Remember back in episode 200 where we did the Lazy Genius starter pack and listed 20 of the best episodes that will impact your life right away? This is that but for going back to school. If you don’t have kids or aren’t in education, you might not be super into this episode, but there might be a few helpful things in the realm of seasonal transitions so there you go.

The summer-to-fall transition can feel murky, especially if you have kids or work in education. There’s not a clean mark between the end of this and the start of that. Which means it feels like we’re neither beginning nor ending anything. We are not crossing finish lines or hearing starting guns. We’re just running around like headless chickens. Let’s talk about how to finish summer in this super short little summer episode.Helpful Companion LinksEmily P.

I haven’t talked about opening and closing ceremonies (or what I now have shortened and broadened to seasonal ceremonies) in a while. Even though a lot of you are familiar with them, we haven’t done a full-on episode about them before if you can believe it!

Let’s do a quick little midsummer pep talk for the year of 2022 that just keeps outdoing its big brothers, 2020 and 2021. There are so many things that can impact our day, and right now, it feels like the intensity of the sensory input is extra sharp and edgy.

My goal is that you listen to these next twenty minutes or so and you leave with the following pieces of information: what matters most to you about your reading over the next two or three months, an idea of how to find things to read that make sense for you, and a simple - I mean, ridiculously simple - summer reading rhythm. This is not me telling you what I do, expecting you to take the same approach.

First, there’s a different strategy when you’re visiting the pool once or twice versus going to the pool again and again. If you’re going as a guest, you pack your bag with towels and snacks and whatever you or your kids need for the day, you go, you have fun, and you come home. One-off experiences are generally a little more forgiving. It’s the repeated ones that can be a bit frustrating.This episode is going to be focused on spending multiple days a week or basically spending the summer at the pool. There will be some great tips for people who only go once or twice or maybe go to the beach or just summer outings in general, but the focus here is going to the pool again and again.Helpful Companion LinksEpisode 209: How to Keep Your Surfaces ClearEpisode 210: How to Lazy Genius Kids’ Screen TimeEpisode 211: How to Plan a Summer DayEpisode 212: A Guide to Summer House RulesEpisode 213: Create a Summer Reading ClubMy pool bagOur pool towelsThe Summer DocketDownload a transcript of this episode.

The Magic Question is what can I do now to make something easier later? The smaller the something, the easier the solution. When you ask the magic question, you usually get a pretty quick win.

 In my book that released last week, The Lazy Genius Kitchen, I shared something kind of revolutionary. A cooking formula that could change how you approach recipes forever. It’s called The Liquid Index, and it is your recipe decoder. It’s kind of a big deal, big enough that I want to spend an entire episode on it today.

New listener, 6 years late! At 14:58, you said Nick Flora was the first person you’re interviewing for the podcast - I’m just curious if this was recorded before the first episode that you had your best friend on? Or is it a matter of format, or that she was a close friend and Nick isn’t? (I can’t help noticing the discrepancy.)

I've had a similar experience picking up a car internationally, so my genius husband bought me a charging block that I always travel with to prevent not being able to charge my phone, so calamity averted. also when traveling internationally you need to know how to change the settings on the car's GPS (if you are fortunate to get) so you can understand the language. lastly, for international travel, Google translate is your best friend! love your ideas and tips! BTW my daughter lives in Winston-Salem as well.

once a year I take out all of the clothes that are to the left of a yellow neon hanger. I move the hanger then to the right of all of my clothes that are still in my closet As I wash and wear things throughout the year they end up on the right side of the hanger. I know at the end of that year I have gone through holidays celebrations seasons and everything and if I have not worn something in a year it gets donated to a friend. if something is worn but not dirty enough to put in the laundry basket I hang it on a hanger and then put the hanger in my closet backwards so I know the next time I take it out that it needs to go in the laundry.

first of all, I love you! Your book is "saving my life right now". I just need to tell you that Thai food does not in fact involve peanuts. Americanized Thai food does, but not authentic Thai food. My husband is 1/2 Thai and this is how I know. 😁
