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.
When I turned 30 and reflected upon the past decade, I realized that my daily actions were more of a physical Twitch than intentional actions. It turned out, this Twitch wasn’t just limited to one thing. It applied to impulsive smartphone usage, social media, online purchases 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, 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 in these three areas, you will experience greater clarity and more meaningful progress on the things most important to you. I hope to help each one of you do more of what matters through sharing my thoughts on minimalism, habits and creativity.
