Mindfulness teaches us to slow down, pay attention to media habits, and find new ways of relating to technology, other people, and ourselves. If we want to create more sustainable lives, a good place to start is by deliberately using media, not letting media use us. The choice is ours: to let digital devices distract us, or to put ourselves back into the moment.
Mindfulness is a vital virtue of Slow living in its sundry forms. When you are mindful, you actually slow down your perception of time, expand your subjective experience, and increase the density of information that you perceive and remember. Simply put: being mindful means slowing down your mind.
