Aoife McElwain

Aoife McElwain is a food writer for The Irish Times, a freelance food stylist, a creative events producer, and host of the Sing Along Social. She is also the author of Slow at Work: How to Work Less, Achieve More and Regain Your Balance in an Always-On World (published with Gill Books in January 2018). She wrote this book as a way of recovering from her own personal experience with burnout. To figure out if it was possible to cultivate a more sustainable approach to work, she studied topics including procrastination, the imposter syndrome, gut health, energy and recovery time, and interviewed a lot of busy people along the way. Through writing the book she has begun to learn the importance of knowing when to go fast and when to go slow.
