Yep, it’s a double feature—we get Emily twice this week! In this podcast episode, my friend Emily Freeman and I chat about the release of her latest book, Simply Tuesday: Small-Moment Living in a Fast-Moving World. And as you might guess, this book is totally. up. my. alley.
In this episode, we talk about feeling held hostage by hustle, why making soup is so important, and why small really is the new free. This is my favorite book of hers yet because it speaks a message I so readily applaud: that it’s in the small moments where we truly live, and that when we embrace where we are in the here and now, letting go of the obsession to make ourselves bigger, better, faster, and more productive, we’ll find true life.
Plus? She’s just fun to chat with. One of my favorite people.
