I started this site in 2015. Back then I shared articles and items I found from around the internet that I thought others might find interesting. Over the past week, I’ve been toying with the idea to return to it.
I’d thought that maybe this site wasn’t the place for it. Yet, as I’ve gotten back into writing on here, I realise that this isn’t going to be a business blog.
Slowly Lived is a project.
It’s a lifestyle I aspire to and for it to work I need to share a more personal view, not a third person or even first person approach to information.
So I have decided to return to my weekly Time Out Reads, sharing the nuggets of wisdom I have found from the past week.
I know I will never be able to go completely zero waste but I am trying to cut down on the amount we create. Polly over at Green Indy Blog shared her struggles and exceptions this week. A really interesting read that shows even the most avid zero waste follower struggles.
As a parent, mealtimes can be one of the most stressful times of the day. Not only to make sure you’re creating something everyone will want to eat, but also that it is balanced and healthy. I had never taken into consideration just how many meals I have made or served to my family. Erica from The Life on Purpose Movement informs us that the total and it’s astounding.
Rent your clothes
I don’t spend a fortune on clothing, in fact, I very rarely buy new things. Fashion is not really something I am interested in. You may have heard of the capsule wardrobe concept that swept across the world, partly after everyone read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo and partly down to many of the minimalist bloggers sharing their pursuit to a minimal wardrobe. Alden at EcoCult talks about her and her friend’s experience of renting clothes to add a new dimension to their capsule wardrobes.
Hope you find these useful.
