Episode 63: Living Life When Things Get Hard

Living Life When Hard Things Happen >> Guinea Pigging Green

Hello friends,

Today on the show we’re talking about how to live life while you’re experiencing something difficult. You can listen to the episode using the player below or by subscribing to us on iTunes.

In the episode, Laura shares how her family has been going through a hard time during the last few weeks. Our conversation is about ideas and perspectives that we have found helpful in our lives whenever we are experiencing something tough.

Some helpful resources we mention in the show:

This is a personal episode, and we both realized that hard things are hard to talk about. But we also think it’s so important to get things out into the open and talk about the issues that don’t get discussed as much as they should. We appreciate you listening very, very much.



Episode 62: Time Tracking


What have you been doing for the last 15 minutes?


This week on the podcast, we discuss our latest experiment; Steph and I committed to tracking an entire week in 15 minute increments (inspired – as we often are – by a book. In this case, Laura Vanderkam’s 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think). Some of the results were quite surprising!
