#BookReview The Little Book of Sloth Philosophy by Jennifer McCartney


About the book


Relax, unwind and soak up the wisdom of the sloth with the slowest page turner you’ll ever read.


From tidying and Hygge, to living Lagom, the endless pressure to be happier, live better, sleep soundly, and eat mindfully can be exhausting. But this year’s lifestyle trend finally delivers the perfect antidote – welcome to the year of the sloth.


Sloths are mindfulness in action. Contemplative, deliberate, relaxed, and focused. They resist the rat race, the incessant pressures from society to be more productive, and they don’t care how many steps they’ve logged on their fitness tracker. Long-limbed, a little bit shaggy, and a lot wide-eyed, they’re wonderful creatures, not to mention completely adorable.


Here you can enjoy take-it-slow wisdom inspired by sloths; including advice on sleep (more restorative than a 6am run), eating and ‘exercise’ (sloths are the original pioneers of slow food and yoga after all), work (did you know that lazy people have higher IQs?), family life, and love.


Dispelling over-complicated myths about productivity, this brilliant book confirms that it really is OK to be a sloth.

MY REVIEW


Such a perfect little book!! I think the whole world needs to embrace the Sloth Philosophy and I've thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon reading this and there's so much to take away from having a different approach to the frenetic, mad world we live in nowadays.

This book has a fun look at how we can all improve our wellbeing and outlook on life if we just take a few pointers from the Sloths of the world - and it all feels achievable! Just little mind changes and activities we can do that can really help us in not feeling so down on ourselves and situations we may find ourselves in. And especially with the advent of social media where outdoing everyone else seems to be the number priority for some, this book helps you figure out that moving at your own pace and doing things you like and not copying others is what we should all be striving for.

There are also a number of very cute illustrations throughout which were just perfect and would make for some lovely t-shirts! There's lists of books to read, songs to listen to, little quizzes to take as well and it was just a wonderful little pick me up read and the perfect gift for people you know who need to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life!
