Being a modern-day hippie can include so many definitions. Tree Huger, Free Spirit, Hippie...what do these words mean to you?
Sometimes these phrases are difficult to explain out loud, but once you read the definition, there's a light bulb moment where you say, "Hey, that's me!"
Take a look at these words all about the hippie culture and lifestyle and let us know which one you are!
Hippie (n.): a lover of peace, love and happiness. Comfortable enough with themselves that they do not hold judgement against anyone else. Most likely seen wearing tie-dye, fringe, slogan tees or a combination of the three. Commonly found at farmer's markets, music festivals, or out amongst the Earth and trees.
Wanderlust (n.): the irresistible, incurable desire to travel or wander. Longing for the freedom of exploration and the urge to experience all that the world has to offer. That restless feeling when you're stuck in the same place for too long (which COVID has us all feeling).
