The pursuit of happiness | Minimalist in the city

A powerful anecdotal comparison between two vastly different societies forces us to confront the true meaning of happiness in our modern world. I could not agree more with the sentiment here.

I haven't even read the book yet and my mind is …

The Holidays and Mindful Consumerism

The holidays should not be about indulgent consumerism. If you ask someone what the holidays are all about, you hear words like "family", "friends", "loved ones", "gathering" and "sharing".
