Otters are some of the most delightful animals on the planet. This follow-up to the sensational The Little Book of Sloth Philosophy looks at what these long, lean, and otterly joyful mammals can teach about living our best lives.
Relax, unwind and soak up the wisdom of the sloth with the slowest page turner you´ll ever read. From tidying and Hygge, to living Lagom, the endless pressure to be happier, live better, sleep soundly, and eat mindfully can be exhausting. But this year´s lifestyle trend finally delivers the perfect antidote welcome to the year of the sloth. Sloths are mindfulness in action. Contemplative, deliberate, relaxed, and focused. They resist the rat race, the incessant pressures from society to be more productive, and they don´t care how many steps they´ve logged on their fitness tracker. Long-limbed, a little bit shaggy, and a lot wide-eyed, they´re wonderful creatures, not to mention completely adorable.
