This month in Tampa Bay is ultra-special in that it ushers in our fave time of year—autumn on the Gulf Coast. Sure to be a pleaser (hurricanes aside), the cooler temps begin to flow from the north creating a perfectly temperate environment. To accompany such fine ambience, we hope you enjoy this month’s read, which contains meaningful and potent information to be applied in everyday life.
This month’s Inspiration article is on Intuition. “Once a key factor in our ancestors’ ability to survive and later reduced to a New Age curiosity, it is now a subject of research in the military, which has renamed it sensemaking. Beneath the clatter of modern living, the quiet voice within each of us is alive and well, an often-ignored superpower.”
Recent research indicates clutter is linked to higher levels of depression, stress, fatigue and burn- out. Less Stuff More Joy is a superb read rife with promise. “There is no one-size-fits-all approach for simpler living; each person crafts what best fits their values and needs. Three common strands have emerged: minimalist simplicity—living with less clutter and busyness; ecological simplicity—living with the sustainability of the planet as the priority; and conscious simplicity—driven by deep personal and spiritual values. The approaches can overlap yet each has its unique flavor.”
With an open heart and an open mind, thrive reading on!
