In a chaotic, noisy world full of shiny distractions that feed off our attention, we need moments of peace and quiet.

Just you and your thoughts.

No gadgets.

No talking.

No activity.

Don’t be afraid of the silence, although it can feel strange at first.

Just sit and breathe and ponder.

What you do in those moments is up to you.

You can visualise your worries slipping away.

You can list everything that you’re grateful for.

You can contemplate possible solutions to the challenges that you’re facing.

You can pray.

It will take discipline.

Discipline to make the time.

Discipline to not get distracted.

But in those moments will come the greatest clarity.

The deepest thoughts.

The path ahead.

It may be only a moment of peace and quiet, but that moment could change everything.
