“Rescuing the next generation from the cult of speed means reinventing our whole philosophy of childhood”.

“In Praise of Slowness: How a Worldwide Movement is Challenging the Cult of Speed” by Carl Honoré. A compelling read that I can relate to in so many ways. How we are controlled by time and a fast paced society. From the slow food movement, meditation, health care, parenting, leisure time, work and schooling, slowing down can be positively beneficial.

“Perhaps the greatest challenge of the Slow movement will be to fix our neurotic relationship with time itself”.

Brooke at Slow your Home has interviewed Carl on her podcast The Slow Home Carl Honoré Talks Technology, Good Slow and Getting to Know Your Butcher – SHP009 . Its well worth the listen.

Here is Carl’s TED talk: In Praise of Slowness.
