4 “Hurry up, you ‘ll be late!” Rush is the motor of all our actions It is the grand prix kinetics that surrounds all our life, speeding it up, making the most out of every single second. Everything for a speed that does not make us better…

5 Our Lives

6 Examples Food Just A calorie-vitamin input ↓ Correctly cooked and pleasantly consumed

7 Examples Work Work overload is the cause of some of the most worrying disorders in the Western world today ↓ Slowing down the pace can improve workers’ productivity

8 Examples Cities Traffic jams, horns of cars, stress, irritation, tiredness ↓ Pedestrian-friendly spaces free from traffic buzz and noise

9 Our Driving

10 Driving “Crazy”drivers: Fast, Aggressive, Always in a hurry Multi-tasking: phone, smoke, sms, coffee Giving priority is a “must do”, not a “nice-to-do”

11 Why don’t we slow down ?

12 Slow attitude criticized… Slowness is often related to negative values. Clumsiness, disinterest, tedium are dimensions that do not include the positive effects resulting from a i.paused, ii.well-thought and iii.safe attitude.

13 But we agree on that… Important decisions can not be always taken randomly or impulsively!

14 Slow Driving!

16 There is more to life than increasing its speed. (Gandhi)

17 Plan of action 1.Psychologists enrich the argumentation 2.CAST helps maximize the impact 3.Campaigning to universities and toll 4.Free CD with relaxed music for driving ↓ E.g. REGGAE !!!

18 Thank you!

19 Advice from the experts! 1.Have a cup of tea and stretch your feet out of the window. Don’t try this while driving. 2.Spend some quality time in the bathtub, and if you have company, so much the better. 3.Write down these words and place them where you can see them: Multitasking is doing any of them properly. 4.Do not be pushed into answering a question right away. Take your time. 5.Don’t wear a watch, don’t worry, you’ll know the time when you need to. 6.Yawn often. Yawning is good for your health. 7.Listen to a Mozart composition in its original tempo.
