Slow living (sometimes capitalized "Slow Living") is a lifestyle choice. Authors Beth Meredith and Eric Storm summarize slow living as follows:
Slow Living means structuring your life around meaning and fulfillment. Similar to "voluntary simplicity" and "downshifting," it emphasizes a less-is-more approach, focusing on the quality of your life. ... Slow Living addresses the desire to lead a more balanced life and to pursue a more holistic sense of well-being in the fullest sense of the word.
Jason Drebitko, a US-based business development consultant and former CEO of fine furniture, pottery and home accessory maker, ShackletonThomas, has defined slow living as both a lifestyle and consumer behavior philosophy. Drebitko notes that Slow Living from the perspective of consumer behavior, translates across product categories into purchasing decisions based on a common set of brand attributes/values emphasizing quality rather than quantity, authenticity, environmental and social responsibility.
