Feeling Overwhelmed All the Time?

Aug 11, 2023 / General     

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the pressures and busyness of life, you’re not alone. And if you aren’t careful, those things can lead you to a searing desert where joy evaporates. But solitude and silence are an oasis that can help you gain perspective in at least five ways. First, solitude and silence can make you feel helpless and help you realize you’re not in control of so many things in life. And when you realize that, a sense of freedom comes with it.  Second, solitude and silence force you to address issues you’d rather avoid. And when the root cause of many of your problems becomes clearer, they can then be clearly addressed. Here are more of my thoughts on Why Solitude and Silence Are So Important.
