Slow down. My friends and family will smile when I even mutter these words, as I am a busy person and always try to fit as much as I can into a day. I can even hear my mum, telling me to ‘just slow down, you do too much’ and rolling her eyes. So with this in mind, I decided the mantra for this year ahead should be to take life easier.

‘Taking it easier’ can come in many different forms and can be employed in all areas of our lives, whether it’s a wellness routine or rediscovering the ease of investing in wardrobe basics that will take the stress out of getting dressed in the morning. Simply allowing ourselves more lingering breakfasts (see below) or harnessing the power of the sun (when it comes out) with a restorative few minutes outside. Maybe it could be refreshing your home by buying one small thing that transforms a room or giving your beauty routine a spa-vibe now and again.

So, with the intention to practice what I preach, I wish you all a calm and content 2024.

How I am slowing down right now

Reading
Reading a book is just one of the ways of creating a pleasant space for yourself. Right now, I can’t put down This One Wild and Precious Life by my namesake Sarah Wilson. I used to work with her years ago in Sydney when she was the editor of Cosmopolitan magazine. Her latest book is a spiritual guidebook if you like that reveals the truth of what really matters and is her journey through the massive complexities of climate change, the pandemic, racial inequalities, AI advances, and our disconnection from what matters. She hikes around the world for three years to find a path to it all and emerges with a blueprint for living a wilder, more connected life, and one that might just save our precious life on this planet.

Eating
I love breakfast, but I always need to allow myself time to linger over it lately. One of my favourite recipes, by one of my favourite Australian chefs, Bill Granger, who sadly passed away recently and was known as the ‘breakfast king’ was his Ricotta Hotcakes with honeycomb butter. They are legendary and when I do take the time, they are always what I turn to.

Watching
Something I have been watching lately that isn’t quite a documentary, but I find just as relaxing, is Martijn Doolaard. This Dutch photographer, filmmaker, and travel writer has released 83 videos (and counting) documenting his restoration of a remote alpine cabin in the Italian Alps. There meditative pace is bizarrely addictive and allows you to wander a bit and reflect while watching. Try it and see.
