We are “doing” all day long. Our minds are constantly on the go, and we are always trying to keep up with what’s next. One of the best practices that I do, and suggest is to take daily quiet time. In fact, I think it’s best if we do this throughout the day, numerous times.
Get in the habit of putting down what you’re doing, turning off all distractions, and just taking a damn break.
- Implement at least 20 minutes a day of quiet, alone time. Put your electronics away, take deep breaths and just be quiet and still.
- You can do this with a purpose (meditating on a certain topic, prayer, etc.) or you can just let your mind wander.
You might need to actually schedule this in your calendar/planner in order to make it part of your daily routine. Just make sure you take some time to be quiet with your thoughts, every single day, with no interruptions.
