Danae Smith is East Coast born and raised, but a West Coast girl at heart, She is the founder of This Wondrous Life, a lifestyle blog, rooted in pursuing a life lived simply, slowly, and with community.

1798: [Part 2] How to Be Patient in an Impatient World by Mark Manson on The Skinner Box
684

Mark Manson tells us how we can remain patient in an impatient world. This is part 2 of 2.

Episode 1798: [Part 2] How to Be Patient in an Impatient World by Mark Manson on The Skinner Box

Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew.
By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well.
That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.
Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

Episode 1792: The Joy of Open Space by Rose Lounsbury on Finding Peace in Your Daily Environment

Rose Lounsbury is a keynote speaker, Amazon bestselling author, simplicity coach, and still-sane mom of triplets. (Yes, you heard that right!) She helps overwhelmed people create open spaces in their homes, workspaces, and more importantly–their minds–by letting go of the excess stuff that gets in the way. Rose started her own simplicity journey in 2012, after getting fed up with spending all of her free time dealing with my stuff. As she slowly let go of everything that didn’t matter to her, she discovered some amazing things: free time, peace of mind, & clarity. Rose became a simplicity coach to help others do the same thing.

1780: Laziness Is Less Of A Thing Than You Think by Dominique Alessi on Finding Your Values & Living Mindfully

Dominique Alessi eases our perceptions of laziness.

Episode 1780: Laziness Is Less Of A Thing Than You Think by Dominique Alessi on Finding Your Values & Living Mindfully

Dominique Alessi is a former ballerina, a software project manager, and a wellness coach. Although she was interested in health for a long time, it took years of anxiety and burnout, and a demanding Silicon Valley career, to realize her approach was way too complicated.

And so her quest for simplicity began.
​She reoriented herself around the fundamentals of wellness, and started filtering out anything more complicated.
She crafted systems and routines to streamline her life and reduce her reliance on memory and willpower.
She cultivated a deeper awareness of her personal tendencies and the habit-change strategies that would work best for her.

Now, she's sharing these things with you—the realizations, the systems, and the hacks—so that you can lead a healthy, happy, and fulfilling life (without burning out in the process).

Bradley Charbonneau's dad died in 2015 and it was as if, for the first time, that he realized we were mortal and had only this life to live.

Bradley's now published 12 books, closed down the company he founded (and realized he hated), and moved his family to Europe. It doesn't cost him energy, it provides him with energy. Every Single Day. It all started with a single decision to write every day. When are you going to start living the life you were meant to live?

Over the years, Danae has found her heart pulled so strongly towards living a slower, more simple life. In a time where we are inundated with the message of instant gratification; where success is defined by numbers and accolades, and social media has begun to define how we live our lives, She desires to build a space and create a culture that shows another way---a more simple and slow approach to life.

Mark Manson shares his why the best things in life are all backwards. This is part 2 of 2.

Episode 1754: [Part 2] Why the Best Things in Life Are All Backwards by Mark Manson on Emotional Self-Control

Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew.
By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well.
That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.
Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

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.

1732: 3 Dire Reasons to Simplify Your Life by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Minimalism for Money & Health
435

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less tells us why it's necessary to simplify our lives due to three reasons.

Episode 1732: 3 Dire Reasons to Simplify Your Life by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Minimalism for Money & Health

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 1707: Letting Go of Imposter Syndrome by Chris Lovett of Minimalings on How To Justify Your Success & Mental Health

Chris Lovett is a minimalist, life coach, speaker and career mentor but it didnt 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.

1697: Surround Yourself With Good and That's How You Will Feel AND Over-Planning Kills Magic by Katie Ping

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog talks about why surrounding ourselves with good will help us feel good AND how over-planning kills the magic.

Episode 1697: Surround Yourself With Good and That's How You Will Feel AND Over-Planning Kills Magic by Katie Ping

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 1673: Moonlit Bubbles, Spooky Mangroves and Sleeping Iguanas by Bradley Charbonneau of Pass The Sour Cream

Bradley Charbonneau's dad died in 2015 and it was as if, for the first time, that he realized we were mortal and had only this life to live. Unless you're a cat, but he wasn't a cat and he wasn't living the life he thought that he was supposed to live. Since then, he's been writing. Every Single Day. Bradley's now published 12 books, closed down the company he founded (and realized he hated), and moved his family to Europe. It doesn't cost him energy, it provides him with energy. Every Single Day. It all started with a single decision to write every day. When are you going to start living the life you were meant to live?

Episode 1669: Connecting Through Simplicity AND Are You Living Your Highest, Best Life? by Kristine Klussman on Simple Living

Kristine Klussman specialized in Health Psychology (Behavioral Medicine) at Harvard Medical School, then founded and ran the Health Psychology program and post-doctoral training programs at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. She found her work with cancer and cardiac patients inspiring, uplifiting, and humbling. She found so many of those going through life-threatening illness were - sometimes for the first time in their lives - absolutely clear what truly mattered to them: authenticity and connection. In 2016, she founded a non-profit to focus full-time on trying to understand, explain and teach what she now believes is the single most meaningful and rewarding aspect of our existence.

Episode 1660: 6 Ways to Find Joy When Nothing is Going Right by Michael Blankenship of Get Your Gusto Back on Resiliency

Michael Blankenship wants you to know that he gets it if you're tired, you're burnt out and you're sick of doing the same thing every day, quickly marching toward a grave stone with nothing interesting written on its face. Michael felt that way once, but one day, everything changed. Once he'd taken back control of his life, he realized that his gusto - that lightly glowing ember inside all of us - was just waiting to be reignited, waiting for torch to touch coals and set it ablaze. He believes the same thing is possible for you, no matter how far gone you are.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares the greatest secret to productivity that no one is talking about.

Episode 1655: The Greatest Secret to Productivity That No One is Talking About 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.

1621: Maybe Variety isn't the Spice of Life by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on Productivity Hacks
539

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares why maybe variety isn't the spice of life.

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.

575

An excerpt from the book Think Like A Rocket Scientist by Ozan Varol.

Episode 1620: An Excerpt from the book Think Like A Rocket Scientist by Ozan Varol on Simple Strategies to Improve Your Life

Ozan Varol is the author of the bestselling book Think Like a Rocket Scientist: Simple Strategies You Can Use to Make Giant Leaps in Work and Life. He's a husband. Dog father. Law professor. Soccer lover. Movie watcher who still gets Netflix DVDs in the mail.

Ozan is dedicated to helping people like you to dream big and reimagine the status quo. He believes that outdated conventional wisdom holds us back. He believes that society has seduced us into assuming that flying lower is safer than flying higher, that coasting is better than soaring, and that small dreams are wiser than bigger ones. Ozan believes that reimagining—not just resisting—the status quo is the key to unlocking our full potential.

Episode 1609: How To Reclaim Your Time and Live With Intention AND Connect With the Meaning In Your Life by Kristine Klussman

Kristine Klussman specialized in Health Psychology (Behavioral Medicine) at Harvard Medical School, then founded and ran the Health Psychology program and post-doctoral training programs at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. She found her work with cancer and cardiac patients inspiring, uplifting, and humbling. She found so many of those going through life-threatening illness were - sometimes for the first time in their lives - absolutely clear what truly mattered to them: authenticity and connection. In 2016, she founded a non-profit to focus full-time on trying to understand, explain and teach what she now believes is the single most meaningful and rewarding aspect of our existence.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Episode 1578: Trophies, Medals & Minimalism by Chris Lovett of Minimalings on How Do I Declutter Sentimental Items

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.

Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle shares his thoughts on a first principles lifestyle.

Episode 1571: First Principles Lifestyle by Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on How To Design A Better Life for Yourself

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.

After years of impulse spending on Amazon and elsewhere, Anthony Ongaro realized that his one-click purchase habits were more of a physical Twitch than an intentional action.

1566: The Morning Routine Effect (What to Expect and How to Get Started) by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less
496

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less shares the morning routine effect.

Episode 1566: The Morning Routine Effect (What to Expect and How to Get Started) 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.
