Simply Joyful Podcast — Emily Ley: Amazing Tips to Help You Simplify Your Life

I love meeting moms who get it. As a mom of three young children and a thriving entrepreneur, Emily fully understands what overwhelmed can feel like. I had such a great time talking with Emily about her new book, Simplified Life. She highlights how she was able to “simplify” ten key areas of her life in order to increase her available time with her family — her first priority.

I really felt a kindred connection with Emily as we spoke. Just like Emily I’ve had those moments of feeling like I suddenly have way too much on my plate and feel suffocated by it all. Over the years, I’ve learned to take these feelings as signals to take a hard look at what I’ve allowed into our schedule.

Unburying yourself from the hustle and bustle of the mundane that can take over our days doesn’t have to be as hard as we make it. Emily’s book does such a beautiful job of helping families to “make the most” of their days with her tips.

I can’t wait for you to hear my fun conversation with Emily. Get ready to be encouraged!

Listen Here: 

Highlights from the Show:

  • Emily shares a little bit about her crazy life (she has a set of twin toddlers!), and why she is so passionate about the topic of simplifying.
  • I was so curious to find out how Emily got her start! She’s been featured in Forbes, Better Homes and Garden, and HGTV — Wow! Would you believe it all started in her guest bedroom printing Stationary and listing it on Etsy?!
  • Emily wrote her new book, Simplified Life, in (are you ready for this?) four days (FOUR!!) This book is so gorgeous. Emily shares how in the world she was about to write so fast.
  • One thing that Emily is known for is simplifying. Emily shares some tips on creating margin in your life.
  • Emily’s book breaks down ten key areas to simplify and one of the things was her calendar and scheduled. We are so overcommitted — Emily shares a couple of tips on how you don’t get to that point that you are overwhelmed and saying “no” to more things. Love her tip on how she gets out of her head and gets stuff done!
  • Does anyone else have an overabundance digital photo/video storage problem? I have over 75,000 photos stored (I know, I know) I asked Emily her advice on organizing all these photos!


  • I referred back to my podcast episode from last week where I shared a ton of productivity hacks!
