“In a world filled with constant noise and distractions, taking time for silence is a form of self-care that can work wonders for our wellbeing. Not only does silence help with creativity, leading to fresh ideas. But it also helps get rid of the mental clutter and racing thoughts, allowing you to think more clearly and make better decisions. It is also incredibly soothing helping to calm your body and reduce stress levels. I personally love to use silence as an opportunity for introspection. A chance to tune into my thoughts, emotions, and desires to gain a deeper understanding of myself”.
Going a little bit deeper, Beverly gives us 5 simple (not-so-simple) ways to practice the gift of silence.
In her words,
- Start small with just a few minutes a day
- Find a quiet, comfy spot where you won’t be disturbed
- Practice mindful breathing to anchor yourself in the present
- No phones, laptops or TVs allowed (well….)
- Keep a journal nearby to jot down insights
Buttressing her point, Naya tells us that, silence isn’t about erasing all the noise; it’s about creating a peaceful space to connect with yourself. Whether you seek clarity, relaxation, or just a break from the noise, silence is a powerful tool for self-care and personal growth.
