Constant activity and distractions leave us depleted of energy, direction, and balance. Just attempting to meet all of the demands in our lives is a challenge so we don’t make time for quiet reflection. As a result, we run on auto pilot without the insight that comes with taking time to pause, reflect, dream, plan, and simply be. We don’t spend time on the right things—our life’s priorities.
Taking time out to reflect and rejuvenate can help us to see the big picture, learn from past mistakes, spark new ideas, focus on the things in our lives that are going right, and be happier.
How do you find quiet time away from the crazy pace of life? Here are a few ideas to get you started. Hopefully, one or two will work for you and you will find a calmer, more inspired life through taking time out.
