Do you constantly have a to do list running through your head? Do you wish you get have a moment of peace?
As I’ve shared before, I commute to work and back home each day, so I have to get creative with making the best use I can of the limited time I have.
I try to make the best use I can of my time and listening to podcasts is a great way to do that – it turns otherwise idle time into productive time. However, on that night, I decided to drive in silence.
Because sometimes I just need it. I think we all do.
Our days are so busy that we do and do and do; yet, we don’t take enough time to just be still.
How can I expect to get answers from God if my world is always noisy?
How can I expect to figure things out for myself if my to do list is always running through my head?
So as I rode in silence, I thought about all the ways that I could achieve this silence (that I have always felt was a little elusive).
As I drive to work or on my way back home, I can use the silence to just let my mind wander or to take advantage of creativity that otherwise get might get crowded out.
Here are some other ways to find silence in your busy day:
- While driving
- In the shower
- Before everyone wakes up
- After everyone goes to sleep
- During your lunch break
Do you have any other secrets to getting the silence you need?
