Hope you are feeling a sense of renewed inspiration for eco friendly living after our first iteration of The Weekend Conscious last week (if not, you can get the zero waste tips here). This week I was inspired to learn more about the slow living movement I’ve seen floating around Instagram for quite some time now. I’ve heard of slow food and slow fashion, and of course conscious living, and I think the slow living movement kind of encompasses all of that together. To put it simply, I think slow living is all about mindfulness and intention. It’s a way of staying in the present moment, and directing your attention to that moment, not to thoughts or worries of the future, concerns about the past, etc. (If you meditate, you know how difficult this can be.)
I’ll be sure to share my own experience with slow living (in a big city, too) soon but for now we have 5 experiences and ideas to share with those of you curious to learn more. Happy reading!
