Aren't u & I feel tired of this life at least several times a day? I mean 24 hours doesn't seem to be enough to do all the things that we wanna do. Life is so fast with fast foods, fast driving, rapid learning, rapid developoment etc...yet we're always falling behind, running after something which keeps eluding us.

The 'Slow Movement' has been set up to turn this around. They promote the idea of living slowly. Turn down the volume in our life stereos. Driven by the success owned by the 'Slow Food' campaign of the italians against the 'Fast Food'/Big Mac culture, there are many 'Slow Cities' now set up (mainly in Italy).

A slow city emphasises on less traffic, less noise, home made food, scholls paying more attention to life/morale/purpose, domestic industries etc...

Although u can't have all our cities to be slow overnight we can pick some ideas from these movements and try to give our selves more time to enjoy life at least make time to see for ourselves how it flows....
