Downshifting Week Starts Tomorrow

Downshifting is about slowing down your pace, finding a better work/life balance, consequently embracing living with less and leading a simpler, greener and happier life!

The suggestions from the InterNational Downshifting Week team are relatively easy to adopt, yet can have great bearing on your everyday life and the way you spend your time and money.

‘Slowing down’ could mean anything from not doing that extra hour of overtime, because you want to get home and see the family.

Generally it refers to us tipping the favour of the work / life balance in favour of ‘life’. The consequence of this is that usually, you earn less money.

As a result, you become a little more thrifty and get clever with your money, making things last longer. You ditch lavish restaurant meals and cook a few from fresh using delicious seasonal, local ingredients instead.
