Mindful Partnerships

Making lasting collaborations. Today is Ged and I’s anniversary so I thought what better time than now to write a post about mindful partnerships. Sustainability in Style isn’t a dating or romantic relationship advice site, so this post is all about mindful partnerships in stylish lives- not how to find love. However, I thought it might be nice to quickly say a huge thank you to Ged for being there for me. The photo above...

Mindful Media Consumption

 Being media savvy is a mindful must. In our day we are exposed to advertising from waking to sleep. Advertisements are on our phones, in our living rooms, and all over our streets. It’s hard to find a definitive statistic on the number of advertisements that we are exposed to (there are just so many channels and media consumption varies from consumer to consumer) but it’s estimated to be around 5000, to as high as 10,000...

A Mindful Night In

Plan a Mindful movie night. There really isn’t a better activity to pass the cooler months than getting together with your friends and having a movie night. For our Mindful In May theme I’ve picked three thought provoking watches that are totally different from one another. You can choose a very meditative and mindful night in, a savvy-on-trend look at minimalism, or a not-so-easy but very important look at how mindless...

Dressing Mindfully

The art of dressing mindfully. Getting dressed is something we do habitually. It’s not often that one thinks about every detail of their outfit unless there is a special occasion or event. Most of us (not all…but most) will have items we wear out of habit. These items are usually the ones we feel most comfortable with in a literal and/or emotional sense or the ones that made us smile from ear to ear. Every once and a while it’s good...

Mindful Shopping

Shopping on autopilot doesn’t make for meaningful purchases. Have you ever found yourself in the shopping centre car park- shopping in hand- only to wonder how the heck you got there? We are busy people and it’s pretty easy to shop on autopilot. We can find ourselves in situations where we can’t find our keys, can’t remember what happened on the weekend, or fail to remember that we bought new gym wear until it...

Exercises for Mindfulness

All muscles need exercise. Even those that exist all up there in our brains! As we have established in previous posts this month, mindfulness is all about bringing ourselves into the now. It can be easy in a world full of distractions to have our minds in every place but the present moment. Babies are prime examples of living in the now (loving the heck out of crib-mobiles and wondering where we go when we play peek-a-boo) because...

Move Mindfully

 Have you thought about how you get from A to B and back again? If Instagram teaches us anything it’s that stylish people generally move around a lot. They fly from place to place snapping the most beautiful and lust-worthy photos that make us green with travel envy. While adventures are fun, it’s important to keep in mind that every time we choose to change our geographical location we have the opportunity to select a...

Mindfulness Is The New Black

Mindfulness is more than a buzzword. Hands up who has heard the word ‘mindful’ thrown around their media channels? Yup… I see you there in front of your screen with your hand in the air (you can put it down now). Mindfulness is everywhere. A buzzword from the wellness industry, being mindful is actually so much more than just a trendy idea to throw around at your post-yoga-smoothie catch up. Mindfulness is a mindset not a slogan and...

Train your brain and change the world. It’s that time of year again!

It’s because May is the month for meditation, mindfulness and giving. Mindful in May is a one month, online meditation training program that teaches science based mindfulness meditation tools to...
