The Art of Slow Living and Tapping Into Nature’s Rhythms with Jaime Fenwick and D'Arcy Benincosa on The Play It Brave Podcast

Have you ever craved time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Maybe you’re looking for ways to connect in deeper ways with your family or your creativity… This conversation with my friend Jaime Fenwick is filled with endless ideas of how you can tap into the art of slow living, whether it be a total lifestyle change or just a few small tweaks to your everyday habits. It’s time to step back and THRIVE in our everyday lives. Tune in to be inspired!

About Jaime:

Jaime Fenwick is a professional photographer and the founder of Bringing Inspiration Home, a business designed to help women thrive by tapping into their creative gifts through walking retreats, creative coaching, and photography. Jaime is based in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband and 3 children and is passionate about beauty, adventure, and finding rhythms that slow life down. Check out her Instagram and Website for updates on their family’s adventures, recent blog posts, and opportunities to tap into your creativity.

Getting into a Natural Rhythm:

  • Avoid turning on indoor lights and let the daylight flow in. Wake and go to bed with the sunrise and sunset. This allows your body to get into a circadian rhythm by tapping into your internal clock.
  • Science says that when you take in a vast view your body will naturally release stress. Be intentional about taking in a view more often.

The Positive Effects of Walking:

  • For someone who can’t just sit and BE, walking is another way of being intentional about your thoughts while doing nothing else.
  • Walking is an escape from always trying to be efficient and producing something.
  • The act of walking, whether it be outside or on a treadmill, has great effects on our creativity.

Turning Away from Technology:

  • Use a real candle or a red light before bed to balance out the blue light you’re taking in a lot of the day.
  • When it comes to using devices within your family, it’s important to not only enforce “rules” for your kids surrounding the time on electronic devices, but also have it as a principle for yourself and model that behavior.
  • When not on your devices tap into your creativity in other ways, whether it be through conversation, painting, walks, etc.
  • Boredom is okay. It’s just a form of releasing the need to be DOING something all the time and it allows you to tap into your creativity and imagination.
  • Take apps off your phone so that you can’t just mindlessly scroll or always be checking notifications.
  • Replace phone apps with the analog version: calendars, timers, clocks, watches, record players or radios, atlas books, encyclopedias, etc.
