Slowing down in the city

If this blog I created almost four years ago, has only one objective, it would be the one to learn to slow down, to live according to the seasons, either we live in the countryside or in the city … However, everyday, I struggle with this hard goal, often difficult to achieve …More and more intense work,  mental load (yes, the famous one), full agenda … In short, not easy  to slow down on a daily basis!
