"It's a minimalist Monday edition of optimal. Living daily episode. Eleven ninety three experiences not things by Allie. Cornish with ever thrived dot org, and I'm just a Molly happy Monday. Welcome back to optimal living daily or the O L D podcast where I read to you from some of the best blogs, I can find and get permission from mostly covering personal development and minimalism on this show. We cover a bunch of other topics in the optimal living daily podcast network. Which includes four other shows definitely subscribe to those if you like this one for now is get right to it and start. Optimizing your life. Experiences. Not things by Allie. Cornish of ever thrived dot org. My husband, Josh, and I greatly value vacationing together through shared appreciation for destinations different than the norm. We've grown closer to each other. We tested are limits and affirmed our partnership I- tackling and overcoming obstacles in places both familiar and strange as a result of planning for travel and sharing adventures off the beaten path we've also made a lot of amazing memories. Never once on her journeys. Did we purchase a souvenir? And every once have we regretted it in place of trinkets. We create memories that last much longer. In fact, we find so much happiness and importance in experiences that we rarely give each other traditional gifts as it turns out considerable research has been done in support of our conclusions. What follows is five reasons why it is important for personal and relational growth to invest in experiences. Not things number one experiences last longer in our memories than material items do in contrast memory. As even the bad ones become sweeter with time. These memories might fade. But the emotion and sentiment from the imprinted experience becomes a part of us. The result is a ripple effect. The experience expands are alive. Build on who we are thereby making us more complete Deepal, our experiences only become part of us. They also connect us to others with whom we share experiences, we could try our hardest by material things even our mobile devices. Cannot become part of us. We are the sum of our experiences not are things number two since they enhance. Our character experiences are a better personal investment than things and hazing. Character is something seldom added to our daily to do list. But character is important to think about especially when you're building a personal relationship experiences. Help us to reinforce and model. Good character for one another experiences. Also, give us defining moments. Moments weakened forever. Characterize ourselves by making us into better. People. Number three experiences are worth the wait. We plan for travel months in advance as a result. We eagerly look forward to the moment of our departure much like school children do anticipating summer break the work. We do in planning from booking the tickets and the rental car to reserving, rooms tables or activities is totally worth it. Because it improves our experience, we might brave hours of airport waiting security checks and baggage hold ups, but overcoming all of that will make the trip even more satisfying number four. Conversely, I can't think of an instance where someone plans a trivial material purchase months in advance. Of course, we should carefully plan the series purchase of a home since things like homes will increase our quality of life of the long term. But would you really want to deal with the long-term hassle for short-term product Tikolo get grocery store? Checkout lines on holiday weekend or crowds in WalMart on black Friday waiting in line to buy things brings a lot of discomfort impatience. Ending Ziying personally. I would much rather wait in line for experiential purchases than a minor material purchase number five more often than not the material things we buy go out of style or become obsolete. When we purchase something new. We appreciate it. And may think we love it to us. The new thing is fresh and attractive and mood lifting endorphins flawed. Our minds to the act of purchasing, but we get used to the ones. New objects. We adapt and the things become boring in forgetful, think back to something you bought five or ten years ago. How many items that you bought during that time are still relevant to your life? Chances are that the items were forgotten went out of style or were replaced by newer model memories can also be forgotten or replaced. But the original still remain part of us. Like, I mentioned in point number one experiences shape us into who we are. And the ensuing memories. Become the building blocks of our individuality. If we invest in creating quality memories with one and. Other. We will have happiness for the long term. Sometimes our experiences don't seem so good at the time. Like when Josh and I got the camper stuck in a volcanic sand trap. While we were searching for a campsite in Iceland. We were really tired, Hungary and were starting to get short with each other. And then we got stuck in what we thought was an impossible situation. Miraculously we were not only able to trial and error our way out of that hole. But we also endured another hour of hunting for a camping spot in hindsight. We're able to recall that evening with pride we overcame several obstacles together and are better for it. We saw we both handled the stressful situation in the result made us even more connected as a couple by increasing the respect we have for one. Another conquering tricky situations. Paves the way for potential opportunities to become better people and becoming better people. His the best gift of all Josh. And I are definitely not the first to discover the benefits of seeking unique opportunities to make memories together. What we have discovered are the teenage -able benef-. Bits of seeking out experiences instead of material things. You just listen to the post titled experiences not things by Allie. Cornish with ever thrive dot org. Definitely check out her site.

"This is optimal. Living daily episode. Seven fifty nine take the slow way by Alec orange of ever thrive dot org. And I'm just a molecule personal narrator where I get permission from the authors of the best blogs, I can find on personal development, minimalism productivity anything that. I think will help you live a more meaningful life, and then I simply read their content to you for free alley created ever thrive as a response to the increasing pace materialism and detachment of today's society perfect fit for this show. So without further ado, let's get right to it and start. Optimizing your life. Take the slow way by Allie. Cornish of ever thrive dot org. In our hectic lives. We seem to move very quickly. We're constantly bombarded with information tasks and noise, if you're like me most days, I strive to get as much done as possible before I realize it mornings turned into evenings. My alarm clock seem to wake me up right after my head is the pillow and during the night by often experiencing Zayed dreams were after each some kind of goal, and I simply cannot accomplish it all these results are pursuing what I like to call a Carpi diem sort of life retro accomplished so many things by living in the moment. Mantra for many however, seizing the day or rather capturing the day only helps us to conquer subdue in even kill our days. Instead of actually living them living in the moment. Offers nothing to alleviate stress, over-stimulation and noise from our lives. Sometimes it's necessary to take a break from living in the moment. Sometimes it's necessary to take the slow way three years ago. My husband took me on a date to an event called tour de fat. New Belgium brewery's annual traveling festival that showcases Zini entertainment game show, parodies, an interactive fashion showdown and a car for bike. Swap will make this festival different from other street festivals is not only as a collective nature. But also the fact that at its core lies the idea of taking the slow way this concept is highlighted by new Belgium's iconic logo, a simple beach cruiser bicycle a bike, MS very thing. There are so many types of bicycles new Belgium's emblematic choice of a beach cruiser instead of a road. Bike mountain bike Citi bike recumbent bike at cetera. It penalizes the idea of taking it slow, which is one of new Belgium's core values the cruiser bike insignia is a call for beer lovers to choose quality over quantity and supports the idea of drinking craft beer slowly in order to appreciate the taste and savor the experience in this way. New Belgium's aborts the idea of living a simple life at a slower pace. I love how new Belgium. The concept of slowing down and connected to something as simple and familiar as enjoying a beer disconnection makes it easy to visualize an apply taking the slow way to choose as we make in our daily lives. Huge improvements can be made to our mental and physical wellbeing. If we just slow down by slowing down we allow ourselves time to think about how we are living life slowing down gives a space to evaluate our choices and make new goals and as a happy consequence slowing down while help us make our fleeting time on earth as meaningful as possible here. Six small changes, we can make to take the slow way and to reconnect with ourselves manned. Our surroundings number one walk or ride a bike to work instead of taking a car seems like a fairly common idea. But my head to include it biking disconnects us from the quick ADP commute. And instead connects us to our surroundings the environment, and our mental and physical health even choosing public transportation over driving to work can be beneficial as. It takes us out of our protective bubbles and challenges us with the experience of self orientation and punctuality public transit. Also gives us the opportunity to see ourselves as social creatures and part of a bigger system. If biking or public transport are out of the question try to fit in a walk or a bike ride on the weekend. We'll give you a valuable change of pace and allow your mind break from the responsibilities of life number two traveled differently. Is it a visiting three new cities and five days? Choose to visit only one city his way, he can gradually immerse yourself into the culture and experience the nuances of daily life. This idea of lengthen cultural merging has been dubbed slow travel. The method suggests we linger in one place to really get the feel for it. And take the time to learn the rhymes of local life without rushing from one tourist destination to the next you can't even spend time doing nothing to allow for restful contemplation of the travel experience. Slow travel house us to foster stronger connection to the place where. Visiting and allows us a nice break from our fast paced daily life, number three cook from scratch instead of dining out, grabbing takeout or reheating something from the freezer or for mcken, try creating something original for dinner, not only will the meal, be healthier and free from preservatives and excess amounts of sodium. But it will also leave you more satisfied since two meal was a product of your own efforts. Allowing yourself to accept the challenge of cooking something from scratch will help you grow. As a chef will give you power over your meal choices and will hone your ability to live life at a slower pace. Number four. Great yourself permission to breathe consciously taking one deep breath helps us to pause reflect and refocus our perceptions and inevitably helps us to slow down conscious. Breathing can help us approaching conquered things like anxiety and stress. Henrik Edberg in his article the power of breathing suggest taking two minutes away from stressful situations to slow down. And focus on the breath. I found that two minutes is more than enough to find space when our hectic world expand and devour us number five allow for silence. Give yourself some quiet time to think and to rest. Our daily lives are full of noise. Most of which we are unaware when we make time for silence, we are helping our nervous systems restore themselves. Silence. Assists in sustaining energy to complete mental and physical tasks in silence conditions. Our minds to be more adaptive responsive to the complex environments in which so many of us now live work and lead silence for most mindfulness and reflection. Both of which have been linked to positive mental health changes and increased quality of life. And number six disconnect from our devices today time spent in the digital world seems to be a necessity. But oftentimes we confuse necessary.
