slow living is a mindful reassessment of how we divide our time

Modern life is infused with an unshakable sense that time is speeding up. We live in a hyper-connected world that brings with it an acute awareness of the possibilities that exist, and all these possibilities come with the looming sense that there will never be quite enough time to do all we want to do in life.
