We live in a hectic world. The more we try to save time, the less time we seem to have. In every area of our lives, we are doing things faster. But now a worldwide movement, the Slow Movement, advocates a cultural shift toward slowing down life’s pace. It has been defined as movement or action at a relaxed or leisurely pace. It started in Italy with the slow food movement, which emphasizes traditional food production techniques in response to the emergence of fast food. Slow living also incorporates slow money and slow cities. Its supporters are people who believe that a happier and healthier way of life is possible. One asserted benefit is that living at a fast pace can make people feel their lives are chaotic while slowing down can mean they can enjoy life more and be more conscious of sensory cues.
