The Slow Life movement is a holistic philosophy of life, a way of understanding the world around us and how we can live it day by day.
What is the slow life movement?
It is very easy to understand with the example of gastronomy: fast food is made in a hurry, in an industrial way and with low quality. This extends to other aspects of life because due to globalization we live a lifestyle that could be called fast life, because we are always in a hurry.
Slow life is the opposite, a movement to get away from stress and live a quieter life. It is a way to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take life differently. It's about enjoying every action, every moment and every person.
The Slow movement is also related to taking care of the planet, organic food and products, focusing on proximity and enjoying every detail. It does not shy away from technology and modern advances, but always preserves the tradition of good workmanship.
How to start, how to take the first steps in the slow life?
Unfortunately we cannot make a 180-degree turn in our lives from one day to the next.
Over the years our way of being, our attitudes and how we face challenges and problems in life become solidified. It is difficult to break these patterns and, in the meantime, the present slips through our fingers and does not return.
But there is something we can do to begin to turn our busy lives around and that is to disconnect for small periods of time to slow down the frenetic pace. This can be achieved with getaways, spiritual retreats or a simple change of environment, and then return refreshed to our little world with a new perspective.
