Nowadays, there is an obsession with speed and time savings. This has led us to rage in the streets, rage in offices, rage in shops, rage in relationships, rage in vacations and in the gym ...
To slow down is to give back time and peace to establishing relationships that are meaningful and important to us: relationships with others, with nature, relationships with work and things we love to do, and relationships with our own body and mind.
