Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle shares his thoughts on intentional spending. Episode 1631: Appropriation by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on Intentional Spending & Conscious Consumer Spending Colin Wright is a professional author and international speaker who co-founded a publishing company and travels full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so--that country determined by the votes of his readers! He also blogs. Colin's a minimalist in that he owns very few things and is careful in how he consumes. He tends to buy less, but invest in quality when he does, and trends toward the same in relationships, business endeavors, and just about everything else. He's left-handed, blue-eyed, scary good at Tetris, and can’t cook. The original post is located here: https://exilelifestyle.com/appropriation/ Please Rate & Review the Show!

Episode 1621: Maybe Variety isn't the Spice of Life by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Productivity Hacks Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

1606: The Bag Lady by Chris Lovett of Minimalings on Minimalism & How To Re-examine Your Life

Chris Lovett of Minimalings shares his thoughts on the bag lady. Episode 1606: The Bag Lady by Chris Lovett of Minimalings on Minimalism & How To Re-examine Your Life Chris Lovett is a minimalist, life coach, speaker and career mentor but it didn't used to be that way. Quite content drifting through life in the comfort zone, he was collecting stuff, not exactly the stuff he wanted to collect but stuff none the less. Chris had a whole bunch of aspirations but managed to build a prison around them with a stack of unconscious decisions made down the years. His collection included debt, too many clothes, negative self fulfilling prophecies, assumptions, comparisons, unused 'just in case' items and a fixed mindset that kept me at just the right level of safe. He lived month to month but he wasn't really living at all. The original post is located here: https://www.minimalings.com/post/the-bag-lady Please Rate & Review the Show!

1601: Your Priorities Express Your Values by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on Mindfulness for Every Day Life

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares why your priorities express your values. Episode 1601: Your Priorities Express Your Values by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on Mindfulness for Every Day Life Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares 10 slow and steady strategies for practical decluttering. Episode 1581: 10 Slow and Steady Strategies for Practical Decluttering by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Simple Living Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Quite content drifting through life in the comfort zone, he was collecting stuff, not exactly the stuff he wanted to collect but stuff none the less.

An Excerpt from the book Project 333 by Courtney Carver. Episode 1544: An Excerpt from Project 333 by Courtney Carver - The Emotion Chapter - Minimalism with Clothing & Dressing with Less Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Episode 1543: A Step-By-Step Guide on Letting Go of Expectations by Rebecca Crespo of Minimalism Made Simple on Intentional Life Rebecca is a New York native living in Spain.

Episode 1540: 4 Action Steps to Becoming More Mindful by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on Mindfulness Practice Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Episode 1508: How to Become a Minimalist (Or Just Simplify Your Life A Little) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Episode 1459: How to Let Go of the Guilt of Letting Go by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Minimalism & Freedom Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

1458: The Moment AND The Gift by Kacie Main on Finding A Positive Perspective In Life & How to find Gratitude

2 short posts from Kacie Main where she shares her thoughts on finding a positive perspective in life. Episode 1458: The Moment AND The Gift by Kacie Main on Finding A Positive Perspective In Life & How to find Gratitude Kacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares how to avoid holiday overwhelm by saying no to almost everything. Episode 1431: Avoid Holiday Overwhelm by Saying No to Almost Everything by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Minimalism Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares a reflection on her 30 day writing challenge. Episode 1408: A Reflection On My 30 Day Writing Challenge by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on How To Set Goals Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares 8 lessons to remember when traveling. Episode 1375: 8 Lessons to Remember When Traveling by Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog on How To Have Inspired Travel Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Kacie Main shares her thoughts on the healing process. Episode 1363: The Ruse by Kacie Main on How To Heal Ourselves & The Healing Process Kacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.

She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.    The original post is located here: http://moreofwhatmattersblog.com/learning-to-forgive-yourself-will-set-you-free/     Please Rate & Review the Show!

Episode 1312: Closet Detox: 10 Steps to End Closet Chaos by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Decluttering Clothes Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.

1309: Know Fear by Kacie Main on Acknowledging & Accepting Fear in Your Life

Kacie Main shares her thoughts on knowing fear. Episode 1309: Know Fear by Kacie Main on Acknowledging & Accepting Fear in Your Life Kacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.
