What is Slow Living?
At its heart, slow living is about simplicity. It is about figuring out what is important to you and making time to do those things. It is about cutting out lots of the everyday bullshit we are surrounded by and often feel we are drowning in.
Most of us spend too much money, have too many things and too little time to enjoy them. We overcommit for fear of missing out and yet while we run around in a whirl of busy we are often missing out on what really matters. Busy has become a virtue but we believe that it is making us unhappy and unfulfilled. Why are we so obsessed with just being occupied? We can be so much more!
Life should be about spending time with loved ones, joy, creating and being fully aware of the moment. Humans are designed to find meaning and we should all take time to find our own.
Taking time to figure out what makes us truly happy is an important part of living well and when we do it we also impact the rest of the world. We are all connected and when one of us becomes happier that is better for everyone.
What is Slow Box?
Every month we send out packages of inspiring products and gifts to encourage you to live well. We believe that true happiness comes from feeling connected to the people around us, the natural world and our own feelings. Lots of people are realising that while we live in an increasingly interconnected world they actually feel more detached. This is easy to do when we are constantly taking in other perspectives and lives. We can lose ourselves. Being in touch with who we truly are, allows us to fully engage with the world in a fulfilling and positive way.
SlowBox is curated to bring you ethical products which will help you slow down, think and connect in a way that brings you joy. We search for the latest makers, artisans and small businesses who create beautiful products in a sustainable, ethical way. Our boxes are beautifully simple and made from recycled materials so you can feel good about treating yourself.
