60 Mindful Minutes

Apr 26, 2022

If you are struggling to stay on top of your life—your to-do list, home, hygiene, meals, etc.—consider that it’s not because you’re lazy, even if this is what you’ve been told. Author KC Davis wants you to know this: messiness is not a moral failing. In her new book, How to Keep House While Drowning: A Gentle Approach to Cleaning and Organizing, KC takes on our ‘push harder, be better’ culture and all the shame that goes along with seemingly not being able to measure up. Instead, she invites us to take a kinder, more compassionate approach to ourselves during those moments when life overwhelms us.
