My message is simple you can’t have everything, you can’t have the high powered and high strung job and the peaceful quality of life at the same time. Life is about decisions and you have to chose. I’m here to urge you to chose happiness, peace and simplicity.
Many will tell you that you can keep your million miles an hour lifestyle, but by adding small changes you can sustain it, maybe you can. However I don’t want you to just cling on, I want you to thrive. Our planet is in crisis because we’re always wanting more. Our mental health is in crisis because, in order to sustain the lifestyle we think we want, we’re pushing ourselves harder and harder, then getting home and zombying out in front of a screen. Our social lives are in crisis because, in our technological efforts to be more connected, we’ve never been less so. And we’re facing an existential crisis.
Because we’re looking to programs or books that tell us we can have it all: uphold this fast paced lifestyle while keeping a happy, healthy mental and physical state, and maintain our 21st century consumer-centric expectations while also doing right by the planet. What we’re not being told so often is that life is about choices. And you can’t have it all. That to have happiness we have to give up other things, or at least make significant cut backs. And that, when we learn to truly love the small things, when the big things do come around, they’re a wonderful bonus.
Naturally Sassy is about those simple but wonderful moments, doing right by your body and the planet. Seasonal eating, creative recipes, home workouts and sustainable living. Good health isn’t one dimensional, it’s not only about what you eat, it’s what you think and what you do.
