Throughout life’s everyday hustle and bustle, we’ve been conditioned to believe that being busy is a good thing. But when you’re constantly chasing the clock, a busy lifestyle can impact your health, increasing stress and anxiety.

Cue in slow living: a conscious approach that encourages a slower lifestyle for long-term improvement to your mindset and wellbeing. Through skincare products and self-care rituals that foster rest and recovery, embracing a slower lifestyle can be a solution to overcome daily stressors.

The meaning of slow living

The essence of slow living is being more intentional about your thoughts, decisions and choices.

Instead of constantly ticking things off your to-do list, slow living encourages you to enjoy life’s smaller pleasures by appreciating beauty in the everyday moments and cultivating a deeper connection to your mind, body and self.

In short, it’s about prioritising quality over quantity – shifting from autopilot mode to placing careful thought into everything we do.

How to live slow 

If you’re used to being a busy body, living slow feels strange at first. We recommend starting small, like incorporating a daily ritual with skincare products that protect, replenish and revitalise tired looking skin. Below are other ways to start living slow: 

  • Set boundaries by prioritising yourself: Before taking action, think about whether or not it serves your health. Start saying no to events, situations and commitments that may impact your self-care moments.
  • Practice wellness techniques: Doing massage techniques while completing your skincare ritual or creating a spa-like experience at home helps soothe your senses and bring peace to your mind. Embracing slow beauty can help you get ready for the day ahead or prepare for a restful sleep after a long day. 
  • Incorporate a daily mantra: If you’re overwhelmed or stressed, practising a daily mantra can help shift the focus back to yourself and what matters to you. It could be something simple like “I am strong” or “I can achieve this”. Say it out loud to yourself daily to bring forth calm and restore balance to your mind.

The benefits of slow living

When you slow down and prioritise self-care, you’ll notice long-term improvements to your overall physical, mental and emotional wellbeing:

  • Deeper connections: Not only will you build a deeper connection to yourself, but you’ll nurture the connections you have with loved ones by engaging in more meaningful conversations. You learn to become more present in your interactions.
  • A greater sense of gratitude: Slow living enables you to appreciate life’s everyday beauty, so you’ll be able to bask in the small everyday joys you normally wouldn’t notice when always on the go. From that grateful first sip of coffee in the morning to beautiful sunsets in Summer, having gratitude for simple pleasures gives way to a more optimistic outlook on life. 
  • Overall enhanced wellbeing: Reducing stress and incorporating tools into your daily life to manage anxiety gives space for balance and contentment in your life. The wellbeing benefits also show up on your skin.
