The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down: A Book Review

Due to the circumstances, I’m reading more than ever before. With that being said, I seldom come across a book that I would consider to be life-changing. The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down by Haemin Sunim is one of those exceptions and I’m excited some insights that I gained from his book with you.

What is the book about?

There’s so much that I love about this book, but I’ll start with how applicable it is to everyone, from teenagers to adults. The chapters are broken down into the following topics:

  • Rest
  • Mindfulness
  • Passion
  • Relationships
  • Love
  • Life
  • The Future
  • Spirituality

Sunim writes with great depth, yet the words are easy to follow and understand. I imagine this will be one of those books where I gain new insights from each time I read it.

Noteworthy Quotes:

I had to use great restraint in narrowing this list down because there are so many great nuggets of wisdom in this book:


The title of this book is so relevant to the slowed pace of life we are all experiencing at this time. While inconvenient, I believe we can do great things during this pandemic if we take time to gain awareness, to rest, and to practice gratitude. You can find this book and all the other great books that I recommend here.
