Most of us will never live a life so remote and basic. But we can still benefit from knowing that there are people out there doing it. How?
In your own daily life, you can start your own little veggie patch or even grow an herb garden in your kitchen. In no time you will be feeling the excitement of watching your crop grow and knowing that you did it all yourself! It’s not that hard. You can go to your local garden center and usually find starter plants already growing.
If you are really interested in actually living on a farm, you can become a wwoofer – World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (www.wwoof.org), and spend a vacation working on a farm somewhere in the world for 2 weeks as part of a work exchange program. This a great opportunity to understand more about where your food actually comes from and to gain a deeper appreciation for the work involved in having an actual farm.As much as you can, try to buy local and/or organic foods. It may seem like more money initially, but the long-term investment into your health is priceless. Remember, if you don’t spend your money on your food you will spend it on a doctor. You deserve the very best, so start eating better foods today.
We can all benefit from slowing down a little in life, even designating one night per week as ‘family night,’ where everyone stays at home and spends time interacting with each other. Playing cards or board games is a great way to spend time together.
You may not be waking up at sunrise to milk the goats ever, but you can start living a more natural life and even you can feel rewarded from the simple things in life.
