The Little Book of Sloth Philosophy is a lovely book by American writer Jenny McCartney, with cute black-and-white illustrations. If you feel life too much in the fast line, find life lessons from the slowest and laziest animal on earth.
Sloths have poor digestion so can’t muster up enough energy for much anytime, no matter how much they eat. So relax, unwind and soak up the wisdom of the sloth, with the slowest page-turner you’ll ever read. From tidying and Hygge to Lagom – the endless pressure to be happier, live better, sleep soundly and eat mindfully…it’s all exhausting. Learn of the sloth’s mindfulness in action.
Contemplative, deliberate, relaxed and focused – sloths resist the rat race completely, and the pressures from society to be more productive. They don’t care how many steps they’ve logged on their fitness tracker. Long-limbed, a little bit shaggy and a wide-eyed, sloths are wonderful creatures, not to mention completely adorable.
Enjoy take-it-slow wisdom inspired by sloths. There is advice on sleep (more restorative than a 6am run), eating and ‘exercise’ (sloths are the original pioneers of slow food and yoga, after all). They also have tips on love, family life and work (did you know that lazy people have higher IQs?)
