Seek Moments of Stillness

Apr 03, 2024

Think about those moments when everything around you goes quiet. It could be early morning when your house is still fast asleep or late at night. These moments of stillness are critical to soul care. I know you are busy so that these moments may be few and far between.

Quiet moments are so good for us. You get to check in with yourself.
How are you feeling?
What's been on your mind?

It's a time to listen to your thoughts without the world shouting over them. It's a moment to check in with God. When we are still, we can feel more connected to God. It's not about being super religious; it's more like sitting with a friend in silence, not needing to say anything but feeling that connection.

How do you find these moments in a day? Start small. It could be a couple of minutes in the morning, sitting with your coffee, no phone, no TV. Or perhaps it's looking out the window and noticing the sky, the trees, or how the light changes. It's about making a little space for yourself, a quiet corner in your day.

Ready to find a few moments of stillness in your day? It may change how you look at things, offering a fresh breath of peace in the hustle and bustle of life. Let's make space for those quiet moments together and see how they enrich our daily journey.

  1. Set a Daily Quiet Time: Choose a specific time for quiet reflection or meditation each day. It could be early in the morning before the day starts or late in the evening when the day winds down.

  2. Nature Walks: Make it a habit to take short walks in nature, whether it's a park, your backyard, or any green space available. Focus on the sounds, sights, and smells around you.

  3. Mindful Breathing: Incorporate brief mindful breathing exercises into your day. Even a few minutes can help center your thoughts and calm your mind.

  4. Creative Outlet: Engage in a creative activity that allows you to express yourself without judgment. Drawing, writing, gardening, or playing music can be therapeutic and a form of quiet reflection.

  5. Digital Mindfulness: Before you check your phone or email in the morning, take a few moments to breathe deeply and set an intention for your day. This helps start your day with purpose rather than reacting to external demands.
