WELCOME TO THE SLOW HOME SUMMER SERIES! BEN AND I ARE TAKING A BREAK OVER JANUARY, SO WE’RE WE REVISITING SOME OF THE BEST EPISODES OF 2016.
In today’s episode, I sit down with Jonathan Fields – founder and host of The Good Life Project, author, father, life-long learner and all-round wonderful human.
We talk about what it means to live a good life, why the power of choice is a game-changer in how we choose to spend our days, and the hugely traumatic event that led Jonathan to question his definition of ‘a good life’.
Jonathan and I also chat about the delicious irony of advocating a slower, simpler way of life when in the midst of a busy season (when we first spoke, Jonathan was in the midst of launching his book) but also why it’s not necessarily a bad thing to experience busy-ness some times.
Jonathan explains the difference between mindful living and practicing mindfulness, and has some incredibly practical tips on using technology to live more intentionally – flipping on its head the idea that technology is only good for distraction and faux-connection.
Such a wide-ranging and beautiful conversation, that’s certain to leave you feeling inspired and motivated to continue the quest for your own version of a ‘good life’.
