How to Lead a More Holistic Lifestyle on a Budget

How to Lead a More Holistic Lifestyle on a Budget1

If you are new to a holistic lifestyle, chances are you’ve seen vlogs and social media posts about it. A holistic lifestyle isn’t a matter of affluence and privileges. It’s also far from how it’s aesthetically portrayed on social media. The very term implies a healthier lifestyle that consists of nutritional choices you make for yourself on a daily basis. And the good news is that living holistically doesn’t cost a fortune! The point is to simplify your lifestyle but also make it more beneficial for yourself. You’ll do so by changing how you treat your body, mind, and life. So, let’s dive into the basic steps of a holistic lifestyle on a budget. 

Make healthy eating choices

It won’t hurt to enjoy a slice of pizza with your favorite cheeseburger when daily chores and stress can get the best of you. However, fast and processed foods shouldn’t be on your menu almost every day. If you have a habit of eating out and snacking on sugary foods, take a step back to re-examine your food choices. Does your fridge lack veggies? Do you often feel down because of the lack of vitamins and minerals? Let a food overhaul be the first step towards your holistic lifestyle on a budget.

The first step towards your holistic lifestyle on a budget is a healthier menu.

One of the great things about entering a holistic lifestyle is an improved relationship with food. Once you start to see it as fuel and joy combined, you’ll get more interested in an array of (simple) recipes. Moreover, it comes in handy to upgrade your cooking skills and diversify your food choices. Here are some simple rules to follow:

  • Eat more veggies to stay satiated for more extended periods.
  • Swap chocolate bars for chia pudding or your favorite fruits.
  • Occasionally treat yourself with comfort food and desserts.  
  • Add holistic supplements to your kitchen cabinet.
  • Learn how to meal prep for the next day. Combine foods rich in protein, fiber, healthy fats, and complex carbs.
  • Spend more time cooking than eating out.

Dedicate more time to skincare

Nurturing your outside is just essential as nurturing it from the inside. Maybe it’s time to change your skincare products and find those that fit your skin type. It’s possible to find reasonably priced skincare products with clean ingredients. The same goes for body care. 

Find a physical activity you would enjoy

There’s nothing that’ll relieve you of stress instantly than physical activity. If you’re already pretty active – keep going! On the other hand, a holistic lifestyle is your way out of the work-home loop if you’re used to a sedentary lifestyle. Once you get active, you’ll notice an increase in your energy. Furthermore, you’ll start to listen to your body and move it daily. You don’t have to be into sports and fitness all the way. If the gym, for example, isn’t your cup of tea, try climbing, hiking, dancing, etc. Even regular long walks can be beneficial to your well-being. 

Go on a digital detox

Doom scrolling not only steals your time but also clutter your mind with a plethora of content. Plus, an overwhelming amount of information tire out your brain as it tries to process them all at once. People don’t realize this until they go offline for a few days. So, do yourself a favor and go offline for at least a day or the entire weekend. You’ll start appreciating the airplane mode on your phone.

Go offline from time to time. 

Take care of your mind 

Breathing and meditation techniques are proven ways to calm your mind and keep it in check. Since there are so many of them nowadays, it’s impossible to find the ones that don’t suit you. In addition, painting, knitting, gardening, and other creative activities can work wonders for your mental well-being. What also helps is monitoring the content you expose yourself to. That being said, try paying more attention to the conversation you’re having, the books you’re reading, and the news you’re looking into. Mental hygiene is as important as physical. 

Downsize to a smaller place

Relocation is also a perfect opportunity to start a holistic lifestyle. However, the question is: where to relocate? Following the current moving trends, it can be concluded that people tend to downsize more than ever before. Your life becomes much simpler when you have just enough space that doesn’t take too much effort to maintain. 

Make sure to have the right assistance on your long-distance moving journey. You’ll do so by researching top-rated moving companies that would cover all your relocation needs – from packing to storage. Refer to online databases with an array of professional movers to choose from. However, double-check if they’re registered, licensed, and available on your preferred dates. Make a list of all potential movers you’ll contact and interview about all moving-related matters. Last but not least, ensure the company you are considering provides a free moving quote. It’s an estimation of approximate moving costs you should expect if you hire them. 

Declutter your life 

Cluttered space influences your mind, energy, and a sense of comfort. This is why spending a weekend decluttering your home from top to bottom pays off. Begin with junk, then proceed to clothes, shoes, furniture, and miscellaneous items. Think about whom you could gift some of the items to. Also, look up charities and see if you could make a decent donation. As for the things that don’t hold any sentimental value anymore, list them online for sale. 

Holistic lifestyle means less clutter.

Before the rest of the items end up in a garbage bin, segregate recyclable items. Ensure your new, decluttered, holistic life begins with minimal waste left behind.

Wrap up

You’ve probably been told these tips multiple times. They’re simple yet inexpensive. Leading a holistic lifestyle on a budget brings positive results in all aspects of your life besides finances. However, the key is to remain consistent and make these basic principles of a holistic way of living a habit. With time, you’ll transform your lifestyle and live each day with more energy and enthusiasm.
