Book Review: The Lazy Genius Way by Kendra Adachi

Book Review: The Lazy Genius Way by Kendra Adachi

"Self-care should be a regular practice of doing what makes you feel like yourself. It's a practical way of remembering who you are." 

___________________

Synopsis

In this debut book, Kendra Adachi offers practical tips to help us tackle life without running ourselves into the ground.  Kendra's motto, "Be a genius about the things that matter and lazy about the things that don't" is the book's framework and the first chapter breaks down what it means to be a lazy genius. The subsequent chapters are 13 lazy genius principles: Decide Once, Start Small, Ask the Magic Question, Live in the Season , Build the Right Routines, Set House Rules, Put Everything in its Place, Let People In, Batch It, Essentialize, Go in the Right Order, Schedule Rest, and Be Kind to Yourself. Each chapter follows a similar flow beginning with a definition and/or real life story about each principle and is followed by steps to apply the principle to your own life. There is also a really helpful recap and a small starting step at the end of each chapter. 

My Thoughts

Y'all. Kendra (aka The Lazy Genius) gets my brain. This book was such a breath of fresh air. It's not merely a book of practical principles, but it's also a book about discovering what matters to you and how to tackle those important-to-you tasks. The chapter about seasons made me cry (in a good way) and the chapter about scheduling rest is one of the most helpful things I've EVER READ about self-care. Whether you are a natural when it comes to organization and life-hacks or you need a little extra help, Kendra offers the perfect balance for us all. 

Pre-order the book here (it comes out August 11th) or listen to the first chapter of the audiobook here.

Transitioning Your Skincare for Fall/Winter
Transitioning Your Skincare for Fall/Winter

August 24, 2021

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter ...
