Two weeks of deprivation and I thought I’d try being mindful in silence instead.
10. Sit Silently
When was the last time you just sat down in complete silence with no distractions? For the average person, this is probably a rare occurrence.
Sitting silently can help you reflect on your life and what’s going on in the world around you. It can also help you relax, destress, and clear your mind.
Daily challenge: Every day or as much as you would like, try to sit down for anywhere from 10-30 minutes with no distractions whatsoever.
During that 30 minutes, I’ll empty my mind of all chatter. And simply sit silent and amongst silence. It’ll be hard since the mind is predisposed to chattering thoughts.
Now that’ll be a challenge.
In the meanwhile, I’ll start beering again. Still no sugar, no coffee.
