Turn off the TV.Silence the cell phone.Settle into a comfortable seat, close your eyes, and just be.Quiet time - time void of everyday distractions - is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.Wrap yourself in quiet.You can call it meditation if you wish, but you don't have to if that feels too burdensome.The point is to simply be still and quiet with yourself and your thoughts if there are any.It's a priceless practice that can reap you benefits of clarity, calm, and comfort.Be quiet.
