I am Slowing Down.

August 21, 2008

I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about it on this blog but I’ve always enjoyed and promoted the idea of slowing down your life and taking it all in. I try to do this myself but it’s something hard to do especially with the way American culture is.

This video is a talk by journalist Carl Honore who believes that the speed that we crave in our culture is shortening our lives. Eating slower would be healthier, working slower would produce better work, having sex slower would provide a better orgasm. This talk is definitely something worth watching.
