Podcast #75: Finding Joy in Simplicity (How to Stop Wanting More)

Welcome back to Adultescence! This episode kicks off with a reminder to leave a review for your chance to win a $50 Starbucks gift card! Our giveaway ends on December 15th.

Next, Jess and Laura talk about traveling, recap Jess’s recent trip to Mexico, and Laura solicits vacation ideas from the audience. The topic of the episode is how to simplify your life in a culture that feels very “more is more” (especially around the holidays). Jess and Laura consider how to embrace the simple pleasures in life, and discuss why the desire to over-complicate life is so insidious.

The pair give examples of how they’re manifesting this philosophy in their own lives, and why they recommend it for adultescents everywhere.

Embracing Simplicity

Finally, the episode wraps up with bookish adulting moments: a shout out to audio books and a plug for Book of the Month.
