So we have a few tips to embrace the art of slow living.

Something that’s just for yourself. Try doodling or maybe take out those water colours you haven’t touched in ages- or just sit back relax and read a book. it’s therapeutic and gives the mind a chance to slow down and reboot.
Spend time in Nature.
Nature epitomizes slow living. Everything moves and grows in its own time, and the peace you can find being out in nature is unparalleled
Savouring Happy Moments.
Focus on enjoying them and that feeling of happiness or excitement. Allow the warmth of gratefulness for what you’ve been able to experience stay with you.
The opposite of multi-tasking. Focus on one thing at a time. When you feel the urge to switch to other tasks, pause, breathe, and pull yourself back.
Put your Phone away.
