The Seasons of Work and Life
It’s easy to find yourself agreeing with the sentiment of working seasonally, but actually knowing what it looks like in reality can be quite overwhelming. Where do you start? Our approach is to be guided by the Wheel of the Year, an ancient calendar guided by the transition of the sun throughout the seasons.
Working Alongside Nature
Work-life balance. In our world of pressing deadlines, six figure income goals and round-the-clock connection, these three little words are everywhere. Together they form a phrase that has come to represent the nirvana of the career ladder: a legendary state of being in which all of life’s commitments fall neatly into place; a perfect equilibrium between personal and professional demands. The attainment of this level of harmony is widely acknowledged as the mark of someone who’s Got It Together and, consequently, the question of how to find it has become one of the most commonly asked of our time…but we think it’s all a myth.
There’s a lot of hype at the moment around the concept of ‘slow living’ and how that manifests in our day-to-day lives. Making time to enjoy a cup of coffee. Prioritising the journey over the destination. Opting for simplicity. Slow living looks different for everyone, but what seems to resonate with many people, is the desire to disconnect with technology, and reconnect with the natural world. It’s no surprise, then, that the ‘seasonal living’ movement is also experiencing a surge in popularity.
For Maddy and I, living both slowly and seasonally is the backbone of everything we do, so it was only natural we transitioned this lifestyle to our businesses when we made the leap to self-employment.
