Share the Joy

We are big fans of sharing as a positive concept and sustainable option, so part of feeling good about ourselves includes sharing where we can. The Winter months can be especially difficult for people living on the streets and if you have appropriate clothing you no longer need or are part of a group that could arrange a collection of sleeping bags, hats, gloves or coats and boots they would be hugely appreciated by a large number of individuals or organisations working locally, nationally and internationally to alliveate suffering. We talk about this idea in more detail in our Throw It Tuesday’s pages of the Winning At Winter book.

 

Feeling cosy can come not just from our physical surroundings but also from an internal sense of Peace, this isn’t always an easy thing to achieve and I’ve been reading about a rise in Eco Anxiety lately. While that may be the topic of another, more specific, post – I would say that taking action is one of the ways to help you feel some sense of control over much larger problems than you can solve alone or quickly. By helping that one person by donating that one hat you ARE making that one life more manageable, of course there is more to be done and maybe even more that you can do but tackle one thing at a time. If you haven’t got any items to share, you may be able to give to a foodbank, share you time as part of a community lonliness project, share your knowledge at a local group or share an idea with a local politician…

 

Sharing is what makes our lives connect and through that connection we feel more purposeful, connection is a huge factor in mental wellbeing and during the Winter when we often stay indoors more it is an important part of our lives to pay attention to – more on this topic to come, can  you tell it’s one of my passion projects?! If you’d like to connect with people in our frugal living Facebook group you would be made very welcome, it’s a fun and friendly group with daily threads all around spending less but doing more x
