Time... Invisible, non-palpable and imperceptible and yet our most precious asset.
"I'm running out of time", "Time goes by at one of those speeds", "I haven't had time", "I'm wasting my time"... It's so complicated to appreciate it in this world that lives and evolves at a hundred miles an hour. We end up mistreating this precious time, wasting it and not enjoying the moments of life that are offered to us. Between family life, work and others, we do not always manage to free up time. But taking it is therapy! This is why the " Slow Life " movement has developed.
Slow Life, what is it?
Created in the 80s, this movement developed in order to counter " Fast-Living ", in other words the acceleration and rapid development of everything around us: new technologies, rapid information, imposed deadlines...
So how does this movement help us? He simply invites us to slow down , appreciate each moment , savor it in some way. A true way and philosophy of life, Slow Life pushes us to become aware of each moment, and is based on the following values: nature, respect, love, sharing ...
This movement has been developed in various fields:
The "Slow Food"against "Fast Food". It advocates food biodiversity, respect for nature and the environment as well as producers.
The "Slow Tourism" highlighting the fact of traveling in a more eco-responsible way, taking the time to contemplate the landscapes and meet new people.
The "Slow Management"which offers better working conditions, opposing stress, automation...
The "Slow Cosmetics" which highlights natural and organic products as well as homemade cosmetics recipes.
But "Slow Life" is above all having a slower pace of life, reconnecting with yourself and nature, living simple moments and listening to yourself. It is also giving time to others, family or friends. It is to develop one's senses and one's creativity. But above all: appreciate the T moment . Taking your time is also doing things better, because acting in haste sometimes leads us to do things wrong. Often, moreover, taking a break in a hectic day allows us to ensure greater efficiency afterwards.
A few tips...
Give yourself moments just for you, a cocoon of slowness alone or with others encouraging you to refocus on what really matters, what makes you feel good and above all not feeling guilty for doing it. "I have so much to do, I don't have time to allow myself this moment". Well, yes, because taking this time gives you back your vitality. "Do nothing", focus on an activity, an objective, a goal... And above all unplug! Return by bike or on foot, take the time to read. On weekends, stay away from your emails, take the time to spend time with your loved ones. Promote local markets, seasonal fruits and vegetables .... Suspend time, flee the virtual . Give yourself moments of playful activities such as gardening, writing, music, travel... Experiment!
