Simple Living Habits

Simple Living Habits

We all know how eating good food, getting enough sleep, exercising more, and using social media less can make our lives better. It might be obvious but it isn't always easy.

When we take a moment to identify what our priorities are, and where our time is being wasted; it's possible to create a life that's simpler and easier by adopting slow habits that minimise overwhelm.

These are the simple living habits that have helped us to live a more considered life.

Have A Capsule Wardrobe

Having a capsule wardrobe keeps style simple and straightforward. Perfect for those of us who enjoy fashion but don't want to be overwhelmed by choice. Learn more about creating a capsule wardrobe, where to find style inspiration, and styling sustainable outfits.

Reflect On Mood

Checking in with ourselves every day helps us to reflect on our mood. By recognising how we're feeling, and acknowledging how that's going to impact our day. I use the Co-Star app to ask myself questions and understand myself better.

Eat Well and Intuitively

Food should be a joy not a struggle. Some people find eating the same thing every day a useful way to keep their life simple. I prefer to eat intuitively with abundance, and enjoy every mouthful.

Get The Hard Stuff Done

Get the important, boring, or anxiety-inducing tasks out of the way as soon as possible. Thinking about them only eats into your day and take up head space. Get them out of the way and it's an immediate weight lifted.

Walk Every Day

Walking gives us the chance to wake up slowly, clear our heads, and focus on the day. Even if it's a short walk, fresh air and exercise can completely change our mood. My favourite time of day is early in the morning when the world is still quiet.

Do More Of What Makes You Happy

Making time for the things we enjoy is so important to our health and wellbeing. If you find yourself thinking, "I wish I had more time to do that." Consider how you could make time. I limit how long I spend online to make time for creative pursuits. The only way to develop interests and make time for hobbies is to prioritise them.
