Rank #2: Episode 22: Questioning The KonMari Decluttering Method

Podcast cover
Read more
Marie Kondo’s “Japanese decluttering book” has taken the world by storm. The book details the author’s philosophy about organizing and decluttering, and gives step-by-step instructions for decluttering one’s home. She calls her specific steps the “KonMari Method,” and promises that it will change the lives of those who follow it. Thousands of people say it has, but plenty have voiced skepticism. In Episode 22 of Edit Your Life, Christine and Asha touch on different aspects of Marie Kondo’s approach, and share their reactions -- both positive and negative -- to the KonMari Method.

Podcast cover

The word happiness gets thrown around a lot, especially when it comes to family life. But what does “being a happy parent” mean? Does it mean we’re having fun? We’re on top of things? We’re sure of ourselves? None of us feels those things all the time, but most of us would like to feel those things more. In Episode 131 of the Edit Your Life podcast, Asha interviews KJ Dell’Antonia, author of the new book "How To Be A Happier Parent: Raising a Family, Having a Life, and Loving (Almost) Every Minute." Asha and KJ talk about analysis paralysis and its impact on happiness, kids’ “independence continuum,” handling sibling dynamics, and making decisions about screen time. Through it all, KJ shares real-world stories about how we can all be more happy, however that looks for us.

Podcast cover

Before you can improve yourself, you must know and accept yourself. But how? According to Gretchen Rubin (author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before, and co-host of the podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin) the key lies in knowing your tendency, or how you respond to inner and outer expectations. Once you do, keeping your New Year’s resolutions, sticking to an exercise routine, and even communicating with your partner or kids gets a whole lot easier.

In Episode 98 of Edit Your Life, Asha and Gretchen talk about her new book, The Four Tendencies, in which she lays out a simple framework for understanding our internal motivations (Obligers, Upholders, Questioners, or Rebels). They share the quirks and challenges of their own tendencies, discuss the inherent tension between improving and accepting ourselves, and talk about how the Four Tendencies play out in relationships.

Episode 199: Embracing Everyday Moments

Podcast cover
Read more
Even when—perhaps especially when—we’re suffering through a global pandemic, the small positive everyday moments are crucial to keeping us going. In Episode 199, Christine talks to LaShawn Wiltz about embracing and capturing everyday moments. They talk about letting go of aspirational social media FOMO, tuning in to the beauty of capturing everyday moments, simple tactics to level up your photography, and sources of inspiration. *Note that this episode was recorded right before COVID-19 shut everything down, so the pandemic does not factor into the conversation but the topic is relevant for right now as everyday moments are what we have to lean into in abundance.

Episode 197: Finding Middle Ground in Parenting

Podcast cover
Read more
Raising humans involves countless decisions and details, and the decision making can be colored by many things—personality, anxiety, personal baggage, and more. In Episode 197, Christine welcomes back psychotherapist Jonathan Baxter for a conversation about finding middle ground in parenting. This episode was inspired by Christine and Jon’s speaking engagement at Dad 2.0 Summit in late February and recorded right before COVID-19 shut everything down, so the pandemic does not factor into the conversation but the issues—origins of parental pressure, expectations and baggage, emotional tolerance, striking a balance between what you need and what you can let go, and coping with the changing stressors—will ring true now and beyond.
