“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively, unless you can choose a challenge instead of a competence.” — Eleanor Roosevelt
Hello my lovelies, and a warm welcome!
I’m so excited you’re here.
The Tin Life is about holistic living for curious minds.
It’s about being good to our bodies and being green with our homes. It’s being creative from that part of us that is innately creative, even if we’ve covered it up over the years. It’s about living consciously and graciously, expansively and boldly. It’s about relationships and food – and being radically honest about both. It’s really about all the things I wish I was taught in school but had to learn – sometimes the hard way – as an adult.
I’ve been an intensive student of these topics for a long time. And I’m still insatiably curious. I always want to know more. So this is a space to dig deeper, examine how and why we do what we do, and ask some sage people about their experiences too.
This is a place without judgment or shaming. It’s about starting where you are. The ethos here is to offer humble gifts so you can be the best you. This is optimisation but in a thoughtful, organic way, and not so much about life hacks and short cuts.
The idea is to simplify as much as we can – how we eat, sleep, live, work, relate and more. Instead of adding more layers and noise, it’s about removing the excess and the complex (nature is a great teacher). When we take care of these core aspects, we can freely invest our energies on our creativity and service to others. This just works better for the world.
This is an experiment and adventure. I hope you will join me. Let’s live well!
“The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple, and love without measure.” — Tibetan Proverb
