It’s hard to slow down in a world where sayings like, ‘money doesn’t sleep,’ ‘hustle 24/7,’ and ‘sleep when I’m dead’ are the norm. Today’s ‘Life’s Not That Serious’ episode focuses on fighting against the ‘hustle everyday’ society. We validate stress and call it working hard. But what’s the toll of this ‘hustle’? Life’s not that serious that we need to overload ourselves with an ever increasing to-do list and growing self expectations. Today we’ll get into why I think this ‘get busy’ society isn’t worth subscribing to and what we can do to combat it even if your life is about as malleable as a brick wall.

Past LNTS episodes:

How to handle a big life change– one of the most popular episodes ever

You don’t owe anyone– how you don’t owe anyone an interaction, a concept especially valid for vegans or people living a ‘different’ lifestyle where others have a lot of questions

Life’s not that serious– an explanation on the concept of LNTS and answering your Q’s on the motto

DIY Laundry Detergent– I’ve been using this recipe, a tweak on my grandma’s recipe, for quite a few years now. It costs pennies per load and is virtually zero waste.

Fightmaster Yoga– These videos are great for an at home yoga practice and I really appreciate the quote Lesley puts at the end of each video.

Insight Timer– This meditation timer is home to ‘Sarah Blondin,’ whom I absolutely adore. Her guided mediations are more like positive, thought provoking pep talks. I HIGHLY suggest listening to one, the ‘Making Life Sacred‘ one is epically great.
