Quiet Time

I sometimes wonder what topic is going to come up several times, in a short period of time, 
prompting me to send a newsletter?

Generally, I find that I am explaining or describing a concept or exercise or other tool multiple times and it gets my attention for a newsletter theme.
(And that tends to coincide with my plan of
quarterly newsletters!)

But this time was different!  I heard myself bemoaning the busy holiday season and rapid end of the year. and complaining about how fast time is going. 

And then this article showed up in
the Harvard Business Review
'The Busier You Are, the More You Need Quiet Time'

4 Practical Tips from the Article
(**Sari's practical comments )

Punctuate meetings with five minutes of quiet time
**Or you can combine a few moments of silence with a few stretches to open your posture and a few purposeful breaths to help bring you to the present time.  

Take a silent afternoon in nature
**If a whole afternoon off or silent seems overwhelming, try to spend a little time outside every day.  Make sure to be aware of your breath while outdoors.

Go on a media fast
**This sounds helpful, but kind of extreme. What if you set up a few time slots with no media? And maybe set timers to limit time spent in media diversions? And get outside, marvel at the beauty of your produce as you prepare a meal, spend time with loved ones!

Try a meditation retreat
**If you have the luxury of participating in a guided retreat, that's Wonderful!  But a retreat can also be an hour away from the demands of the day. 

I want to be present to enjoy this season, embracing it with both enthusiasm and a sense of ease. And I wish the same for you and yours.

These highlights from the article sound a lot like the benefits of a Craniosacral Therapy session:

Get Beyond the Noise

Schedule structured periods of silence**
to restore our nervous systems, help with energy and condition our minds
**slowing and stillness promote silence

*Quiet the outer and inner chatter

*Take a break from having to think what to say
