Being silent at times is very good for us. It calms our nervous systems down. Calms the mind. Soothes the soul. Helps us to connect to our higher power. After a busy day with my second graders I really need that time. If I get it, I sleep much better at night.
How can we fit in times to be silent and be still in our busy lives? Here are a few suggestions:
- If you commute, turn off the car stereo once in a while
- Sit and meditate during work and lunch breaks
- Set up times at home when you intend to be quiet and then communicate with family members not to interrupt you
- Take a walk without your music
- Spend time outdoors alone
- Go on a silent retreat
- Unplug: turn off phones, computers, all electronics!
When you do emerge from your time of silence you will be much more refreshed and have more to give. You will be more centered and will sleep better at night.
