Throughout the Slow Living Collaboration Danielle and I have always had a tough job choosing a selection to share on our blogs, but this month the task was even harder as we had to pick just six images to win a beautiful gift box from MOA. Before I reveal the six images we have chosen, I just wanted to say thank you to all who entered. It really is a pleasure to look through all your wonderfully wholehearted and slow moments, and get a glimpse into your lives.

The #slowliving_explore gallery is full of inspiring slow living moments and you can catch up on what everyone has been sharing here.

Below are the six winners. To me these six images represent different aspects of how we can explore in a slow and mindful way.

The fog in this picture really highlights how exploring can be stepping into the unknown…

The following two images capture the freedom that comes from having nowhere else to be. Children are great at exploring their surroundings (and bodies) through movement and by really getting close to nature….

Here Jessica has captured how you can explore creativity in a slow way by playing with the natural objects found whilst out exploring…

I love that the following two photos capture the motion of exploring. There is a particular way people inhale when they are confronted with a beautiful landscape and are surrounded by nature, and these two images represent that for me…

If all the winners could email me at geoffreyandgrace@gmail.com I’ll be able to arrange for the prizes to be sent.

Do pop over to Danielle’s blog Hippie In Disguise to read why she loved these six photos too.

After a year of having a different focus each month Danielle and I thought it was time for a change, and we wanted to simplify the project also.

Today we want to introduce you to the new slow living hashtag… #slowlivingforlife

We have both loved the project so much and want to continue to be inspired, and inspire others to slow down and find more wholehearted moments. We will both continue to highlight some favourites from the gallery as it grows, on our blog and on Instagram.

Look forward to seeing your #slowlivingforlife moments.

Don’t forget to follow the beautiful Pinterest board Slow Living Moments, which is a collection of all your wonderful photos over the last year.
