International Downshifting Week


It’s International Downshifting Week this week (19-25 April). Downshifting is about slowing down, leading a simpler life and looking at finding a better work/life balance.

Some of the suggestions on the official web site are:

  • Cook a meal from scratch, using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, preferably organic.

  • Plant something in the garden you can cultivate and eat.

  • Start a compost heap.
I like the time suggestion, which is to book a half-day off work and to spend entirely with someone you love, no DIY allowed! Except that I want my quarry tiles laid!!
