For most of us, sitting when we could be doing something constructive may seem a little boring, but that’s the idea about spending time on our own.
Just a few minutes a day, gives us time to think and be at one with ourselves. I usually take quiet time to evaluate my life and what’s happening in it, so that I can make any changes I need to make.
What are the advantages of quiet time?
Quiet time helps us release tension, think about things in the peace and quiet. It may help us let go of responses to stress and may help us to concentrate on ourselves. It may also help us to think about our lives moving forward, giving us a different perspective on things.
Quiet time allows to us think about any changes we want to make. It may help us think about things on a subconscious level, bringing those thoughts into our conscious mind, so we can deal with those.
Unfortunately, we’re not always consciously aware of the mental clutter that goes on inside our head. Those are the thoughts that we have no control over that play out in our everyday lives.
Quiet time helps us dig deep within us so that we may achieve inner peace. That time may also help us think about a change of pace and a change of attitude, so that we can think about our own needs.
It can also helps us to learn to channel our energies into peaceful thoughts, helping us let go of the mental clutter. When the mind is clear, we will make better judgments. When we make better judgments, we will go on to make better decisions.
Quiet time can help us become aware of our own spirituality and in turn that allows us to live with more peace in our lives.
