Gentle living

Gentle living is about being easy on yourself. It is about forgiving quickly, lowering expectations, infusing meaning into your days and smelling the proverbial roses.

In this section, I explore simplifying and decluttering all the habits and thought patterns that aren’t adding value to our lives. I share the tips and tricks I have learned along the way, without ever claiming that I have it all figured out (who does, anyway?). Together we can explore what it means to live a good life. I love hearing people’s feedback, so don’t be shy to leave a comment!

 

The meaning of meaningful rest

If you have been reading any of my recent posts, you will know that I have been in search of more rest recently. Meaningful rest, that is. After years of severely neglecting rest, it had become time for me to put it back into the spotlight. Prioritising meaningful rest has not come easily to me. I was so used to always doing something that I have had to figure out how to really implement this whole ‘nothing’ thing in an orderly way. January has been an incredibly restful month for example, whereas February saw me quickly slipping into old habits by filling up my diary to the brim. The beauty of having to figure out rest from scratch again means I have learnt a few things along the way. Things about what it means to rest and what makes rest meaningful to me. Let’s chat the meaning of meaningful rest.
