Seasons and Cycles with Jenny Fenig

Seasons and Cycles with Jenny Fenig
“Since I as far back as I can recall, I have been in love with the calendar. I can look at a month or a quarter and drop things into it and know it’s up to me then to breathe life into that.” - Jenny Fenig

On this episode of the Plan Simple Meals Podcast, I’m super excited to talk with Jenny Fenig, a coach, author, and spiritual brand strategist with three kids. And she talks about a lot of things that I’m super passionate about right now.

One of the things we talk about is different seasons of our lives—and the actual seasons of the year. Jenny talks about embracing the energy of the different seasons, which I think is so important for ourselves and our families.

And we talk about choosing things we can get excited by. We don’t have time to waste, so what we choose to do needs to matter to us. It’s so easy to put up with things, but there is another way. We dig into that.

We talk about:

  • how things change in parenting and the need to adapt to the changes
  • strategic planning and tasking out big projects (and using Asana as a tool)
  • getting fired up and having a mission
  • having support in your family and from outside
  • finding quiet and communicating your needs
  • getting a lot done even if you don’t have a lot of time

    Doable Changes

    START THE DAY WITH LEMON WATER. Try starting your day with warm lemon water. Just heat water and pour over a quarter lemon in a glass. This is a great way to start the day in summer or winter.

    MOVE YOUR BODY. There are a lot of ways to move your body and finding one (or several) that works for you is important. Don’t think you have to have an hour free to go to the gym. Try taking a walk with your kids just to get moving. It’s good for you and for them too!

    FIND QUIET TIME. Quiet time is really important, but it can be hard to get with kids. Try going for a walk or taking a shower. And ask for it. Ask your partner to take the kids on errands or stay home with them so you can get in a quiet walk.
