EPISODE 238: Why Slow Medicine is the Future

Your typical doctor’s visit is less than 7 minutes long. It doesn’t matter if you have a broken bone, a tonsil infection, or pancreatic cancer, most of the time you’re in and out faster than seems possible. It’s not the doctor’s fault, it’s the system’s fault, and the solution is to slow down everything in our lives to achieve balance. But who wants to go slow? Not you, not me… so what to do?

On this week’s show, we’ll look at creative solutions to finding more quality downtime in life without compromising your goals, ambitions or excitement.

Listen in to learn:

  • Why community support is the linchpin for health
  • Why we need to properly define what “health” really means (it’s not young and beautiful)
  • Why slowing down can be the ultimate self-care routine
  • Why quality “slow time” is more important than quality
