Binge Some Doc’s

Once in a while, you just need a break.  I get it, it happens to the best of us. There is nothing wrong with kicking back on a lazy day, making a hot cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, grabbing a throw blanket and zoning out once in a while.  If today is one of though days, then here is a selection of documentaries that I recommend..

Finding Hygge – This documentary came out in 2018, and is unique in that it explores both the positive and negative sides of hygge.  It is hardly a biased view of the Danish lifestyle term. You can watch a trailer for the film HERE on Youtube.

Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things – This is often the default reference for all minimalists, and it also played a large part in introducing myself to the minimalism lifestyle.  The documentary came out in 2015 and was put together by Matt D’Avella and can be found on Netflix. There is a short trailer to watch HERE if your interested.

Expedition Happiness – This documentary follows a couple and their dog around in their skoolie conversion bus as they take off for a minimal, nomadic adventure. There is a trailer HERE and this documentary can also be found on Netflix.

No Impact Man – Some would say that zero waste is a bit of an extreme lifestyle.  This documentary follows a husband, wife and their 2 year old daughter attempt to live a zero waste lifestyle for an entire year. The trailer is HERE

**Bonus Pick** Pedal the World – This documentary features the same Felix Starck from the Expedition Happiness doc.  It follows him as he bike packs for an entire year in Europe. He travels 18,000 kilometers across 22 countries. In case you don’t know bike packing is traveling and camping with only a loaded up bicycle.  The trailer is HERE

There are a multitude of documentaries and shows that I could recommend in addition to these so be sure to subscribe to this blog so that you don’t miss them.

    This is such a brilliant list. Although we got rid of the TV two years ago, I occasionally watch educational documentary or two. I’ve seen every single one on your list and can highly recommend them too. Minimalist was an eye opener and game changer for us, after watching it, we slowely started changing our every day habits. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 😀 Aiva

        My husband resisted at first. So, I patiently waited for the thought to sink in and after a while, just before we left Dublin and moved to Ireland’s West Coast for a better life/work balance, it was a logical step. Two years in, it’s the best decision we ever made.
