It’s Time to Stop Living in Fast Forward - How a Teacup Tiny Cottage Could Help You Slow Down

May 17, 2022

Have you ever heard the song Technologic by Daft Punk?

Buy it, use it, break it, fix it, trash it, change it, mail, upgrade it

We live in a world that is evolving at a terrifying pace.

Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it, snap it, work it, quick erase it

What happens when we reach the inevitable crescendo of burnout? 

Write it, cut it, paste it, save it, load it, check it, quick rewrite it

Plug it, play it, burn it, rip it, drag it, drop it, zip, unzip it


  1. A Teacup Will Help You Cut Out the White Noise


You know all those hobbies, items, or friends you kind of like? Yeah, those things will not fit into your tiny cottage. But, this is why Teacups make perfect vacation units: they give you a license to only surround yourself with things that bring you joy. In fact, if you’re not familiar yet, you should know about the popular tiny house adage: only two things fit in a tiny cottage, what you need and what you love.

  1. A Teacup is a Home Away From Home.


There is a time and a place for hotels, but it’s nice to sleep in your bed when the goal is to truly recharge. That’s the beauty of a Teacup; everything in it belongs to you.

  1. A Teacup Will Encourage You to Get Outside


Tiny cottages are great, but they are also tiny! Most tiny cottage owners incorporate balance by spending more time outside. Why is it so hard to leave your regular-sized house and get out into nature? We have no idea. But this is a problem your Teacup will help you solve!


  1. A Teacup Will Help Your Operating System Run More Smoothly


Hear us out. You know how if you have too many programs running on your computer, it slows everything down? The same thing happens to us in regular-sized living spaces. We acquire things (like everyday objects that no longer serve us) or small problems (like a back door that doesn’t latch properly), and these things weigh us down. In bigger spaces, these system-lags are easy to ignore. We shove the non-functional items in a cabinet, for instance, or start coming and going through the front door.


But while those things might seem to solve the problem, those issues still gnaw away at our emotional bandwidth. Here’s the beautiful thing about a tiny cottage, though; you won’t be able to ignore issues that arise. And when you take care of them in a timely manner? Well, then clean energy and emotional bandwidth are yours for the taking!




Honestly, this is a list that could go on and on, but hopefully, we’ve made our point!

Do you know what really blows our minds here at Teacup? The fact that we get the same amount of time on this planet, whether we soak it in or rush through it in fast forward. But while the amount of time may not change, our experience of the time changes dramatically depending on how present we are. This is why it’s so important to live at a speed that allows us to make conscious choices. 


Slowing down your life is not a quick switch you flip, but rather an intentional decision that’s made in stages. The good news is that you don’t have to change your life alone. Our team at Teacup is dedicated to being with you every step of the way as you take life back into your own hands.
