How does silence make you feel? If you’re like many people, it makes you uncomfortable. We’re so used to a noisy world that we often grow accustomed to background noise. However, silence is often the best key to a calmer life. Let’s talk about the benefits of spending time in silence and getting comfortable with it.
As much as you may enjoy having music constantly playing in the background or the TV always on, that constant noise can wear on you. Even if you don’t realize it, your brain is working extra hard to process that noise along with your current task. Yes, it’s okay to allow yourself that music or TV or even conversation with others while performing some tasks and duties. However, you want to make sure you are also setting aside special “quiet time” for yourself throughout the day.
Setting aside time to embrace the silence and enjoy peace and quiet will help your mind find a calm, undistracted state of being. When you create this, you give your brain and body time to rest and reset. After the quiet time, you will feel rested and your brain will be ready to take on new challenges.
Oftentimes, the stress and noise of our everyday activities can fog our brains. Setting aside a time during your day – even 5 minutes – of quiet reflection will help to clear your mind and organize your thoughts. Meditation will also benefit you in this area.
Marinating in quiet reflection time also allows you to practice mindfulness. When you are mindful, you can tune into yourself and what you need, while being intentional with your time and thoughts. This is extremely helpful when it comes to lowering stress levels and achieving mental clarity.
Sitting and relaxing in complete silence does amazing things for your mind and body. You can really get in tune with your thoughts, emotions, and intentions. It may be uncomfortable at first. but with practice, you will find that embracing the silence leads you to deeply reconnect with yourself.
