What does your brain say when the outside influences are silenced?
It is really challenging for most of us to disconnect these days. Are we afraid to miss something. Has it become a habit that we care more about what people think of our posts and our "likes" that it takes precedent over things that matter to your overall life?
“Are you really that indispensable that you can never be disconnected?”
Turns out that answer is no. But the bigger question is "Why does your personal view of yourself depend on the approval of others?"
Why embrace the silence?
I would challenge you to be still and silent for at least 5 minutes every hour. I know that I can get so busy "doing" that I forget to reflect on what I've actually done.
Many people do not like being alone. Some can't handle the silence. It is in the silence that we can hear the chaos between the head and the heart.
Are there things you'd just as soon not deal with that immediately come to mind when the silence begins. If so, that's probably what should be on the top of your to do list the next day. It is in the silence that your inner being can speak to you.
BTW...It's also OK to tell that inner being to shut up when it tells you lies.
