It's Complicated

Sascha Jones

The memories we create, how we treat each other and valuing people and our life more than things is what matters. Things get more complicated if we get carried away with our busy-ness and problems that in the grand scheme of it all don't really count.

Carl Phillips

The minimalist movement is in full swing. More so than ever before, a large percentage of us are realising that chasing more just isn't doing it for us. We need something else and that something else leads us to the pursuit of less.

22 Benefits of Living With the Right Sort of Less

Carl Phillips | Posted 03.15.2016 | Healthy Living
Carl Phillips

Chasing more is a broken model. It isn't working. More physical possessions beyond a certain point is just more stuff we have to manage. More money beyond a certain point doesn't necessarily equate to more happiness. It's clear, more isn't always the answer we seek.

For the Love of Chocolate, Please Stop Buying Generic Candy

Why do people buy fake chocolate? Generic candy is marketed really well. It comes dressed in a cute wrapper/box, and makes your holiday gift look more festive. It's also cheaper. When you buy generic you get a lot more candy for your money.

We all have that friend: every time you go to her house, everything is in its place, the counters are shining, and the toilet doesn't have that pink ring around the bowl.

Just Do the Math

Mitch Rosenzweig | Posted 02.03.2016 | GPS for the Soul
Mitch Rosenzweig

When things don't add up, simplify. Start with the fundamentals. Do unto others, be kind, love more and hate less. Share, pray and be grateful. Be honest and true to yourself. The world isn't perfect and neither are you. Pretty simple to add up. No calculator required.

The Internet is a great tool, but it is also a risky one. We have all fallen victim to the Internet's black hole effect, reemerging hours later to wonder where the day went. We pay in time and peace of mind what we get in "convenience." These are a few reasons why I keep wifi out of my home.

You might not know this, but I live out of a suitcase. Really. Like a carry-on. Your average orchid colored, two zipper compartment, Samsonite roller. And it goes where I go. Even in my own home I rarely unpack it.

Buy Nothing Day . . . But What About The Other 364 Days?

Katy Wolk-Stanley | Posted 11.17.2015 | HuffPost Home
Katy Wolk-Stanley

My problem with Buy Nothing Day is that, like Black Friday it's a one day event. Buy nothing this one day, but then shop normally the other 364 days. Yes, it gets people talking about our consumer society, and that's a good thing, but it's still just one day.
