Lives are busy, chaotic. There is always noise. Even while sitting alone at home, there is often noise... Noise of the mind as our thoughts run here and there, thinking of all that we have to do, all we have done, mistakes, worries, heaviness. We need some silence in this busy life. We need stillness. Even just a little. Silence, quieting the mind, settling in to focus simply on BEING.... Challenge yourself to find a little quiet time each day. Photo credit: Mine

yes, i do. thankfully..... when i teach, i don't get as much relaxing.... i TRY to attend 3 classes a week as a student. but that isn't always possible. i teach between 8-10 classes a week, usually.... this week, only 7.... so i need to really try hard to get to ha studio at least 3 times, hopefully 4!

This is the noisiest place I ever lived. There is no quiet time. We are near the tracks and the trains run through often. The whistles are very loud and the cars shake the house. Planes are going over pretty regularly as we are not far from a small airport. I hear dogs barking, neighbors yelling, donkeys braying, cows mooing and traffic.
I agree. My quiet time usually consists of some youtube videos from older music and that usually takes me to a place where I won't look at the clock and can mentally check out for a couple of hours and it lowers my stress level. Right now I'm listening to Cat's in The Cradle......its my quiet time.
