Have you ever sat down and done absolutely nothing? No TV, no food, no reading, no smartphone. Nothing at all. Just you. Alone. Without distracting companions.

Unlike what you may think, this would not impact your productiveness. Instead, it would allow you to be more focused and effective. Slowing down in order to focus more, be more productive and fulfilled: it is possible!

In 2005 Carl Honoré – a renowned Canadian journalist – led the compelling Ted Talk ‘In Praise of Slowness’ on the benefits of slowing down. Not just as a general idea, but also as a way of living your life. He also described the deeper connections that can spring from a slower pace: a more engaging relationship with your loved ones, your profession, your personal life and - last but not least - with yourself.
