What does being carefree mean to you?

For some, it means finding a balance between their work and personal lives, while for others, it could mean living in the moment and not worrying about the past or future. It could even be something as simple as having a glass of your favourite whisky, like a triple distilled Auchentoshan single malt whisky at the end of the day to unwind and let your troubles slip away.

Believing that the key to happiness is enjoying a smooth and carefree life, alcohol brand Auchentoshan puts that perspective at the heart of everything they do

Hailing all the way from the lowland region of Scotland, Auchentoshan has been around for almost 200 years. Their distillery has stood in the same location in the outskirts of vibrant Glasgow since 1823.

Rooted in their signature triple distillation method for extra smoothness, you can expect only the smoothest vibes from their easy-to-drink whisky varieties. More details at the end of the story!

But first, let’s delve into how to go about starting to live a carefree life amidst our busy and hectic daily lives:

1. Appreciate the little things in your everyday life

This means focusing on those small moments as you go about your day-to-day activities, from listening to the birds chirp during your morning walk, to enjoying the cool evening breeze while sipping on a smooth glass of cocktail cobbler with a hint of Auchentoshan.

Living a carefree life isn’t about living life without care and doing whatever you want. It’s about living in the moment and practising daily gratitude. By doing all these things, you’ll find that there’s more meaning in everything you do.

2. Make sure to balance your work and personal life

While being career-driven is a good thing, it’s important to remember when to draw the line. If you’re hustling all the time without taking proper breaks, you’re eventually gonna feel burnt out, affecting your overall health and wellbeing. 

That’s why you need to find the right balance between your work and personal life. It can even be as simple as logging off on time, avoiding checking your emails during the weekend, or taking short breaks in between work. 

This way, you’ll not only notice that you have less pressure and stress, but will also cherish every moment you get during your time off work. 

3. Don’t put your interests on the back burner

You are the main character of your own life, so don’t let others steal your spotlight. Too often do we put our interests aside for the sake of earning a living or making others happy. Instead, step up, be bold, and put yourself first.

Whether you’re a photography enthusiast who loves nothing more than to see the world through your lens, or a liquor aficionado who is always on the lookout for a scotch with richness and depth, it’s time to let your spirit soar.

4. Be present! Don’t dwell on the past or worry about the future.

Why worry about things you can’t change or have no control over if it ends up adding more stress in your life? After all, life is unpredictable, and plans often manifest themselves in ways you least expect them to. That’s why it’s important to find the right balance, and avoid overthinking or over-planning.

Therefore, let go of the past and future, and just enjoy being in the present, which is the moment you have control over right now. For example, knowing that your work for the day is done, why not enjoy the rest of the evening by relaxing and perhaps sipping on a glass of well-balanced Auchentoshan Three Wood whisky, instead of stressing out about tomorrow?

Ultimately, by being present, you will have a clearer picture of what you want and need to do, making living a carefree life easier and fulfilling.

5. Learn how to control your anger

Living a carefree life is about taking control of your emotions (especially your anger), instead of letting them control you.

While expressing your anger is healthy, remember to keep it under control, or you’ll end up hurting yourself and the people around you. So, by keeping your anger in check, you will have better control of the situation, and find that it’s so much easier to be zen and live life as it is. 

If you ever feel yourself losing your temper, try taking a few deep breaths, reminding yourself to be calm (using words like relax or calm down is effective too!), or journaling. 

6. Surround yourself with positive people

To live a carefree life, it’s important to cherish the people around you, especially those who love you, care for your wellbeing, and are always rooting for you. While many of us may not be able to see our friends or family for the next couple of weeks, we can still reach out to them virtually.

Plus, there are so many things you can do while on a video call with them, be it catching up with one another over a few glasses of Auchentoshan’s 18-Year-Old scotch, watching a movie, or even playing online games together.

7. Stop stressing out about what others think of you

It’s emotionally and mentally draining if you’re always worrying about what other people think of you while also trying to please everyone. Don’t let these worries haunt you, ’cause you’ll likely end up getting hurt. 

Make it a point to go with the flow and let things run its course. If you find yourself worrying again, try to distract yourself by doing relaxing activities, such as meditating, colouring, doing yoga, or going for a walk. 

At the end of the day, it’s up to you to define what living a carefree life means to you, and take the steps to make it a reality

As a reminder, the legal drinking age in Malaysia is 21 years old. That means you need to be 21 and non-Muslim in order to buy and consume alcohol. Remember to always drink responsibly and in moderation. If you plan to drink, try carpooling with a friend who isn’t drinking or catch a cab instead of driving.
