Slow Down Movement



Why are we in a hurry almost always if we have the technology to helps us to save time... the reason is that our society in some how pull us to this sensation. If so, what we do not to save time for other things neigther work or duties... Have U ever planned to star a nex hobby? Do U have a book waiting to be read?
How many things did U planned to make these last two years and U haven't done?... or last week? We do not have to clean our plates or clothes by hand and still we seems like we live in a constantly rush... The SDM started in Rome when McDonald's open a restaurant in the Piazza di Spagna, professor Guttorm Fløistad summarizes:

The only thing for certain is that everything changes. The rate of change increases. If you want to hang on you better speed up. That is the message of today. It could however be useful to remind everyone that our basic needs never change. The need to be seen and appreciated! It is the need to belong. The need for nearness and care, and for a little love! This is given only through slowness in human relations. In order to master changes, we have to recover slowness, reflection and togetherness. There we will find real renewal.

The movement has evolved to Slow Art, Slow Design, Slow City... it shows us that we need to take our time in activities like having lunch... don´t be in a rush when you are not suposed to. We don't organize our time, we don't leave stupid things and put first the important things. We spend so much time in facebook, net, tv... instead of reading, having a quick sleep, taking our time to do things in a proper way...
