WHAT IS SLOW LIVING?
Another key element of slow living is letting go of the fear of missing out—and instead of trying to do every single thing, honing in on the things that matter. A cornerstone of being slow is saying no and developing strong boundaries (Boundaries theme coming in the membership February). It’s relearning the lost art of saying no, of prioritizing, of taking the time to pause, reflect, and look at your life and say, ‘What is really important?’ Then focus your time and attention on those things and let everything else go.
If you are wondering how to start your own exploration of slow, here are a few starter tips.
10 ways to get started with SLOW LIVING
- Understand that busyness is a choice
- Define what is most important to you (essentials)
- Say no to things that you do not want or need (the non essentials)
- Start slow and small by downshifting where you can
- Practice being present (even in the mundane)
- Create space and margin in your day (and life)
- Adopt a slow information diet
- Commit to putting your life before your work
- Get outside to clear your mind
- Find inspiration all around you
VISION HELPS BOUNDARIES
To adapt to slow living you truly need a strong clear vision on what you want your life to look like. You can make a monthly vision or a very specific family vision. Vision (vision month will also be a theme in january) is a powerful tool to help you put down boundaries. So if you have been to Self Mastery, visit your notes from the class and look at your vision for your life. If you are a newbie to vision work, take a moment to contemplate what you want your life to be like and write it down. It can be a bit challenging (in self mastery we go into the depths of this work as well as inner code and we will do a whole month on this in January where we GO DEEP) at first but see what comes up and let it marinate.
We hope this helps you with making December the best one yet!
So much love
