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

  2. Be mindful and aware of your thoughts, feelings, body, and enjoy 5 minutes of silence

I've been known to shout at myself if I'm not going as fast as I want to - but not today.

Damian B encouraged this.

Damian B 5 minutes of silence Challenge

Contributorgold Damian B 1/7 (found it relaxing eventually, easy to switch yourself but hard to get absolute silence and so every little noise around you is picked up and actually that was quite stressful)

This was the problem I had when I first tried "zen" meditation. Ugh! Now I meditate and let it all flow in and out. I swear I would fixate on everything and inevitably get almost cranky:)
