I have always loved silence for balance, recharge, and a break from our over stimulated world. This article is even more profound, it talks about how silence helps develop our brains, http://www.lifehack.org/377243/science-says-silence-much-more-important-our-brains-than-thought?dgs=1.
There are different ways to have quiet in our lives, to balance the non stop lives that we love.
- instead of raising our voices/making an effort to keep a calm tone
- make time for “me” time, taking a walk in nature, or anything where you can be alone doing something just for you
I have always loved quiet, and I love it even more now that I am a parent, it is so rare. Right now the kids are still sleeping and my husband just went to synagogue, and I get to let my brain roam free.
I fully appreciate my me time,
Make time for you time,
