Silencio


It's not easy to find quietness. There can be noise all around us. Noise that is external to us. Noise that we can't stop.There can also be noise that is internal to use. Noise that keeps our mind ticking over, noise that keeps our body moving.

Finding quietness can be an important part of self care. Quietening the world around us might mean going to a different place than we would usually go to. It can mean finding a spot away from others, away from the distractions and away from the interferences that stop us from being calm and focused inwardly. That in fact may be the easier part.

Quietening our inner voices can be much harder. The inner voice reminding us of what we need to do. The inner voice that judges us. The inner voice that commentates on our lives.The inner voice that never settles, never leaves. It takes quite a bit of effort to take charge of this voice. To quieten it, to let it be, to ignore the messages. Knowing you can come back to them later, the important ones anyway.

Quiet times can be times when we recharge, when we privilege ourselves, when we focus on ourselves alone. When we let the rest of the world go by. When we don't allow distractions to take over our day.

We may not get hours of quiet time. It just may not be possible to do that. Particularly if we have family responsibilities. But we can privilege some quiet time - even a few minutes here and there. We can notice the opportunity and grab it. We can take it and work out how to extend it.

Quiet time is essential for self care. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of the busy lives we lead. Getting a chance to calm ourselves, to stop thinking, to take time out.
