‘Sometimes when we just stand still the grace finds us.’
It’s a good idea to seek stillness from time to time; Especially when things get too much, or when you simply wish to find focus and motivation. The constant need of being online 24/7 affects even the best of us. When feeling stressed out from school, work or just normal life-obligations it’s vital to take a step back, and travel in the passenger seat for a while. Unplug and unwind – if only for a couple of hours. You’ll feel recharged and ready to take on the world again.
Benefits from seeking solitude and stillness:
- Being by yourself with no distractions gives you the chance to clear your mind, focus and think more clearly.
- When seeking stillness you allow your brain to think more deeply. You might for example struggle with a challenging task and are seeking good ideas on how to proceed. When you allow your brain to unwind, and think more deeply, you allow your creativity to come alive – which may lead to more creative solutions to your problem.
- Spending time alone gives you an opportunity to get to know yourself. When you spend time with yourself you gain a better understanding of who you are and what you desire in life. You may also come to appreciate other peoples’ companies more after spending some precious time alone.
- It helps you to focus and be more productive. If you have an important task at hand a good idea is to turn off your cell phone, your Internet and your TV. You’ll be amazed at how much more you can get done by disconnecting and not allowing yourself to be distracted.
Good times to seek solitude is to try to sneak some time in early morning; Put the alarm so that you have time to spend 1-2 hours by yourself. Take a walk in nature during lunch break or why not spend 1 hour in the evening, either in nature or by choosing a quiet place where you feel calm and at peace.
