clock and moneyInterNational Downshifting Week is a non-profit awareness campaign designed to help you slow down your pace, lean towards the green and get a better handle on the work/life balance in favour of life.

It was founded in 2003 by contented downshifter Tracey West, who believes a little downshifting can have a powerful impact on your physical health, your mental well-being, your relationships with colleagues, family and friends; it can even improve your sex life.

Take a leisurely meander through the site to explore the ways Individuals, Companies and Children and Schools can adopt the downshifters approach.

Then dip your toes into a slower way of living and give a positive embrace to living with less.

You might just find your whole world changing colour. . .
