Approximately 10% of people suffer with dyslexia and about 5-10% from dyspraxia. There is no single type of either dyslexia or dyspraxia - but groups of characteristics that often overlap. It is often the case that both dyslexia and dyspraxia affect the same person.
The great news about simple living is it is just that- more simple for us! This means we don’t need to buy extra things and we don’t need to spend money changing our lifestyle or adapting our homes. We can live a more straightforward life right where we are and with what we have right now and that is a lovely thought! Just as self-care isn’t the self-care industry, slow living doesn’t need to be expensive either.
The very heart of the ethos is to let go of extra habits that take our time and very often our money for little to no benefit. In recent years, there has been (rather ironically) a consumerist approach to living more simply because when companies see a lifestyle gaining momentum, they will work out how to profit from it. For example take home cooking. There has been a lovely shift towards eating healthier, using less ready meals and having more whole foods. This change has also been accompanied by a multitude of extra gadgets- juicers, blenders, air fryers, dehydrators, slow cookers, rice cookers, spiralisers, and the list goes on. In the past when people lived from their own gardens more and ate local, fresh produce, they did not need all of these appliances, so what is it that makes us feel we need to?
