In Praise of Slow

Is it possible to slow down in the 21st Century?

While the source of this posts information is several years old, I find the topic compelling. Perhaps what makes the idea of slow new, is the subtle and not so subtle ways we might utilize slow to improve our lives.

Moving through the last couple decades, the topic of pace and the idea of slowing down have captivated much of my thought. Partly due to injuries and health concerns, yet a greater draw are my thoughts around quality not quantity, the idea of less as more, and even the practice of absence of.

In terms of massage and the business of massage, the idea of slowing down inspires interest on how to serve the growing awareness of slow in the 21st century. How can we capitalize by integrating slow into our health, our work, our business, our life?

The question sent me researching, and I found this video on (Click here for Video)

"Journalist Carl Honore believes the Western world's emphasis on speed erodes health, productivity and quality of life. But there's a backlash brewing, as everyday people start putting the brakes on their all-too-modern lives."

Watch the video and contemplate your own ideas about how pace may affect you and how it could impact your business.
