I need more stillness in my life. My moments of productivity, contentment, and happiness are when I am most still. It comes easily in the mornings, when the world is dark and quiet. I struggle with it in the afternoons and evenings when there are so many “demands” for my attention and my mental strength is weakening.

I know there are things I can do to get more stillness. I can get back into the habit of only checking my email twice a day. I can go for walks and meditate and make sure that I turn off the tv or phones while eating. I can “unplug” at night before bed and get back into reading. I can start yoga again.

It is all just figuring out how to set boundaries, to make my time mine, to respect and honor and love and value my own life.
