A life well lived with simplicity in mind is exceptionally rewarding. Not only is it uncluttered, it is unconsumed and rediscovered.
To live a life naturally and mindfully one can expect abundance, not necessarily in finances, but in more important matters of life:
Balance comes from eating right, the diet that works best for you. We aren’t all the same: we are gluten-free, some are paleo, others are vegetarian – embrace locally produced food and celebrate diversity! Eliminate processed store-bought packages and use basic ingredients and learn (or relearn) to cook at home. Your mental clarity will thank you for it.
Good things come when frustration leaves the room. Emotional, digital and physical clutter weighs us down, the wonderful thing is that it doesn’t have to be that way, the weight can be lifted not with physical strength, but with the creativity and flexibility of the mind. When we perceive life in a more joyful way, days become less stressed and positivity reigns.
Smiling heals your soul. A grin is a gift that we can give freely and receive in return. Happiness comes when we are relaxed and comfortable with who we are, living life mindfully and away from negative energies promotes merriment – a wonderful feeling to capture.
Living life naturally and mindfully is keeping the Earth in focus, in the forefront. Respecting nature is essential if we are to pass our ambitions of living lightly onto future generations. Authenticity is required if we are to truly love where we live, both in our immediate locations and within the world.
A natural life supports textures, not shimmering surfaces. Handmade garments may be woven or knitted with handspun threads and yarn, in patterns that are different from conventional machine-produced fine fabrics. It isn’t the number of threads that count, but the natural materials and the handwork behind them.
Common sense prevails in living simply – off the land or in the city.
