Hustle and bustle are part of our everyday life. We are constantly living in an environment of noise. Be it the sounds of human activity, mechanical activity or just sounds of nature.
We rarely get time to disconnect, unplug and truly experience quiet. If we do experience it, we are startled and almost afraid of it. If we find ourselves at home, we rush to turn the television on. If we are traveling in a car as a passenger we always need to connect with our devices. If we venture out for a walk, a majority of us need the constant stimulation of music.
In this hectic life and to give us some perspective we must find a few moments to embrace silence.
Quiet is a luxury that costs nothing. We should take a few moments each day to simply sit and think, without the need of any foreground or background noise.
