Honore, C (2005) TED talk: In praise of slowness Available at: https://www.ted.com/talks/carl_honore_praises_slowness?language=en
(Accessed: September 2018)
"a break in the mindset that fast is best.."
"live better" by slowing down
"more pleasure and health" (slogan taken from the slow food movement)
relaxation, deeper psychological state of being
slow city movement - connect with one another - "slow down to smell the roses"
quality of life and productivity go hand in hand - Scandinavian countries are proving this
let the brain slide into the creative mode of thought
decompress and slow down for what is important - family time, time spent outdoors, a lunch break, a walk..
think creatively and dream
time to enjoy and savoir
it is a cultural taboo - slow=lazy, dopey, stupid
there is a "good slow" - take time to eat with family and without the television, making the time to savior your life
