Yoga and minimalism :: How to bring yoga into your minimalistic life Once I had found minimalism, I could not turn back. Living in a way that you reduced your clutter, made things simple. You start to bring minimalism into other things in your life. What you choose to eat, drink or even wear. Simplicity comes hand in hand with calmness. There are over 100 different postures of yoga that one can do, this can be very overwhelming. Many of the postures take a very long time to achieve. Iv been doing yoga now for over 5…

The difference between Konmari method and minimalism -Hacking Parenthood

The difference between Konmari and Minimalism -Hacking Parenthood

I was first told about the konmari method of sorting out my house about a year ago. After reading the Konmari book 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying', I realised I really needed to sort my stuff out. I have lugged my things through 6th form, college and university. Once my daughter was born, I started to realise that I was just keeping things that I did not need and it was causing a huge amount of stress to my husband and I. Most of the items in my house was mine. I needed to do something…

You don’t need to take every toy on holiday -Hacking Parenthood

You don't need to take every toy on holiday. Your child will survive and even thrive when they don't have all those toys around them.

Alternatives to help save the planet -Hacking Parenthood

  Alternatives to help save the planet and the ocean Charity begins at home. What a profound message that I got wrong. I used to think that that meant charity begins and stays at home. I was wrong. The only way you can share and be kind to other people is if you practice it in your own home. This message is about beginning with yourself and spreading that out to the world. Ever since becoming vegan and practising minimalism and gentle parenting, I have learnt so much about how I live my life and how…

I wore one outfit for my whole holiday in Brighton. -Hacking Parenthood

I wore one outfit for my whole holiday in Brighton. Technically, there was one day which I wore shorts instead of my jeans as my jeans needed to dry after being washed. Got some tips at the end of this post if you want to start your journey to the perfect outfit. When I was a child, I would go visit my dad every other weekend. I needed to pack all my clothes that I needed for the weekend. I would pack almost all my clothes I had. Always too scared to leave something that…

Why I choose one favourite outfit for the season. -Hacking Parenthood

Why I choose one favourite outfit and wear that for the season. Simplicity should be brought into our daily lives. It should surround us. Complicated life breeds stress. I have started simplifying my wardrobe. I generally pick my favourite outfit and wear it every day. My winter wardrobe is very basic. One jacket, one jumper, one pair of shoes and about 6/7 tops, socks and underwear and 2 pairs of trousers. My summer wardrobe is similar, just adding one pair of sandals and one pair shorts for the hot days. The tops I have are…

How to let go of things you think you need. -Hacking Parenthood

How to let go of things you think you need. -Hacking Parenthood

I want to talk about how to let go of things you think you will need in the future. We all have this problem of wanting to keep certain things because you might need it. Why do we do this? As humans, we are psychologically inclined to attach to things. We see things as our own. It is very hard to part with items we believe are ours. In the case of items that we think we will use at a future date, this can be quite a struggle. Keeping that dress that you might fit into.…

People have forgotten how to share. -Hacking Parenthood

People have forgotten how to share -Hacking Parenthood

Adults have this thing about kids having to share. Whether it's a book at home or a toy in the playground. Kids have to share things all the time. It doesn't seem to matter whose it is. I don't actually know the real etiquette of sharing toys as I haven't bothered to find out. So that made me wonder about how adults share. How do they do it? Adults don't like to share. This is a problem for society. Ok, maybe they do share or want to share but as a society, sharing isn't really accepted anymore. People…
