For more than ten years now, Flow has been promoting the message to live life slower. To seek happiness in the little things and to embrace life with all its ups and downs. We have made ten videos around these topics, with life lessons that are so very much needed in these hectic times. Lessons that we didn’t learn at school, but which we will benefit from all our lives. You can watch the first video in this series below.
Happiness is in the little things
It’s the small things in life that matter. Bigger is not always better. True happiness lies in the details. The unexpected special moments, being spontaneous, reading in between the lines. It is watching the sun go down, stroking a pet, reading a nice poem, baking your favorite cake, seeing frost on your window. It is doing and seeing things with full, loving attention. Being aware of the little things in life makes it so much more colorful.
