This is episode 14 and today I’m here with Denaye Barahona Ph.D. talking about minimalism.
Denaye is the voice behind Simple Families–a blog, podcast, and community that helps mothers thrive through simple living. She lives in New York with her husband and two children.
Adventure of the Week
I share the magical forest theater where we hiked and saw Peter Pan with our friends.
Minimalism: We share what minimalism really is and what it looks like for us.
Parenting: I talk about how minimalism is a strong strand that is woven throughout natural parenting.
Time: We share how we embrace unbusy.
Playscape: We go over how we take a minimalist approach to playscape design.
Ownership: We cover how we navigate ownership in our family culture.
Role Modeling: You know we’re tackling how powerful role modeling is in shifting your family toward minimalism.
Boundaries: We share how having some physical boundaries helps to limit and contain clutter.
Extended Family: We offer some advice for navigating relationships with extended family or friends who don’t get minimalism.
We tackle this question from Noelle: “I find navigating minimalism joyful and freeing for myself. I find living with a non-minimalist husband and children less joyful. The living with them part is wonderful. Their stuff is harder on me! I would love to learn how to enjoy a minimalist home in a “blended” family.”
