Break the Twitch is all about minimizing distractions and doing more of what matters.
I’m Anthony Ongaro, the guy behind Break the Twitch. I live in The North—Minneapolis, specifically—with my lovely wife, Amy. We started exploring intentional living, learned about minimalism shortly after, and have been designing our ideal lives together ever since. We enjoy traveling to new places, making videos, listening to music, and hanging out with our dog Rocky.
After years of impulse spending on Amazon and elsewhere, I realized that my one-click purchase habits were more of a physical Twitch than an intentional action. It turned out, this Twitch wasn’t just limited to online spending. It applied to social media, impulsive smartphone usage, and more.
What’s The Twitch?
Check out my 4-minute TEDx talk for a brief explanation of what this is and why it matters:
So what can we do about it?
Through my own exploration of intentional living, I’ve embraced a philosophy that can help break the twitch while continually moving us towards a lifestyle that aligns with our values.
The heart of the philosophy is doing more of what matters through minimalism, habits and creativity.
With small daily actions within each of these pillars, you’ll experience greater clarity and make more meaningful progress on the things most important to you. That’s what I hope to help each one of you do through sharing my thoughts on minimalism, habits and creativity with the world.
