Habits with Desirae Endres

This is episode 44 and today I’m here with Desirae Endres talking about habits.

Desirae is a mom, wife, host of the minimal-ish podcast, and a former classroom teacher turned work at home mom. Her goal is to give women the tools they need to dive into the version of realistic minimalism that fits their family best and to live more intentionally, focused on what matters to them. 

Adventure of the Week

This week I share our adventure riding bikes along the waterfront. 


Struggles: We walk through some struggles that an intentional routine can support.

Intentions: We go over some intentions or goals that our routines are helping us to live in alignment with or achieve.

Unbusy: We share some things we were doing, that once we got conscious with our routine, we were able to let go of.

Language: We discuss some things that we used to say “I can’t” about, that we now realize we absolutely can.

Start: We give recommendations for how people can get started if they want to build some quality new habits into their routine.

Success: We share a time when we lowered the bar for success.

Environment: We talk about what things we have set up in our environment to support our routine.

Reflections: We speak to some reflections between our morning and evening routine.

Direction: We discuss how hard it feels when we don’t move in one direction.

Q & A

We answer the question “What advice do you have for people struggling to find the balance between the needs of individual family members?”
