Who’s behind Go Slow Living?


Hi, I’m Elena, a high-sensitive person (HSP), mother, compassionate & carrying.

A degree in Business and Economics, a career path in marketing and communications and life as a mother. Two opposites of the often hard and direct business world and the gentle and warm care for others. Both have shaped me as a person during my life journey.

Gifted with sensitivity, a holistic view of life, attention for the relationship of body and mind and feeling for interpersonal relationships. I am curious and not afraid of asking questions. A thinker yet practical & hands-on mentality, attention to detail and somewhat a perfectionist.

I love old wisdom and love to dig it out:-).

I get energized when I pick up some long-forgotten knowledge, blow the dust off it, tuck it into a new outfit and tadaaa…you get an easy and gentle new way to solve your problem. One of my talents is to make complicated things easy and pleasant.

And I add some personal touch to it. Something rare and so scarce these days, isn’t it?


Creative, curious, open-minded, enthusiastic and caring. That’s me.


What do I do?


GoSlowLiving is the place where I want to help you get your balance back. To stop, breathe and just be!


Go Slow Living stands for a personal touch, small scale and a spark of artisan flavour.


You get back to balance when you consciously choose experiences that have added value for you. Take one small step every day. They don’t have to be much, but real and meaningful. Deep inside you know when to step on the gas and when it is time foyou to start with “downshifting” and hit the brakes. “Tempo guisto” they call it in Italy, in Denmark they do “hygge” and in Sweden “lagom”.
