Slow life for children at Likids

School, English lessons, swimming, football, drawing lessons, tennis, homework, revision time… STOP!
Don’t you think it would be worthwhile putting the brakes on their day-to-day lives and teaching them to enjoy free time? Time for playing, thinking, doing nothing, relaxing, letting their imaginations run wild…

The slow life philosophy

The slow lifestyle was pioneered in the late 80s by Carlo Petrini, who led a group of gastronomy enthusiasts in rebellion against the first fast food restaurant to open in the heart of the Italian capital. This was the beginning of the opposition to the “fast” lifestyle which, according to them, represented a serious threat to the slow, simple and healthy lifestyle enjoyed by Europeans. It served to create an alternative philosophy, named slow food, which sought to combat fast food along with the accelerated and destructive way of life it represents.

The benefits of slow life for children

If you stop to look, you will notice that our children are immersed in the “fast” life. Not just because of timetables and the burden of school and extracurricular activities, but also because of the way they view the world.
For them, everything must be “now”. Do you remember when we had to wait for our favourite TV show to start before we could watch it? Nowadays, everything is à la carte. It’s hard for them to do nothing, and they can’t stand boredom…
Teaching them to relax and keep everything around them in perspective is a very useful tool for both the present and future, as it will help them to face their daily lives with a calm serenity.
