In today’s digital age, life can feel stressful, fast-paced, and intrusive. People often spend practically every waking moment looking at either their phone, computer/tablet, or the TV, which can certainly take its toll, particularly when spending a lot of time on social media and reading the news. This is why so many people are now looking to take a step back and live a more simplistic lifestyle, which could have a huge impact on your happiness and overall wellbeing. So, how can you live a more simplistic lifestyle in today’s day and age? Read on for a few ideas to start trying today.
Limit Screen Time
Perhaps the most effective step to take is to limit your screen time. It is not realistic or even practical to completely eliminate screens from your life, but it is possible to limit your screen time which will immediately help you to disconnect and lead a more simplistic lifestyle. You can find your screen time stats on your phone with ease and then make a concerted effort to spend less time looking at any kind of screen. In particular, avoid screens before bed to improve your sleep.
Meditation is another fantastic way to take a step back, disconnect and focus on the present. Many people have turned to meditation in recent times as a way to de-stress and improve their mental health, plus this is an activity that you can simply do from home when you have 5 or 10 minutes.
Grow Your Own Food
Growing your own food will help you to feel more self-sufficient as well as reduce your environmental impact. Going back to basics by growing your own veg can be hugely rewarding and satisfying, plus you also will find that it should encourage you to eat a healthier diet while lowering your grocery bill each month.
Leading on from this, hunting is also a good activity for going back to basics and spending more time in nature (a great way to disconnect). You should also find that hunting helps you to be more self-sufficient and reliant while giving you a greater appreciation for nature and wildlife. Safety is the most important aspect when hunting, and ilearntohunt has a FL hunters safety class to help you to learn how to hunt safely and ethically.
Spend Time With Loved Ones
It is important for your wellbeing to spend time with loved ones, so you should prioritize this and find ways to connect with those that mean the most to you often. Additionally, you should find it helpful to cut back on social media and to cut out toxic people from your life - a simplistic lifestyle is about quality relationships over quantity.
This post will hopefully inspire you to make some positive changes to your life and to lead a more simplistic lifestyle. In today’s digital age, life can feel stressful and fast-paced, but this does not have to be the case when you make some adjustments and focus on what really matters.
