Quiet is Good for the Soul

Quietness is sometimes good for you.  It helps you think and clear your head. It's a retreat away from the distractions of everyday life.

In our busy society, it's easy to think of quietness as something boring, but it's unhealthy to not take mental and physical breaks. Self-care is important. It's necessary to take a break for yourself and recharge.

One of my favorite ways is spending time out in nature. Even if it's just for a little bit, it's nice to have the time and space to reflect away from my daily habit.

On other days, I also like to sit quietly drinking a cup of coffee in the morning as I mentally wake up, reflect, and plan out my day.

There are many ways to give yourself some quiet time. You can be as creative as you want. A friend of mine likes to drive her daily commute with the radio turned off to give herself some quiet reflection time.

So if you can, challenge yourself to give yourself a little more quiet time today, tomorrow, this week, next week, and so on.
