The Sounds of Silence

Our lives are filled with so much information and sound.  It can be so helpful to your wellbeing to simply take a break from the artificial noise of life.  Turn off the sound and listen to the silence or observe your breath.  Go outside and listen to the sounds of nature: the rustle of leaves in the trees or the sounds of the birds.  Spending even 5 minutes in the silence can do wonders for your nervous system.  It also helps to clear your mind so you can think more clearly.  Observe the effect that the silence has on your body.  Feel yourself relax and expand.  It is simple thing that you can do for yourself anytime, anywhere, with no cost, only taking the time to turn off the sound.
