How a Bowl Can Change Your Life — The Lazy Genius Collective

I own a bowl that has changed my life. When you're home with little ones as I am, lunch is often a throwaway. By the time you clean up the food you just made them , they're hungry again, and you're already tired from a morning of refereeing and make-believe. It's too much effort to make s

In therapy, “Yes, and” has served a different purpose for me. As a person with anxiety, I struggle with the unknown and being out of control. I was eager to identify the singular source of my panic in order to stop it, to regain power over myself. But thanks to my therapist’s gentle pushback to my dichotomous assumptions, I now understand that there isn’t always one reason for my emotional response, but many; sometimes there aren’t any reasons at all.

My Therapist Says ‘Yes, And’

In early 2017, I experienced my first panic attack. I was in a work meeting with my manager when I began to feel hot and claustrophobic, sure I was going to throw up. I kept looking to the door…

The "Two Minute Rule" Can Change Your Life — The Lazy Genius Collective

I hate a lot of things. Laundry, dirty toilets, cleaning dirty toilets, sweat, Anne Hathaway... the list is exhaustive. My typical Lazy Genius response to household things I hate is to ignore them. Why spend energy on stuff that doesn't matter? But if I ignore the laundry for too long, my kids wil

The Target Girl That Blew My Mind — The Lazy Genius Collective
