There’s no question the recent past has culminated in an age of anxiety. We are slaves to our jobs, environment, and the individual factors in our lives contributing to stress. It’s time to reclaim the space we need in our lives to think, relax, recharge, and create positive energy and wellness. The spacious life starts from the inside out. It encompasses the mind, body, and soul.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to living a spacious life, but here are some ways to start the journey.
Sometimes you just need to breathe. Meditation offers you the ability to be fully present. Let go of the past, don’t focus on the future, but just breathe and be here now. With practice, you can give yourself space via meditation no matter where you are or how crowded the situation.
Living a spacious life is more than decluttering your mind. You must clean out your physical surroundings to free yourself of stuff you no longer need. The act of decluttering allows you to think about what you should keep – and why –and what needs recycling or rehoming.
You don’t need to master the art of feng shui to discover the soundness of its basic principles. Keep your home neat, clean, and orderly, and incorporate vital energy such as green plants into the design. When you declutter, energy can flow freely, bestowing its benefits.
Connect with Nature
No matter where you live, there are ways to connect with nature and ground yourself. A simple walk in the park, growing a garden, or feeding the birds can help you re-establish those basic connections.
Think of new ways to learn about and celebrate those connections. For instance, there’s a reason backyard chickens have made a comeback. Not only are they a source of food, but you can compost the manure and use it to fertilize your garden. Just watching the chickens in action provides insight into bird dynamics. A spacious life is also a simple life.
Perhaps you enjoy hiking or cycling, but another activity connects you with nature and history in a profound way. That is horseback riding, where you can enjoy the outdoors while communicating telepathically with an equine –once you learn to ride, of course. Along with exercise, it is a spiritual experience known to many before the invention of the internal combustion engine roughly 120 years ago. The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a human.
The truly adventurous may consider beekeeping. Sustainability is key, and bees are a necessary but threatened part of sustaining life on this planet. Some stinging is inevitable, but that is also a good metaphor for a spacious life.
Prioritize Those You Love
Living a spacious life means prioritizing those you care about. Family, friends, pets … your life should never prove so busy that you lack quality time with those who mean the most. The bottom line is time is all we have, so do not waste it on less important matters.
Purify your diet as much as possible. That means avoiding processed or junk foods and consuming natural foods free of pesticides, additives, and dyes. Keep alcohol consumption light. A little can relax you. No need to mention the effects of excessive consumption, except that it interferes with the spacious life you seek.
