International Downshifting Week

Haven't posted for ages but have been getting a lot of stuff done. I will catch up on events soon I'm sure.

For now, just a quick post about International Downshifting Week, which starts on Saturday next, 19th April:

"If you are looking for a little help to slow down your pace and enjoy life more, this is the place for you!

Our campaign was formerly known as 'National' Downshifting Week. This year, as a result of the strong support we've received from around the globe asking if other countries can officially 'join in', we've simply decided to rename it
'InterNational Downshifting Week'!"

As I normally find out about these things after the event I was glad to hear about this one. I already do a lot of the things suggested but I think having a 'week' is a good idea to help me re-focus my attention. Sometimes I'm so busy trying to simplify and downshift that I forget what it's all about! I'm making a good start to it though as my car insurance runs out tomorrow, 17th April and despite not having managed to sell my car yet I haven't caved and just renewed the insurance so from tomorrow I'll be a car-less person, back to enjoying the simple pleasures of walking to the shops and so on.

Happy Wednesday all!

Hey Moonwaves,

Thank you so much for putting a post up about IDW! I'm glad it's inspired you and it's kind of you to draw attention to it.

I hope more people dip into the simple, living ideas we've listed and find their own green groove...
