Slow Down!

Did you know?
· French people, even though they work 35 hours per week, tend to be more productive than the Americans or the British.
· The Germans have established 28.8 hour workweeks in places like VW and have seen their productivity been driven up by 20%.

Given the facts, it’s amazing how many companies still believe that a person who works longer hours is necessarily a better worker. And our very own worth of self is often measured by how many hours we’ve worked this week (“Wow, I put in 67 hours this week: I must be really crucial to my company’s survival!”)

Globalisation and consumerism have generated the sense of "hurry", fuelled by the desire of "having in quantity" (life status) versus "having with quality", "life quality" or the "quality of being".

This Easter, we’d like to invite you to sit down and take things slowly. Enjoy Slow Food (the opposite of Fast Food): healthy environmentally-friendly food prepared by loving hands and eaten among family and friends. Switch off the computer. Take a long pleasant walk. Put away the list of chores. Savour each passing hour. Have a wonderful holiday.

With best wishes from us all at Prashnig Style Solutions,, the home of Learning Styles and Style Diversity.
