I just read an article on silence. It was about how the world is getting louder these days and it's taking a toll on our health. This article shows you how you can find peace and quiet for mind, body and soul. You can read it here: article on noise pollution and silence.
The bottom line to the article is that silence can connect us to each other. It also actually helps to better connect to ourselves. When we allow for silence and pauses in conversation, we can actually reflect on what was being said instead of just reacting.
When we have quiet space around us, it allows for our creativity to flow and for our soul to speak to us. Creating quiet in your life is like an artist taking a blank canvas and sitting in front of it contemplating on what to create. Listen to what wants to be created within you.
Suggestions for finding silence:
1. Turn off your car radio.
2. Walk without listening to music.
3. Do chores in silence.
4. Close your eyes for 5 minutes and just breathe in silence.
5. Go to a quiet museum and just reflect on what you're experiencing.
