In this episode, I explore the definition of intentional living, my minimalism journey, and what Break the Twitch is all about.
When we moved in together three years ago, Amy and I decided not to get cable TV. We have certainly seen the benefits many times over and haven’t regretted the decision for one second. Check out these reasons why I think you should do the same.
Ready for some inspiration? In this short video, I discuss three benefits that you can expect from decluttering your home. Have a great week everyone!
In this vlog, I speak with Joshua Becker of becoming minimalist about his event-opening talk at SimpleREV 2015, the benefits of minimalism, and how we can find the quickest path to happiness by helping others.
Super grateful for the opportunity to sit down and chat with this guy, for all the inspiration he provides to this community, and his willingness to hang out on the vlog. Enjoy the video.
In the video we mention:
- The Hope Effect (A new nonprofit)
- Becoming Minimalist (Joshua’s blog that likely needs no introduction)
- SimpleREV (The simple living event that we talk about, happened this last weekend in Minneapolis)
- Joel Zaslofsky (The main brain behind SimpleREV, and my 2015 event co-host)
Have a great week everyone!
This week I’m heading to a bike sharing conference in Chicago and thought it would be fun to show how I pack my bag. Whenever possible, I pack using only a backpack and carry-on everything with me. I’ve found it makes my life significantly easier when flying as there is almost no risk of losing luggage this way. In this video I show what I pack for a three day (business) trip and give a quick review of my Tortuga Air backpack.
As a note, I was not compensated by Tortuga Backpacks for this. Don’t buy it unless you truly don’t have any other reasonable solution. If you have to buy something, this bag is pretty good and cheaper than many other comparable bags.
In the video I mention:
So what do you think? What might you bring that I didn’t, or vise versa?
You don’t have to force yourself into a box to see the benefits of a minimalist lifestyle. Here are my thoughts about rational minimalism, what it means to me, and how Amy and I have designed our lifestyles to reflect our ideal goals.
In the video I mention:
- Joshua Becker of Becoming Minimalist
- The Hope Effect, a nonprofit organization that’s going to change the world.
Do you have a particular brand of minimalism? What philosophy best reflects your ideals and lifestyle goals?
