Greetings
A warm welcome to the inaugural newsletter from Glad.is.

Glad.is is a resource for being, thinking, and doing. We create and curate relevant content for mindful living in a modern world, and provide all the tools and resources you need to be inspired to live in your inner beauty.

We cover topics from mindfulness to wisdom traditions, quantum physics, philosophy, and many things mystical too. Whether you’re dabbling or diving into this world, you’re not alone! If you are interested in seeking a higher state of awareness, believe in the interconnectedness of all living things, or desire an extraordinary life, you’re in good company. We have been working hard doing what we love to create a platform for this community.

Whether you’re looking for advice, body and soul work, a much-needed retreat, a local gathering, or a healer/practitioner, our directory is the Yelp of spiritual help.

We hope you are excited to share Glad.is with others and help us grow our community. We are the revolutionary forces of gratitude and compassion, and we’re glad to be in your company.

We also love contributions from our neighbors in this community! Email us at hello@glad.is with any articles, tips, or ideas for our readers.

Namaste,

It seemed natural to draw upon the article because so much of the research that was described resonated with Buddhist teachings. Read more

My usual sign-off with my brothers is something like, “If you go wackadoo on me, I’m getting on a plane to kick your butt.” After watching many members of our family check out from daily life through different kinds of substance addictions, nervous breakdowns or mental disorders, and even escaping into religious obsession, we feel we need to check each other’s stuff, make sure we’re still all here. You never know, in my family, you could wake up crazy (or at least numb.) My own journey to the mindful life sprang from observing those around me check out. Read more

Warren Buffett once said, “Doing work you don’t love just to build a resume is like saving sex for old age.” His bluntness has quite the eye-opening effect. Read more

Daily Bits of Gladness

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
