The Beauty of Daily Silence..

In one of my earlier posts called the new normal categorizations of time, I have given my ways of spending time. One of my favorite way of spending time is spending time in solitude (My time). I prefer to stay in a calm place in the home, so that there is enough time to reflect and introspect about various things which get bombarded through the senses.

Thanks to the increase of data by all our mobile service providers and the unlimited access of the internet and “always on” culture, we tend to be distracted, rather allow ourselves to be distracted to the notifications which keep hitting us day in and out. My digital detox is the time, where I kind of unplug myself from the internet and take myself to the era where we had landlines and internet had never reached India.

Life was much more simple and enjoyable in the pre-internet era from an attention span perspective. Nowadays, most of us have very less attention spans, as we are always glued to ” screens” right from the day we open our eyes, till we hit the beds at night, and we start the day again with ” screens”.

I would prefer solitude to being alone, as in solitude, I reflect and do my mental chatter and analysis of my day, or plan for the day ahead. Work something in the head. The adage goes,everything is created twice, once in the head and then the physical manifestation.

I feel that spending time alone with oneself with the thoughts everyday preferably in the early morning or late at night, on these things two things :

  1. Have I learnt something new today? A skill? Added value to anyting?
  2. Have I made someone happy? Helped anyone in the smallest possible way?

I think, these trigger thoughts would help in bringing a calm and wonderful day, making the surroundings and community a cohesive and a great place to be.

Till then, Stay calm and Stay Humble !

  1. Yea, “me time” is very important to stay connected with one’s true self, to stay clear about one’s purpose of life, and remain unfazed by the turmoils like covid-19 happening around in the world. Well said, dear Ethel.


  2. Some lovely points are very relevant to the present situation. Being calm and uncluttered enables us to arrive at sound decisions.
    My way these days is to walk in natural surroundings, breathing and physical exercises. And try my best to remain cheerful 😃
    Thank you and cheers 🍀
