We shouldn’t feel guilty about the technology choices that we make. Just be mindful of what those choices are. The real danger isn’t getting addicted to technology. It’s not realizing if we have. So stay aware…but also, celebrate the magic!

(P.S. This is the first video I’ve edited with LumaFusion on my iPad Pro!)

Season 3, Episode 3

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about Portland, the Pacific Northwest, and the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a life that’s most meaningful to you.

We’re all told we need to say No to the things in life that aren’t all that important or meaningful to us in order to say Yes to that which truly matters. But what if you HAVE NO CLUE what is most meaningful to you? What if you are in the middle of a creative slump, an “existential crisis,” or just a transition to a new season of life? Maybe there’s room to give yourself permission to say Yes to that slump, that crisis. Make space for your indecisiveness. Try a little bit of this, a little bit of that. See what sticks. See what resonates. I’m going through this process right now!

Theaters, urban parks, old churches, classic 19th and early 20th-century architecture — Portland’s Cultural District has it all.

Do you ever feel like a failure? Ever worry you’re not measuring up, that “they” are always more successful than you are? Maybe the issue isn’t that you’re actually a failure, but you’re struggling with the emotions of failure, and that is something we can work with!

This week’s challenge is to practice the power of observation! Learn all about a fantastic awareness training technique I learned from Mindsight by Dr. Daniel Siegel. And of course more Portland awesomeness, more trains, and more coffee! (Yes, Portland has some of the best coffee around. It’s sort of our thing.)

At last, the video you most definitely weren’t waiting for, but got anyway! I’m rebooting my channel with a new name and a new focus, and I’m committing to releasing new videos every week. They won’t all be as “produced” as this one, but hopefully they’ll be fun and exciting and inspirational enough to be worthy of your interest. So please like, subscribe, yada yada, and let me know what you think!

Emotions are like looking at the fuel gauge in your car. The gauge can tell you how much gas in in the car, but it won’t tell you the reason why it’s full or empty. To know that, you’ll have to dig deeper.

Most negative emotions are the result of misdirection. The particular thing you think you’re upset about isn’t really at the heart of the matter. In the end, everything boils down to this root question your subconscious mind is asking: Do I Feel Loved?

—from a journal entry I wrote 5 years ago #mindfulness

Going through a bit of a rough patch this month…reason isn’t important, but what is important is just how much I’m having to wrestle with my brain to stay positive and focused. I almost had a full-blown panic attack earlier this week because I let worry and dark ruminations get the better of me. But I’m making headway by challenging myself to get more sleep, spend more time on exercise, and do something creative and fun every day to recharge my batteries. Living in the now beats battling fictional tomorrows any day! #mindfulness
