What Coffee has taught me about Moderation

I’d like to think that most people have heard the expression “Everything in Moderation”, or some similar variation. Interestingly enough, the original saying “Moderation in all things” was said by the Roman Comic Dramatist Publius Terentius Afer in the second century BC.

Marc Bilodeau/ Health, Self Help

I approach everything using logic, reason, and an open-mind. Unfortunately, there is one weakness to this approach. It leaves emotions and feelings as secondary concerns.

I’m a Minimalist and practice my own Minimalism

Marc Bilodeau/ Health, Minimalism, Self Help

I believe in minimalism. Yet I have family, friends, possessions, a house, a car, and other modern conveniences of life. This doesn’t make a lot of sense to some people. Everyone knows that minimalist own a few meager possessions, wear all white clothes, live in seclusion, and roam the world. Right? Not necessarily. Although some minimalists choose that lifestyle, the definition of minimalism varies from
