Whether we like to admit it or not, the fast-paced and modern lifestyle has made it a bit difficult for us to find happiness. The hectic schedules of our everyday life have left us all feeling exhausted. Even outside work, we find ourselves struggling to keep up with our household duties. As a result, we’ve become more susceptible to burnout, which could, in turn, seriously affect our health. We’re all compelled to overachieve, and while giving our best effort isn’t bad, sometimes, we forget to take a break in our pursuit of what we think is best. Reconnect with yourself and find your Zen by trying out these different lifestyle trends from around the globe.
Find Zen right in the comfort of your own home with kanso. Called the Japanese equivalent of feng shui, kanso is a minimalist approach not only to interior design but also to life.

To find more peace, kanso encourages us to free more space in the room by de-cluttering it of unnecessary objects. Keep only what’s necessary — this way, energy will flow more freely, giving your mind and soul clarity so that you can appreciate the beauty of your life.
