Create some quiet for yourself.

When you create some quiet in your life, you give yourself a gift. And sometimes it’s a gift that’s hard to come by.

Indeed, finding time to take a breath can be one of the most challenging undertakings in your daily life.  And yet, it is also one of the most rejuvenating gifts you can ever give yourself.

So, the question is, how can you create some quiet for yourself in your daily life?

Create some quiet…

In thinking about this. let’s start by reflecting on the holiday season.  Do you notice tany pockets of quiet?  I know that I have.

The volume of e-mail decreases and the phone may ring less. More and more, I notice that people are inclined to unplug and live their moments the old fashioned way.

So, how does that feel to you?  Would you like to be able to create some quiet like that for yourself more often?

Looking ahead…

I know that I feel refreshed, energized, and appreciative of the break that comes in the week before New Year’s Day.  It serves as a reminder that I can give myself the gift of quiet in my life any time that I want to.  All it requires is that I set and maintain some boundaries for myself.

Time boundaries may be something that you need to communicate to others (i.e. when you need to unplug or shut the door and have time to focus) or they may be something that you need to assert internally (i.e. when you limit your on-line time or create and follow through on an exercise regimen).

Either way, time boundaries can help you create some quiet in your life, or create space for whatever your heart desires.  So, as far as gifts go, time boundaries may be just about the best thing going.

How will you give yourself this present, for your present, as you move toward a New Year?
