Be Silent

There are days when all you want to do is curl up in a ball and retreat. Find a dark, quiet room and have a long lie down. Shut out the noise, the demands, the requests and find rest.
But more often than not this idea of rest is elusive. It escapes us….slips through our fingers.
If I am serious about finding rest in the busyness I need to be prepared to do the following:
Get to bed early
Sleep
Sit down for five minutes when I have a coffee or cup of tea
Eat well, snack less
Play my favourite music and sing along
Walk, stretch, exercise my body
Read or listen to something encouraging
Find a space of my own to read, reflect, journal, pray each day
Be still
Be silent
