Weekend wisdom: When you are gentle with your yourself, your nervous system can better tolerate what’s going on out there.
One of the questions I get asked the most about minimalist fashion challenge Project 333 is … “What about laundry?” In this week’s episode of the Soul & Wit Podcast, I answer that question. Plus, Bailey and I dispel laundry myths and share our laundry routines. I never thought I’d talk this much about something I care so little about but it’s something that gets our attention on a regular basis so we may as well make it fun. If there are other ordinary things you want us to explore on the pod, let me know!
Ok … onto the favorites.

P.S. Please tell me about your favorite, new (ish) simplicity writers, bloggers, podcasters (even if it’s YOU) … anyone publishing publicly who inspires simplicity in your life. I’d especially love to hear about women, BIPOC or anyone in the queer, disability and/or neurodivergent communities who are in this space.
