Clients report that despite doing many things each day, most of which are done quickly, they still feel stressed, underaccomplished, and tired. Despite speeding up almost everything, including human maturation, we are not any happier or healthier. That is why the “Slow Movement” is attracting attention. In Session Eleven, clients learn how to deliberately slow down and develop an awareness of how to savor. In so doing, they learn to attend mindfully to the positives. The central positive psychotherapy practices covered in this session are Slow and Savor. The chapter provides a list of readings, videos, and websites that relate to slowness and savoring and offers two worksheets to practice the concepts learned in the chapter. The chapter also includes a real-life case study that illustrates how to engage in slowness and savoring.
