Project Me 16/101 – Loving and Leaving the Good Life

Helen Nearing in Loving and Leaving the Good Life gives these suggestions for nurturing yourself so you live less stressfully. I read this earlier today and thought what a lovely, gentle way to live…..

Do the best you can, whatever arises
Be at peace with yourself
Find a job you enjoy
Live in simple conditions; housing, food, clothing – get rid of clutter
Contact nature every day; feel the earth under your feet
Take physical exercise through hard work; through gardening or walking
Don’t worry; live one day at a time
Share something every day with someone else; if you live alone, write someone, give something away, help someone else somehow
Take time to wonder at life and the world; see some humour in life where you can
Choose the one life in all things
Be kind to the creatures
