Life can feel as if we have to measure its meaning through indicators such as career success, romantic relationships, relaxing getaways, and other milestones. But how do we find significance in our everyday lives, doing mundane activities? How can our habitual routines empower us on a daily basis? This publication strives to find self-growth in our seemingly uneventful rituals which fuel us to love ourselves and equip us to evolve and prosper.
Mundane Matters is an editorial publication that immerses itself in the space of rituals that often go overlooked, and explores how they create a place of empowerment. Readers can receive an issue, paired with an object related to the ritual, and are invited to connect and participate in the ritual for themselves.
In the first issue of Mundane Matters, “Getting Dressed,” Cecelia S. shares her relationship with her body, both internally, through her self image, and externally, with her condition, polycystic ovary syndrome. She opens up about how wearing lingerie as the first piece of clothing when getting dressed prompts her to appreciate her body and find beauty in it, despite her struggles.
In the second issue, “People Watching,” Joanna C. speaks on her experience with arrival fallacy, the illusion that achieving success will lead to long-lasting happiness. She shares how people watching allows her to find self-grace and helps reassess her mindset and lifestyle.
