I’m definitely a fan of staying away from social media for mental health reasons. I’ve outright deleted my profiles SO. MANY. TIMES. over the years I’ve lost count.
It’s possible I’ve lost friends along the way, and it’s also possible I could’ve handled things better. But at the time it was necessary. I needed to cut the negative aspects out of my life.
Thing is, I’ll probably keep doing it.
I’ve been struggling for quite a while with this recent job restructuring / outsourcing. I’ve only just realised that I am now fully L3 Tech Support. No more of the really hands on stuff, I’ve been promoted. It’s just not the one I thought was coming.
We live life in the fast lane. We race to keep up with The Joneses. We are over-worked, over-committed and over-stressed, and we compete on how busy and important and sleep-deprived we are. But we don’t need to.
There is an ever-growing group of people who are saying no to life
lived at 110%. They are opting to slow down, simplify, say no and focus
on the things that are truly important. I’m one of them, and in The Slow
Home Podcast I chat to others who have adopted a similar approach to
life – slowing down, opting out, saying no.
Listen in to learn what makes people change, how life is different once you adopt a slower way of life, and what their advice is to anyone looking to get out of the fast lane.
