My guest today is Jules Acree. Jules is a wellness writer, entrepreneur, and video content creator behind Om & The City. It’s her daily mission to bring wellness down-to-earth and to help others simplify life to find more joy. She is also the founder of The Homebodies, an online shop for low-waste, intentional living. On this episode, we discuss:

  • What financial minimalism is, and how Jules implements it in her life
  • The one thing people get wrong when they embark on a sustainable lifestyle
  • Jules’ personal mental health journey, including how she’s overcome struggling with depression and anxiety
  • Her go-to mental health tools for feeling good, energized, and productive every day
  • Her morning routine
  • Her experience in couples therapy
  • Amazing relationship advice FROM her couples therapist
  • And so much more!
