Link Love: 76

Festive Bambi!

Festive Bambi!

I haven’t posted a Link Love in a while because honestly, I’m avoiding the news.  But I can’t avoid the Internet entirely. Here’s a few things that have peaked my interest lately.

Instead of detention, these students get meditation. Some days I need a mindful moment room too.

Loved this episode on Planet Money about Burnout.

I receive a good amount of emails from people who want to know if they too can live in an Airstream– even with their specific life situation. And my advice is always the same: you can, but you must throw away fears and limiting beliefs about yourself. (Here’s my exact advice.) And here’s more about The Path of Fearlessness.

Looking for ways to decorate a small space this holiday season? Check out these tips from the archives.

For the couple has everything, consider a personalized romance novel as a holiday gift. LOLOLOL.

And sometimes the best gift is in a white envelope. (Serious tears, y’all.)

Hope you are having the happiest of holidays.

Morning at the Airstream

I’m thinking of trying something a touch different with Link Love and using a photo of what’s going on in my life that week. This semester I had the chance to change my work schedule so I get up much earlier. I see the sunrise most mornings from the Airstream and I try to enjoy it. 🙂

I also think it makes more sense to publish Link Love on Fridays. It’s a delightful, almost-weekend treat and it gives me more time to discover the best of the web for that week. Let me know if you like the new format! Now on with Link Love! Continue reading

Link Love: 51

Link Love There’s so much to love this week!

We were featured on a Canadian non-profit housing website!

I get asked a lot about parking our Airstream. This website is filling the need of renting land for tiny houses.

This empty Sicilian town is giving away houses. Let’s all go!!!

Decluttering is the new juice cleanse (and equally annoying). I love decluttering, but I agree that “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” didn’t spark joy in me. (Here’s my thoughts on it.)

This week I talked about how we minimized books and art supplies. This guy gave away 1,000 books and learned to love reading again.

Want to never have kids? Calculate how much just the first year of their life will cost.

And similarly, systemically(?), Millennial men aren’t the dads they thought they’d be. This is a complicated problem, but I think a large part of the issue is the lack of paid maternity leave for men and women and inflexible work schedules.

Find The Thing You’re Most Passionate About, Then Do It On Nights And Weekends For The Rest Of Your Life. This is from The Onion, so obviously it’s a parody. It had me rolling because it was #tooreal.

Advice for people in their 20s. And pretty much everyone.

Become financially independent with these 5 habits.

How walking in nature changes your brain. Thoreau had it right.

And for when you can’t get out in nature… How to meditate anywhere.

Do fewer things, more often.

Similarly, stop worrying about what you’re not doing. I need to read this every day.

50 happy little things Bob Ross taught me. My favorite is: “Just scrape in a few indications of sticks and twigs and other little things in there. People will think you spend hours doing this.” So funny and so wise.

What if teachers were treated like professional athletes? Such a smart piece.
