1) Slow: Seeking Stillness in Fast Paced Times

 

Slow: Seeking Stillness in Fast Paced Times by [Phillips, Carl]

 

We live in fast paced times. We’re trying to squeeze ever more into already busy diaries.

We want to do it all.

We want to achieve it all.

We want to taste all that life has to offer.

But too much packed into our lives leads us quickly to more stress. It leads to less quality time for the things and the people that are really most important to us. A balance has been tipped.

While moving at pace has its place, sometimes we need something else. Sometimes we just need time to be. We need time for others. We need time for slow.

That’s what this book is all about, making time in our lives for slowing down.

Reconnecting with our need to enjoy some downtime.

Rediscovering our ability to rest and recharge.

To unplug from our busy worlds occasionally and find the joy in slow.

 

2) A Short Guide to Living Well

Too often in life we get caught up in being in motion. Busy being busy.

We aren’t always good at just stopping and reflecting on where we are. Reflecting on why we are here and also where we want to get to. Reflecting on whether what we are doing is helping or hindering. Adding to our stress or increasing our feelings of happiness.

Reflecting on whether this life we are living is the best it can be.

To live well we absolutely need this time for reflection. We need to hit the pause button on life occasionally.

To live well we need to separate the important from the not so important. We need to focus on what matters most. We need to suck the juice out of life. Try, touch, taste and feel all the good it has to offer.

A Short Guide to Living Well will introduce, or remind, the reader of those things that can really add value to our lives. The important stuff.

Chapters are broken down into several broad themes (Happiness, Purpose, Health, Productivity, Simplicity, Minimalism, Self, Gratitude).

Life is meant to be lived well.

 

3) Need Less, Live More (Treading Lightly in a World of More)

We live in a world invested in more. More is the answer, so we are sold.

But more isn’t working for many of us.

More commitments lead to more stress.

More material possessions just becomes more stuff to manage.

More appointments in our diary leads to less quality time spent with our families.

In a world where more is the answer so many of us think we should be reaching for, why are we still left unfulfilled?

In a world where more is all around us, sometimes we forget about the power of less.

Less isn’t as easy to sell. Less isn’t quite so sexy for the ad men to wrap a story behind. Less isn’t easy to profit from.

Nonetheless, as many are finding out, the right sort of less works. As we tire of the treadmill of more it’s obvious that less is in fact the answer we should be searching for.

That’s what this book is all about. Finding the right sort of less in a world of more. Finding a version of less that lets us live more but worry less. Experience more but accumulate less. Need less but live more.
