Be Still

posted by Alex Blackwell

Every now and then it’s a good idea to slow down, put life on hold and be still.

In the stillness, you can…
– hear yourself think
– notice the sound of the wind
– feel your heart beat
– daydream again
– pray

When you have too many things to do, be still for a moment and consider the most important task to do – not the one that’s most urgent.

In the stillness, you can…
– allow peace to cover you
– clear you mind
– meditate
– do nothing
– simply breathe

When you want to end a relationship, be still for a moment and listen to your inner wisdom before taking the next step.

You can find stillness wherever you choose by…
– scheduling time everyday
– finding a place that’s comfortable
– giving yourself time
– quieting your mind
– being present in the moment

When anxiety feels like it choking your spirit, be still for a moment and let the fears pass over you like clouds in the sky.

In the stillness, you can…
– come back to yourself
– refresh your soul
– make a wish
– rest
– feel alive once again
