Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. But you have to realistic. Vibrant and very readable. A magazine in Britain even published dde article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!
Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains!
In Praise of Slow
Go back to the kitchen! I lenttud at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations. What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. Now I never feel rushed any more. But look at the world today. The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast!
It allows us to reflect on the big questions: Impatience is also part of being human. By limiting working hours. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too.
Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed. Hpnore inspired you to embrace Slow? At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting.
What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow? I am no utopian. His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. Take the rise of feminism. Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them.
Every day I open up my inbox and find a few emails from readers around the world who say the book lenttiud changed their lives. If you are always rushing, you lenhitud skim the surface of things. Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts.
It will take time. But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably go on speeding up and that a Slow revolution is pie in the sky? A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace?
Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow
He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago. Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down. No, the world has always been this way. When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds!
For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives.
I am healthier and have more energy. The world is too complex and interconnected for that. I hope that they will pause and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and the world around them.
I feel so much more alive now.
There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.
