Throw away the blackberry's, and iphones for old fashioned living. People are escaping from this era of being obsessed with checking facebook, and being tied to their phone, that many people are just throwing it all away for a simple lifestyle. Many people are slowly detaching themselves from this obsession of technology ruling their lives, by not buying every gadget that comes out on the market. Free yourself from all the new toys, and really start enjoying life, and the people around you. You can be connected to the grid, without being controlled by it.
People are joining a major trend of having a technology fast. What is that? Turning off the tv, computer, electronics for several weeks, to a month. This allows them to re-connect with family, play a game of cards, and dust off an actual book! Our pets are neglected, our children are deprived of love, and spouses no longer spend time together. We need a change. Too many of us let our work rule our lives at home, in what is supposed to be our family time. Do we have to have the phone strapped to our hip?
Being surrounded by hand-crafted, rustic furnishings can remind a person of simpler times, which can be an escape in itself. Today the average person is beyond stressed out on a daily basis. We drink several cups of coffee in the morning to get going, and then some "put to sleep" tea in the evening, when in fact, we are whipping a tired horse. Over time, if a person is constantly in a continual state of panic, it catches up to them resulting in health problems. Even the children are stressed out these days, as they are stretched to their limits with trying to perform well in school, and sports that the home can be one of the only places of refuge.
Many people who are blessed enough to buy a cabin away from the city life, have a chance to "reset" once a week. You don't have to buy an extra property to make that happen. Aged furniture can bring about a warmth and comfort to your home and family, even the types of fabrics can speak volumes when it comes to comfort. Antique furniture often has dents, scratches and general wear and tear from years of use. Antiques allow you to use the furniture, because added patina and dents just add to charm. Join us as we discover our primitive roots together and build a life that is grounded in natural elements.
