to refer to this series that way but I wanted to encourage the everyday mom that you don’t have to go to extremes (or have a giant platform) to influence minimalism to those around you. Today I bring you my conversation with Nikita Seal. Nikita is mom to five year old boy/girl twins. She is host of the podcast Anxiety is a Mutha! where she and her co-host discuss anxiety and depression and how prevalent it is in the black community but is hardly ever addressed. She refers to herself as a corporate hippie (as she's a free spirit who feels trapped in the redundant corporate life.) A minimalist at heart, she has recently begun making major strides in clearing the mental clutter.

EP129: Simplifying Together [Dividing Tasks & Playing to Strengths in Marriage] with Jessie Ereddia

Today I bring you my conversation with fellow podcaster, Jessie Ereddia. Jessie is a mother of two [almost three] girls, the host of the Mom Empowered Podcast, and an Empowerment Coach. She empowers moms to gain the emotional wellness they need to confidently create the life they've always wanted. This discussion covers the importance of "regrouping" with your spouse regularly to assess how the division of household/child-related tasks are working (or NOT working) in your home and Jessie will give practical advice of how to play on each other's strengths when you are delegating and divvying up who does what!

Minimalist Mom Spotlight: Dakota Curfman

She is a mom of four littles and works from home pursuing her passion to help other moms simplify their motherhood, while also chasing creative passions.

EP128: Navigating Screen-Time Overload [+ My Go-To Ways to Avoid Screens] with Autumn McKay

Quick note: I recorded this episode back in February 2020. I have a noticeable cold that I remark on in the beginning of my conversation. A lot of my episodes are recorded months before they drop so I apologize for any confusion or mentions of it being winter at the release date (July 2020.) ---- This week, I bring you my conversation with author, Autumn McKay. In 2016, Autumn created her blog, Best Mom Ideas where she began to share tips and tricks she learned throughout her own motherhood journey. The creation of this blog turned into the creation of her books, The Ultimate Toddler Activity Guide and The Ultimate Kindergarten Prep Guide. Today we’ll discuss the benefits of screen-free activities, ways to encourage independent play and how to minimize screen time in the day-to-day. I've also included ten of my go-to ways to avoid screens! It can be tough in extreme temperatures to know how to balance screen time with playtime so my hope is to give you a couple of suggestions you h...

I bring you some personal thoughts on this subject, as well as dive into a discussion with Marie Kondo consultant, Sarit Sela. I wanted to give you the opportunity to make the decision for yourself after listening to two sides of the method! Show Notes for EP127: Spark Joy: Is It Really the Best Approach to Decluttering?

EP126: Adventuring Together: How to Create Spontaneity with Kids with Greta Eskridge

Today I bring you my conversation with author, Greta Eskridge. Greta Eskridge is a second-generation homeschooling mom of four. Her message of deeply connected and intentional parenting began as a blog in her early days of mothering, but quickly blossomed into a writing and speaking career. Now, Greta helps parents and kids create connection in a disconnected world on her website, at the popular Wild and Free homeschool conferences, and at speaking engagements around the country. Today we'll be discussing the subject of her new book, adventuring with kids. In recent years, children are growing up in a world that looks little like the one their parents experienced during childhood. The Internet at their fingertips, cameras on phones that fit in their pockets, schedules jam-packed with extracurriculars. Parents find themselves competing for their children’s attention, at a loss for meaningful ways to cut through the noise and connect. Greta will answer questions such as: how do I get...
