Slow Down and Green Up

Coinciding happily with Earth Day, this coming week is Downshifting Week. Downshifting is about slowing down the pace of your life, changing your attitude about stuff and, of course, being more green.

Consuming less is a main tenet of being green, as detailed in this article by Laura Sevier in the EcologistOnline. Some Downshifters encourage radical lifestyle changes, but even a modest reduction in your daily pace can enable you to reassess your life and purpose: where you’ve been, where you are, where you want to go and how you want to get there.

So slow down, smell those proverbial roses, then check out the links and let us know what you think about Downshifting. Maybe you’ve already Downshifted. If so, share your experience with the rest of us in the comment section in the lower right hand corner of this post.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive Earth Day.
