Less is More.

Dear Reader,

Simplicity.

The definition given by the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is that “other things being equal simple theories are better.”

Simplicity is a state of mind, one that requires neither fortune nor fame, and yet it is a truly elegant and sophisticated way to live. I like to think of it as a state of grace, and a mode de vie that we can all aspire to. Simplicity will be a reccuring theme in this healthy living blog which I hope will inspire us all to live simpler, richer, healthier and happier lives.

A Votre Sante!

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” -Antoine de St. Exupery

    Hi Aimee,
    I enjoyed your explanation about “simplicity” and have been trying to declutter my surroundings a little bit every day. What’s harder to do is “decluttering” your mind. Do you have any suggestions? Enjoying your new blog site.

    Hi Chris,

    The word mindfulness comes to mind when I think of decluttering the mind. Slowing down, cultivating awareness. One way to do this is to try meditation. Just sitting quietly with your eyes closed and your body relaxed for 5 minutes each day can help foster mindfulness….letting the mind clear, focusing on your breath. I’ll talk some more about meditation soon!
