Two Minutes of Silence and SolitudeIMG_5145

Take it. I recommend mornings. Set a stopwatch on that fancy smartphone of yours. Take 2 minutes to breathe, to be with yourself, to notice the internal starting note of your day, and to bask in a quiet moment for yourself where the to-do lists and the needs of others are on the shelf momentarily. Surprisingly, it can be a powerful reset button for one’s nervous system. And maybe two will lead to 5 or 10 or 20 some day, but no pressure. Two is oceans more than none.
