Episode 9: Ideal Self

More thoughts on living with less and doing, or not doing things, because of the "ideal self."



This is where I record the eleventy billionth knitting podcast.

Questions I have for you:
Are you finding ways to move and take care of your body that are compatible with the "simple life?"
How important is it to you to get outdoors regularly?
