Laura S 1/7 - not really silence, as I was listening to the sounds of my surroundings during my walk today.
We live in a society of go-go-go, fast-fast-fast, now-now-now! STOP! Commit to 5 minutes of silence per day for one week. Anytime of the day (morning, lunch break, night, driving, etc). Turn off the TV, the lap top, the radio, the ipads, the cell phone, etc. Allow yourself 5 minutes of silence. Read, look out the window, sew, stretch, or do nothing. Clear your mind, if only for 5 minutes.
5 minutes of silence Challenge rules
- Dedicate 5 minutes of silence a day for 7 days or one week.
- Be mindful and aware of your thoughts, feelings, body, and enjoy 5 minutes of silence
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.

Jenn B 2/7
I actually just had an office full of young teenage boys that were acting up in the classroom and had to be removed. I asked them all to just sit quietly for 5 minutes. No giggling, no wiggling, no cell phones, no peeking at each other.....just sit quietly. They calmed down and we could all have a calm, civil conversation. Doesn't always work with teenages, but today it did lol :o)
