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.
“I found this to be quite challenging. Even when I am alone I talk to myself or start singing. I wasn't aware I did this so much until taking this challenge.”

Krysta W Update from yesterday; Day 1. It was quite relaxing and helped me to sort out some issues that I was having. We really should sit back and just watch how our surroundings are constantly moving.
