Over the past two years I've learnt so much about getting back to basics and living more simply and yet, in some ways I feel like we've barely scratched the surface. The first thing I realised was that living simply is not always simple, it takes time, accountability and a complete shift in thinking. The rewards for making the changes are incredible and inspire me everyday, to learn more, read more and connect with like minded souls walking this beautiful path. We began this journey two years ago, when we packed up our little old cottage and set off in our caravan headed for a new way of life. You can read my first back to basics post here, when we'd just planted our first little garden and were starting baby steps to living a more fulfilling way of life. Looking back now I'm so glad I've documented our process and I feel we've come such a long way. But each day is a new one and there's so much more to learn and explore and that's what is most exciting of all. Here are a few of the ways we've been working on to live a more conscious life.
