Every day, we make hundreds of small actions without even thinking about them. Pulling out our smartphones, clicking the one-click purchase button, pulling down to refresh the social media feed, and more. Automatic actions that have become so deeply programmed into our lives that we don't have the chance to stop and ask ourselves a very important question: Do I actually want to do this right now?

From the creator of the award-winning Slow Home podcast comes Slow - the perfect companion on the long road to living a simpler and more fulfilled life. Once upon a time, Brooke McAlary thought she was close to having it all. Married to a wonderful man, mother to a lively young daughter and pregnant for a second time, she'd acquired all the things she'd once thought important - holidays, cars, a renovated home. Yet despite this, she found herself utterly despondent.

Where does Slow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Thought provoking and minus the fluff. Sometimes I tune out with audiobooks that are too dense, or I simply don't finish listening to them. This one, I finished in 2 days because it was highly engaging.

What did you like best about this story?

Real life examples from Brooke's own life, plus suggestions for getting started (the emphasis on there being no one-way to live a slower life).

What does Brooke McAlary bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Her voice!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Vulnerability shared in some of the author's life lessons.
