Finding Times And Places For Thinking
Life has a tendency to get hectic for everyone at times, and no matter what you do for a living or what a typical day in your life is like, there will be times when you simply need to be alone - and even more so, there will be times when you need to get some thinking done. As so much of life is surrounded by a hectic swirl of busyness and business and family and friends and other forms of interaction, many people do not realize how little time they spend thinking in silence until they actually start making the time to do so - but when you start to find times and places for thinking quietly, it will make all the difference in the world. If the reason you feel like life is so busy and non-stop is because of work, there is a good chance that you commute to and from work each day - and if you take this commute in the car, this gives you a perfect time and place for thinking in silence; get into the habit of turning off your radio sometimes, and let your thoughts carry you forward into the day. If you are wanting to enjoy a bit of thinking in silence, another great place where you can do this is on your back patio on a pleasant afternoon - and in fact, this can even be the case if you live in an apartment instead of in a house, as being "separated" from everything can feel the same as being in true silence. And if you need to move around a bit while you are doing your thinking, there is nothing that fits the bill better than a walk - which you can do through your neighborhood or through a park, and you will be able to get your blood flowing and get your thoughts flowing at the same time. Once you begin to make the time to do some thinking in silence, you will soon be surprised to find what a difference this can make in the direction of your everyday life.
