10 MINUTES-A-DAY SELF-CARE THERAPHY
When is the last time you did absolutely nothing for 10 whole minutes? Not texting, talking, flipping through your cellphone or even thinking?
Mindfulness expert describes the transformative power of doing just that:
Refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day, simply by being silent, mindful and experiencing the present can give a transformative peace to your mind, healing it in the process.
With so much noise around us, from traffic to overhead music in stores, it is important that we consider the impact it is having on our brains. Silence can be a powerful thing, and taking time to simply enjoy the moment is a blessing.
A mind and body expert remarks:
‘Silence gives more strength to my body and mind. It teaches me the importance of shaping my thinking. Silence teaches me to be in my body. It inspires me to see how people display great beauty. Silence teaches me that space helps me face hard times; that love can be simple. Silence teaches me a deeper truth than words ever could. Silence helps me learn how my body can calm my troubled mind. Silence teaches me that simplicity and joy are close companions’.
Here’s the deal:
Sit in silence 10 minutes a day and feel the truth in your heart. Take time each day to notice your thoughts and let go of thoughts that don’t serve you. The less you see and hear, the more settled your mind can become. Do something in silence with someone you love. It will be awkward at first but eventually you will see what it means just to be silent in someone presence.
Silence is a powerful self-care strategy. It calms your mind, and that translates to a super confident body. It brings you a peace. And when you’re at peace with yourself, it will reflect on your work and people around you.
