Silence Really Is Golden

Life is crazy. It's also really loud. Think about it, typically we listen to music or podcasts in our cars, are talking to people throughout the day, watch TV, listen to crying babies on the subway, check the latest YouTube videos, etc etc etc. Yesterday, on my traffic-y drive home, I was so frustrated with the same old songs on the radio and out of frustration I hit the power button. 


It was so unfamiliar and calming that I wanted to share it with you. Sitting there with my thoughts was one of the most relaxing and present things I could have done in that moment. It gave me energy to get through the rest of my busy day. Next time you hear a song that you're even a little bit sick of on the radio, or you automatically go to turn on the TV, opt to shut it off completely. It's worth your sanity.
