You scribble down your to-dos as they pour in, race through your day, working to scratch off every task before the sunsets – only to feel a sense of ‘less-than’ when the sun dips below the horizon before they’re crossed off. You ask yourself if you accomplished enough, served your family well enough, or whether you could’ve pushed a little harder.
This is likely a scenario you’re familiar with. The pressure to work harder, do more, and accomplish it all in a day’s work.
But what we’re less familiar with within this modern-day culture is the slow living movement. A movement that urges us to re-evaluate the pace at which we live and rethink how we glorify ‘busy’. It prompts us to think about what life could look like if we simplified different areas of our lives and spent more time connecting with the simple pleasures in life. This slowed pace creates ‘white space’ in our schedule – the margin in your day creating fuel and sustainability to live the life you dream of”. That allows you to nourish your mind, body, and soul. The breath that allows you to then serve other areas of your life more fully when called to do so. White space is the space you create that breathes life into your core and spirit – the ‘you’ that is energized, vibrant, and leads a life filled with intention and clarity.
Embracing a slow living lifestyle + prioritizing white space has three key benefits:
The more time spent nurturing and protecting the white space in each day, the greater improvement your mental health, physical well-being, and relationships will stand to see. A matter of minutes a day is enough to start seeing changes in your outlook and a shift towards the life you’ve been yearning for.
