Nicole  Stern - The Leisure Principle


Finding calm in the eye of the storm

Stop and take a deep breath to come back to yourself. Find inner calm. In a word, experience leisure. More people are yearning for this – because they feel that it is exactly what will put body and soul back into balance. The rediscovery of leisure can revolutionise our lives. It is closer to us than we realise.

Using her own life story, Nicole Stern illustrates that leisure is actually more than just being calm. Leisure contributes to quality of life, creativity, fulfilment, and inner freedom. It calls for a benevolent attitude toward ourselves and others, and gives us room for our own feelings and needs. Even in professional life, in times of crisis, and when facing great challenges is it possible to find leisure.

•Leisure, a true meditation: how we can make use of the transformational power of time-outs

•With reflections and inspirations for decelerating everyday life and making leisure an integral part of our own life
