Wow - the very first Sit. Breathe. Love. blog post! As I start to write, I'm feeling slightly nervous - I have so many hopes for this blog. I have the sincere wish that anyone who reads this blog will feel inspired to explore the themes of mindfulness and meditation for themselves. Because honestly, regular meditation will change your life.

"Practical, Action-Oriented Contentment and Compassion" by Leo Babauta


Leo Babauta has inspired millions through his writing on Zen Habits, where he's shared his experiences in building up great habits, cutting clutter and junkfood from his life, learning about great parenting and building a wonderful family, eliminating debt, increasing his income and productivity, and living a life that's more happy through and through.

Leo is now graciously participating in GiveGetWin with a practical class on "action-oriented contentment", and he sat down with Sebastian Marshall to share his thoughts on what motivates him, around what contentment is, on trusting yourself, on being compassionate and compassion as an impetus for action, on self-compassion and treating yourself well, and happiness in general.
