Mental Resiliency: Letting Go of the Guilt of Not Getting Things Done

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 12:00:44 +0000

By Leo Babauta It happens to all of us: we don’t get done what we hoped to get done, then we feel stressed or guilty about it. It’s time to let that go, because it’s not helping us. We can build resiliency around this, with a little mental training. And it will help us in […]

Warm Ocean Mind: Becoming Immersed in the Moment

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 21:12:43 +0000

By Leo Babauta Have you ever been on vacation, perhaps floating in warm ocean water, or lounging on a deck or hammock, completely relaxed? There’s a way in which you open your mind to everything around you, not thinking about it but just fully in tune with your surroundings, with everything in this moment. There […]

Grand Canyon Focus: The Practice of Full Devotion to a Single Task

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 02:21:18 +0000

By Leo Babauta There is a coffee shop here in Tokyo (where I’m visiting this week), Bear Pond Espresso, that has been called the best coffee shop in the world. The owner and barista, Katsu Tanaka, is a master of his craft. Tanaka-san only serves his world-famous espresso for two hours a day. When asked why, […]

Develop the Powerful Habit of Mindful Focus

Tue, 03 Apr 2018 18:24:34 +0000

By Leo Babauta Creating a life of focus, purpose and mindfulness is a tough thing these days. If you’re like me, you want to bring forth your gifts to the world, but you’re pulled in a thousand directions, plagued by overwhelm, distractions, a ton of messages and emails, and so many obligations that it’s causing […]

Four Antidotes to Procrastination

Thu, 29 Mar 2018 18:34:03 +0000

By Leo Babauta Lately I’ve been procrastinating a bit more than normal, and of course it doesn’t feel great. The truth is, though, that there are a number of good reasons for my procrastination: I’ve had some serious jetlag and sleep issues, which means my mind is tired and just needs some rest. So I […]

A Tea Trip for the Ages

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 18:55:53 +0000

Gabor of Zhao Zhou, Budapest “Tea is a religion of the art of life.” ~Kakuzō Okakura, The Book of Tea By Leo Babauta Today I am finishing an unplanned around-the-world trip with my friend Tynan that featured some of the best tea experiences I’ve ever had. The generosity of the tea shop owners and tea enthusiasts […]

Becoming a Master of the Time-Scarcity Demon

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 01:24:19 +0000

By Leo Babauta It’s something most of us deal with every day, often without realizing it’s there: a feeling of time scarcity. We know it well: the feeling of having too much to do and not enough time to do it all. This is true not only of work — where we have too many […]

How to Be Calm

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 20:35:43 +0000

By Leo Babauta I’ve often been described as a “calm” person. I’m not sure if they really mean “boring,” but I’m happy to be calm most of the time. When others are stressing out, I can help calm them down. When things aren’t going well, I calmly take appropriate action instead of falling apart. When […]

Creating Structure to Go Deep

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 23:55:17 +0000

By Leo Babauta A friend of mine was telling me about two of the most successful times of his often very scattered life … and they both came when he was very focused on one learning project. Having a single focus really allowed him to grow — not only to deeply learn the topic he […]

The Craving for Wholeness That Drives Our Actions

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 17:42:37 +0000

By Leo Babauta There’s a sense of incompleteness in our lives. We have felt it since adolescence, at least, if not since early childhood — it’s a feeling that something is wrong with us, that something is missing, or that we’re missing out on something in the world. It’s a feeling of disconnection or loneliness […]
