Sat, 18 Feb 2017 00:35:00 +0000

By Leo Babauta Lots of us would like a better body, an amazing workout habit, and a diet that celebrities would die for. OK, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but most of us definitely have an ideal when it comes to fitness. We want to be super healthy, and we strive for it. Maybe we strive […]

How to Make Friends

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 18:31:17 +0000

By Leo Babauta I’m writing this guide for my kids as they grow up and go out into the world — but it’s for anyone who wants to connect with others. I’m writing it for my teenage self, who was shy and awkward and self-conscious. I’m writing it as a reminder to my current self, […]

A Loving Guide to Going Vegan

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 15:41:14 +0000

By Leo Babauta A loved one has decided to go vegetarian and has struggled in a couple areas, so I thought I’d write this guide for her. I’m writing it for those who want to go vegan, because that’s what I am, but the ideas apply to those going vegetarian as well. This is for […]

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 21:26:51 +0000

By Leo Babauta Today I deleted several apps from my phone: Twitter, Reddit, Feedly, Snapchat, the N.Y. Times app, and more. I’m letting go of distractions, or at least learning to. In fact, I made a list of things I’m letting go of: Twitter (except to post my latest articles) Reddit Favorite blogs & websites […]

The Way of Openness: Moving Away from Comfort & Security

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 19:19:25 +0000

This moving away from comfort and security, this stepping out into what is unknown, uncharted and shaky – that’s called liberation. ~Pema Chodron By Leo Babauta It’s human nature to desire comfort and security. Unfortunately, that tendency is what causes most of our problems. We humans tend not to like uncertainty, discomfort, fear, instability, drastic […]

Stepping Out of Old Habits & Deeper Into Mindfulness

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 18:00:01 +0000

By Leo Babauta Most of our lives are spent following unconscious, habitual patterns. We wake and start immediately with our usual distractions, fall into regular eating habits, interact with people reactively out of old mental patterns, procrastinate and put off exercise out of old mental habits, are constantly thinking of something other than what we’re […]

Wanting Someone Else to Fulfill Our Lives

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 17:57:49 +0000

By Leo Babauta I have a friend who is lonely, who has such a good heart and desperately wants to find a partner who appreciates that goodness, to share a life with. We have all felt this, I’m guessing: this desire for a deep connection, this hope that another person will just get us and […]

Approaching Life with Beginner’s Mind

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 16:11:56 +0000

By Leo Babauta A lot of our troubles could be solved by one simple practice. A lot of joy could be found with the same practice. And it is simple: practice seeing life with a beginner’s mind. I’m stealing this of course from Zen Buddhism’s shoshin and Shunryu Suzuki’s Zen Mind Beginner’s Mind, and I’ve […]

Finding Stillness

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 23:11:15 +0000

By Leo Babauta I’ve heard from many people who say, “I think too much,” or “I can’t get out of my own head.” This is pretty common. Thinking isn’t the problem, but the struggle comes when we’re constantly spinning stories in our heads and getting caught up in them. Our minds jump from one thing […]
