What does slowing down mean? It means paying more attention to ourselves and noticing those small things that make us smile that we often run past so easily. Feeling the taste of a sun-kissed strawberry, seeking shapes in the ruffles of clouds, getting lost in the fragrant mood of tea, sitting and talking till dusk on the hillside as we run our fingers through the grass.

With the Slow Year Planner, we are supporting you month by month with inspirational quotes, advice, self-knowledge, and mindfulness exercises that will help you to slow down.

About The Slow Year Planner

We know that it is not easy to slow down. The modern world focuses on acceleration in virtually every area of ​​life, emphasizing that fast is equal to success. We work 12 to 14 hours a day, with our phone ringing all the time, we have lunch at our desk and on the weekends we try to make up for everything we didn’t have time for in the past five days. We are out of our balance, our priorities are clouded, because it is hard to say no and to not lose focus on matters that are important to us.

In 2014, we came up with a unique journal concept to find solutions to the challenges of this accelerated world. Our Anti-határidőnapló (the name of our Hungarian planner) has been created to help people get back to their natural, joyful pace, the intimate moments spent with their family and friends, the energizing activities and the day-to-day fun. It turned out to be one of our most colourful, lovable projects, and for the first time ever, it is now available in English, as Slow Year Planner.

How does the Slow Year Planner help?


In the Slow Year Planner, all of the advice that we have described are influenced by the goodness and science of conscious presence. By reminding ourselves of gratitude, self-care, patience, trust and kindness, we support the development of a slow attitude in your life.


The Slow Year Planner has been created to make sure slowing down does not create just another source of stress in your life, but an opportunity to have playful minutes, smiles and creative ideas in your everyday life. We pass on this professional methodology through funny drawings, with small, but important ideas and self-reflective questions.


At the beginning and the end of the year and each month, we encourage you to stop for a moment and think about what happened in the past and where are you now. The first milestone in deceleration and change is to know where we have come from. In addition, throughout the year, we support you with self-reflective questions about gratitude, self-care, mindfulness and other topics that help you develop.


With every Slow Year Planner comes two sets of slow stickers that help slowing down be more playful. You will find all the important topics: “off-day” and conversation stickers, as well as me-time, digital detox, and even little sloth stickers. In the Slow Year Planner, we are inspiring you with stickers for 18 different slow activities.


For years we have been collecting the world days we consider worthy to celebrate. With the Slow Year Planner, you won’t by any chance forget about Winnie-the-Pooh Day or World Kindness Day. Throughout the year, these slow holidays will remind you to slow down, do some origami or give away a book every once in a while, and laugh and smile as often as you have the chance.
