A silent update…

I learned a few things this week about silence and how it is most effective for me. These thoughts are in the order they came to me throughout the week:

  1. Silence is difficult to come by! Plan it into the day or it will not happen.
  2. My biggest obstacle: my own mindset. “I don’t have time for this!”
  3. Close your eyes and set a timer; do not look at the clock.
  4. My typical thoughts during silence: my to-do list, my writing and memories that seemingly crept out of nowhere.
  5. For most effective mindful silence, concentrate on breathing.
  6. Five minutes really isn’t long enough. This week I think I’ll make it seven…

Who knew I’d begin to crave this time? Wow.
