“This surprising selection of programmes is the antithesis to the general direction much of television is going in. Slowing everything right down gives us the time to really observe things as they happen and this series of programmes celebrates the simple pleasures of life in the slow lane.”
BBC Four Goes Slow, Cassian Harrison, Channel Editor, BBC Four

Aha.. Having established that too many hours of tv will shorten your life there is now the suggestion to balance our rushed lives we should sit and spend hours watching film of paint drying. I sense you are checking post date to make sure it is not April 1. Where is your sense of adventure? A willingness to try new experiences. Come on slow down and smell that coffee. Actually watch the fish. I admit this recommendation comes with a health warning as it’s making me feel nauseous not relaxed but maybe just looking out the window could do instead.
Have a good night
