Carl Honoré is an award-winning writer and speaker who's been hailed "an in demand spokesman on slowness." He believes we should all put on the brakes to enjoy our lives more thoroughly.
His latest book The Slow Fix is about finding the best way to tackle complex problems in every walk of life, from health and relationships to business and politics. Our addiction to superficial, short-term quick fixes is backfiring badly in so many ways. This book explores how to start forging solutions that actually work both now and in the long term.
When we asked him how we can slow down our day-to-day lives, he came up with seven things we can all start doing right now. Why not print a copy of these tips and post it on your fridge as a daily reminder to take things slower?
