The Japanese drama "I want to leave work on time" said: "Never do so dedicated to the work of people, but also for their own lives." Does it really mean to be fulfilled by living fast and efficiently every day? Perhaps we should rethink the meaning of slowing down, and vacation is a stop-and-flower point, an opportunity to make life time reset.
Think of the holiday, you are suddenly relieved, thinking too good, finally can let yourself slow down to rest?
From Monday all the way to Friday, you feel that your own strength is as fast as time, thinking about life to be fast, everything is about speed. 24 hours a day, it's time to fill up, assuming that full schedules and quick action will enrich yourself every day. But is that really good?
We ate a bowl of noodles at the table and couldn't chew finely the good taste of food; a quick glance at each tourist beauty, but no way to stop to see the beauty of a flower; and more importantly, we had fewer opportunities to communicate with each other. The quality of life lost by modern people in pursuit of efficiency is a profound feeling and link to life.

This Ted Talk may make you rethink the meaning of slowing down, and vacation is a stop-and-flower point, an opportunity to make time reset. (Recommended reading: To you in your foreset: life is so short that you have to be the master of your own time)
While pursuing speed, you ignore the price of life.
In The Ted Talk, a journalist who has published Slow Live, carl Honor? talks about the modern man's over-emphasis on "efficiency".
Every detail of life becomes in our eyes. "Waste of time" trifles, such as walking, we talk about walking; reading a book, starting to pursue how to see fast and deep; a date, a quick date; eating to stand and eat, which is faster than sitting and eating; visiting a city, staying only 10 minutes at each attraction to visit all the attractions; and hanging up before a sports fat-burning class. The word "fast" can help office workers who have difficulty spending time exercising to solve problems; Carl Honor? shared that he even took to the streets of New York to see a gym with a night-time class ad for "Quick Yoga."

It sounds funny, but when you think about it, is you also falling into the pursuit of a "fast" and "efficient" pace of life?
In the collective cult of "walking" life, Carl Honor?raises the seriousness behind it: "We are so immersed in the pursuit of speed in life, but ignore the cost of life behind it." Our health, work, diet, relationships and even the operation of society as a whole are closely related to the culture of walking. We live with speed, but live a life that is not down-to-earth every day.
It's fast, not good, says Carl Honor? Life will accelerate to the point where it is unable to load, warning us that it may be any form, such as an outbreak of disease, that means the body can no longer be loaded. Carl Honor? had a time of warning, and he used to spend every night sing a bedside story for his son, the closest time to each other. But he didn't have the patience to read to his son, and even found a book called "One Minute Bedside Story" just to speed up reading the bedside story. But the next second he jumped out of another thought: Is he really in a hurry to spend only a minute on his son?
'We should change the way we look at time, not as a limited resource, not as a limited resource, but as a circular, constantly updating,' says Carl Honor. Society is not willing to slow down, there is also a great reason for the community to "slow" on the negative label, if you do not grasp the time, is slow, slow is a lazy, not seeking progress of the very evil thing. But is that true? More and more universities, such as Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, etc., are starting to advocate slowing down to students, without thinking about filling your college life with all kinds of extracurricular activities, you can do less, but spend more time on what you think is important - realexperience life.
"Speed has become a barrier, making it impossible for us to understand the deeper problems. 'When we only care about how to speed up, we don't have time to ask ourselves, "Do it be good or not," says Carl Honor? 」
Live in the day, not smuggle it self-smuggling at speed
It is the case that Italy launched the Slow Food Movement in 1989, which is arguably the forerunner of the slow-living movement and has so far become popular in 122 countries around the world. The so-called slow food, that is, in the process of planting, cooking, eating, do not seek speed, but through slow food, to obtain health and happiness.
Now you, have to feel the meaning of life and satisfaction? Perhaps just like slow food, we should also start our own slow life, to taste every detail of life in detail.
Let's just start the holiday! Give yourself a little exercise: Get up in the morning and don't rush to fill the vacation with a day to do what you wanted to do. Pull out the three things you want to do most, or one thing, maybe spend three hours reading a book, maybe you're out for two hours for a delicious breakfast with your family, or you might want to spend a whole day in the air. Before planning today's trip, discard the idea of living "effectively" 24 hours a day.

When he no longer forces himself to overload, carl Honor? says, he no longer feels the same approach as a chariot: "I feel happy, healthy, more productive, and seem to be living my life, not in a hurry." And when you feel more profound, strong, and rich in relationships with others, you do it slowly. 」
When you live in time, you will no longer feel that time is passing, but life, cycle more than.
Have you decided to start a slow life?
