It’s Ok to let go of those who are no longer right for you

Its ok to let go

I don’t know where to start.. Maybe I’ll start with how and why I’ve decided to write this post – which will probably be a little bit personal. I was supposed to go hiking today. I’ve planned the route, booked the train tickets and all. But I woke up this morning with million thoughts rushing through my brain – thoughts from ‘what to eat for…

My Minimalism Journey: How it all started

For last 2.5 years, minimalism has been a huge part of my life. I see minimalism as a mindset. It encompasses emotions, relationships, friendships, commitments, work, basically everything.

Last Sunday, I sat down with my journal and a cup of coffee to write down my goals for next week. While I started scribbling a few things on the notepad, I started thinking about my minimalism journey, and how I came to love minimalism. Minimalism is a word that gets difficult to say, if you say it too many times – as it’s becoming…

How to start decluttering your mind, time and home

Decluttering your mind, time and home can be the biggest project you’ll ever undertake, and it’s important to intentionally choose where to start. Here’s my story + some tips and insights on how and where to start decluttering to get you started.

‘What do you collect?’ my colleague asked me the other day. ‘Nothing’ I replied. ‘Nothing? Come on, everyone collects something. Coins, travel magnets, something’. ‘I don’t, I really don’t collect anything. The idea of accumulating anything freaks me out. Because I’m a minimalist’ – I said. Later I thought about this chat and it made me smile. I don’t attach any emotional meaning to things.…

The art of being happily single

My Simple Adventures - Travel & Lifestyle Blog

Being single is the ultimate life skill to learn. It’s fair to say, after being single for nearly 4 years I have mastered the art of being happily single. ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ says to me (a very good looking) diving instructor who’s picking me up from my hotel at 9am in the morning. It’s +25 and sunny, we’re driving to a little secluded beach in…

Hiking and walking trails near London

Hiking and walking trails near London

One of my new year resolutions was to spend as much time as possible outdoors. I usually escape to Europe for weekend getaways- when I feel like I need some me-time with the nature. Spending a weekend in the Scottish Highlands last year made me realise how little of the UK I have explored – even though I’ve lived here for nearly 10 years now.…
