How 20 minutes of alone time with your wandering mind can fill your life with more calm and less anxiety...
Take a minute and inventory your day. If you’re like most of us, you wake up and reach for your phone. You might have a quick second for breakfast between getting the kids ready and off to school, and then it’s time for a commute that’s never fun (unless you’re a glutton for pain). And that’s just the start. From the moment you leave your house until you go to bed, you’re probably bombarded with emails, notifications, texts, memes, social media, parent teacher conferences, and lots of caffeine just to keep up.
The world moves fast. And while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, our brains aren’t wired to keep up with the constant escalating white noise that we’re served on a daily basis. It doesn’t just leave us feeling empty and depleted at the end of the day — it’s taking a toll on our health. Anxiety and depression rates underscore our newfound inability to create distance and space from the constant noise in our lives.
