Several months back we talked about the Slow Movement. Do you remember? Have you found ways to slow down? I know I haven’t!
Well, Carl Honore, the author of award winning book, In Praise of Slowness, is absolutely positive about everyday people “putting on the brakes” to their speedy modern lives and sees a shift in societies around the world from fast to slow.
He recognizes the difficulty in this change of paradigm, but also emphasizes, that it is not about slowing down to a crawling pace, but rather slowing down int he right moments.
“By slowing down at the right moments, people find that they do everything better: They eat better; they make love better; they exercise better; they work better; they live better.”
Here is a short speech he gives about the need to slow down and how he came to advocate the slow movement.
Using the comparative, how can you live slower than you do today? If you achieve slowing down, do you believe life would be better?
