With all the time we’ve been spending inside, the line between our work and home life has blurred and the burnout is very real. That’s why it’s more important than ever to slow down and take stock of what’s really important in our lives. It’s only when we slow down that we’re truly able to recharge, refocus, and relax.

Here are a few ways to embrace the slow living lifestyle.

Unplug and disconnect

The first step is to create opportunities to disconnect and practise being more present in the moment. Technology should exist to enrich and enhance your life, not rule every minute of your day-to-day life. Set limits on screen time and stick to them!

Take time for yourself

A vacation or spa day would be nice, but isn’t necessarily realistic, especially if you’re a busy mom. Taking time for yourself could mean something as simple as enjoying a wholesome, flavourful meal, made with quality ingredients.

Stonemill’s naturally fermented bread is allowed to rise naturally over time, creating great tasting bread with no artificial preservatives, flavours, or colours. This natural fermentation process yields a more flavourful bread—you can practically taste the time and care that Stonemill has taken to produce quality bread like their Sourdough Multigrain Rye. A source of fibre and iron, Stonemill Sourdough Multigrain Rye is made with Canadian-grown rye, and contains no added fat, dairy, or soy.

Learn to say no

You’ll never find time to slow down if your calendar is full of obligations, whether work or personal. Ask yourself, ‘What’s really important?’ Then focus your time and energy on those things, and let go of the FOMO. Once you embrace slow living, all the little things that make life great become a whole lot more enjoyable.
