Quiet the Mind 'Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.' - Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati
Today we are challenged more than ever from the noisy environment around us. When you stop and listen to your life, you’ll notice that you are surrounded by noise all the time. A computer humming, television sounds, phones ringing, people traffic, and sirens. Noise constantly bombards us and when there is too much auditory stress in our environment we end up shutting down part of our senses just to cope.
If there is no peace and quiet in our daily life, how can we feel relaxed and clear-headed? We aren't designed to sustain this kind of continual interference - our wellbeing, bodies and brains need a rest from this on-going noise and activity.
Why Turn Down The Noise?
There are many benefits to turning down the noise in your life. Peace and quiet soothes the psyche and alleviates excessive thinking. With peace and quiet, your thinking will slow down and your body, particularly your nervous system, shifts to a more balanced state that allows your fight-or-flight system to rest. Your body absorbs and processes sound which takes energy and that is why many people feel exhausted after spending time in busy shopping malls or crowds of people. Enjoying more peace and quiet means that you will have more energy and feel less tired.
Here are a few tips to help you to get started immediately:
If you consciously turn down the noise and integrate some time for peace and quiet throughout the day, you will enjoy mental and emotional calm that will free up your mind, enable you to make better decisions and choices and practice mindfulness. This will have dramatic improvements on many aspects of your life.
