In an attempt to lead a simpler life, I chose a Minimalist Lifestyle for myself. I cannot even begin to describe that kind of impact it has had on my life. I feel light, happy & sorted.
It was sometime during this process of becoming a Minimalist, that I started thinking along the lines of the Mind – Body – Soul Balance. What was it that I could further do, to live a healthier, more happier & fulfilling life.I spoke to a lot of people. Read a lot of Lifestyle books. I did come across a lot of literature on it. It seems our generation is doing a lot of seeking on these lines. Seeking, because we don’t have it.
I somehow feel, our Grandparents & Parents had a better understanding of this, Body -Mind- Soul Balance than we do . I am sure this was not even something that they had to seek. They just had it & lived by it.
It is not that they worked less harder than we do or had to face lesser challenges in their lives. It is just that they still had a sense of balance in their life, a simplicity in their lifestyle that we seem to lack.
They ate good, organic food. Led simpler lives ( without cellphones, Internet & wifi) Had a strong sense of community & family life. They had Balance in their life. They lived long & healthy happy lives. ( I say that looking at both my grandparents, who lived on for 80 + years & were in great health till they passed away of old age.
I think it is important, we really take a look at both generations & really think about the kind of lives we are leading & the kind of lives we should be leading.
So starting from March, I am going to make some changes in my life & try living in a way that will help me achieve the Body- Mind – Soul Balance.
Minimalism was a very helpful first step towards it. It is life changing.
Now onto changes at a more personal level. Diet, Exercise & an effort towards a more Holistic Life.
Stay tuned for more!
Cant wait to share this Journey with you.
As always, I would love to hear about your stories towards seeking balance & towards living a better life. Leave them in the comments section!
