"Slow down, simplify and be kind." Naomi Judd

What is Slow and Simple living?

Slow living and Simple living are two seperate things but mesh well together.

Together they are a lifestyle and a slower approach to everyday life, focusing on

simplicity, your way of thinking, what and how you eat, your home. Being intentional,

mindful and purposeful. To connect with nature and find beauty and joy in the simple 

things. Show gratitude and give back to our community, our neighbours and ourselves.

After all "How we spend our day is, of course, is how we spend our lives." Annie Dillard.

A fast approach tends to be a superficial one, but when you slow down you begin to engage more deeply with whatever it is you’re doing. You’re also forced to confront what’s happening inside you – which is one of the reasons why I think we find it so hard to slow down. Speed becomes a form of denial. It’s a way of running away from those more deeper, tangled problems. Instead of focusing on questions like who am I, and what is my role here, it all becomes a superficial to-do list. — Carl Honoré
