“For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.” — Lily Tomlin
“Slow living isn’t about doing everything in life as slowly as possible. It’s about doing everything at the right speed. It’s about saying “no” to the things that don’t add value to your life so you can fully say “yes” to the things that do. Slow living is about well-being and doing everything as well as possible instead of as fast as possible.” — Kyle Kowalski
Quick, let’s talk about the Slow Living Movement!
I was delighted to find a website that I really clicked with called Sloww.Co. It’s written by Kyle Kowalski, a former workaholic who accumulated stuff to fill up his ever-growing void, leading him to ask “Is that all there is?”. So, he began an exploration to learn everything he could about how to lead a more fulfilling life – luckily, we get to share the benefits of his research.
I highly recommend his site; he writes simply and engagingly (nothing too woo-woo). You’ll find a bounty of blogs, podcast suggestions, fun challenges, book reviews and more. Reading just a few of his posts energized and inspired me to think about trying new strategies to enjoy life more.
The good news? You really can decide you don’t need to put off being happy. Doesn’t that make you feel better already?
