Off-Grid Lifestyle in the City [Infographic] — ecogreenlove

Do you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the stresses of living an inner-city life? To help, Insulation Express have uncovered how to get the ‘off-grid’ lifestyle whilst living in a city.

4 Simple Steps to Switching to an ‘Off-grid Lifestyle’

  1. Instead of relying on electricity, install solar panels. With government grants and incentives, the installation fee can also be minimal and will cut down your utility bills.
  2. Switch your gas system to a wood-burning stove. This will reduce particle emissions by 90%.
  3. Remove your broadband and instead rely on the free Wi-Fi available in coffee shops and public places. We’re so used to being “connected” everyday but by switching off sometimes, this allows you to be more mindful of your surroundings.
  4. Consider water-saving techniques such as shorter showers and ordering a free water-saving kit from your local water authority. This gives back to the environment and is a cost-cutting technique.

Going ‘Off-Grid’ Helps Maintain Your Mental Health:

  • Reduces your social isolation
  • Improves your physical and mental health
  • Boosts your self-esteem and confidence
  • Increases your resilience
  • Improves your sleeping pattern
  • Reduces anxiety
