Minimalist Monday: Minimalist Schedule for Maximum Productivity Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Minimalist

I always feel like I have 50 things going on.Granted, a lot of it is self-inflicted because I'm always coming up with projects or tasks that I need to do, should do and less often, want to do. I've also been freelancing a little here and there so random projects crop up on a moments notice and as my publisher finishes putting my new cookbook together, I'll get an email asking for another picture, a clarification ...

Minimalist Monday: Going Minimalist with Social Media Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Minimalist

Instead of rearranging my closet (next weekend) or taking the minimalist approach to the rest of the house (more future projects) I decided to take 'minimalist' to my virtual life this week.

Finding Work-Life Balance Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Minimalist

Last Friday (in my first lifestyle post!) I discussed the difference between Eating to Live and Living to Eat---something I've come to understand (and appreciate) while living here in St. Maarten.

To summarize the post in one sentence: The French have taught me to eat to live, and live my eating (aka slow the hell down and enjoy every bite of my sandwich--and eat with purpose). 

I loved all of the responses that came in---and quickly noticed ...
