As you may have noticed from the blog menu, I have changed the article tags around. This is usually the type of online tidying I look into during the holiday season, but I have decided to look into it early this year. This was also the occasion to look into what type of posts I'd like to write from now on. Here is what you will find on The Nife en l'Air...
SimplicitySimplicity has always been the main topic of the Nife. From wardrobe editing to minimalism, questions around consumerism and materialism, this is what I enjoy sharing the most with you. Under this tag, you'll find articles about:
- Editing and simplifying items
- Slow life and reclaiming time for yourself
- Little joys and ordinary pleasures of life
- Questions around consumerism, material items and alternatives to all this
- "Happy frugality", zero waste and such
HealthI have decided to create a tag around all things physical health. I already wrote articles about this in the past, but as I focus on improving my own health, I'd love to share my progress and learnings with you. Under this tag, you'll find articles about:
- Physical health in general
- Sports and other physical activities
- Body care
- All things food - nutrition, recipes...
MindThis is the best word I have found for all the articles around mindset, psychology, life goals, brain biases, perception, habits, needs, but also happiness, mental and spiritual well-being and finding meaning in life. Under this tag, you'll find articles about:
- Mindfulness, meditation and such
- Psychology in general, positive psychology in particular
- Thoughts around philosophical ideas of happiness, meaning and what makes life worth living
- Brain biases, how the mind works, building habits...
Level UpLevel Up articles are, as they always were, about tips, tricks, experiments and mini-challenges to help out with life growth in various areas (physical, spiritual, material, creative...) Some general articles like resolutions will only be labelled "Level Up", others may also join one of the other tags.
MusingsThis tag refers to all other articles, who don't belong to any of the tags above. The Food for Thought articles are in there because they cover several topics at once. There are also cultural finds and discoveries I'd like to share, blog and personal life updates like this very article, etc.
What's next for the Nife?Those of you who have been following me for a while may have noticed that I have been less active these past months. This is probably linked to picking up on my fiction writing projects more seriously, and developing other writing and contribution projects in French at the moment.
I enjoy writing for the Nife very much though, and I'd like to keep a posting schedule of once to twice a week when I can, mainly on the three main topics above: simplicity, health and mind. I think sharing is an important part of growth, and it makes me happy when some of you send me comments or e-mails to share what you think about the Nife and how it affects your own growth.
For those of you who speak French, I still blog in French at La Nife en l'Air, mostly about cultural reviews and my fiction projects, but I do post some articles about simplicty and growth in French as well.
I hope you enjoy reading this little blog as much as I enjoy keeping it open. It's been over four years already, and when I look at the archives, it's incredible how much one can change in such a short time. I hope all is well for your own projects and life changes as well!
