Today I’m sharing 5 simple slow looking ideas for the summer. 

In our fast-paced society, we scan, we skim and we scroll. We have forgotten what it’s like to really look at something.

Slow looking is a wonderful alternative to life in the fast lane.

The 5 activities I'll be sharing in this episode are simple, effective ways to slow down, improve your observational skills and focus and notice more details around you. 

You can use these slow looking activities throughout the summer - either on your own or with friends and family and children.

All of the activities are designed to help you develop your ability to see - and in doing so, spark creativity, curiosity and improve focus.
By the end of this episode you’ll have a range of great ideas to keep yourself and others engaged in slow looking in a range of different environments (outside and inside), some involve art and some do not.

All are designed to help improve your observation skills, help you to slow down and to have a wonderful time this summer.

Which activity are you going to try? I’d love to hear how you get on with any of this activities, Please share your thoughts, photos, sketches and or notes via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter using the hashtag #summerslowlooking
