A few years ago my life was a constant rush, from the minute I woke up until the second I collapsed into bed late at night. I was running an online craft shop, a job I always thought would be my dream, yet I felt completely exhausted stressed and unfulfilled. I was doing so much, but none of it felt right. It was only when I finally allowed myself to slow down and begin taking care of me, that I was able to create a more meaningful life. By embracing a few simple ‘slow living’ principles I turned my life from hectic, stressful and unfulfilled to calm, organised and happy.
