Taking time out of every day, even if for only 5 minutes, is a necessary and important thing to do to give your body, mind, and spirit quiet rest. 15 minutes is a great goal!
One of the best daily habits you can develop is to carve out a set period of time to just be still, and meditate on what’s most important in life.
King Solomon wisely said, there is a time for everything under the sun. Does your everything include one of the most important things you can do every day – reading and peaceful reflection?
We now live in a world where most of us are going gang busters from the minute we wake up, especially if we have a family. It’s very important to have some time out to be quiet. Quiet time is something most people are aware of, but few are actually doing it consistently. It’s not that they don’t have the time, everyone can find fifteen minutes a day, they just don’t make the time.
Some Benefits of Quiet Time
- Inspiration – Quietness helps find answers to situations, challenges.
- Meditation – We typically “hear” from God most effectively when we are still.
- Recharges and Refreshes – Critical if you work in a very stressed environment.
“Success comes from a series of good decisions made over time while failure comes from a series of poor decisions made over time.” -Jim Rohn
If you want to make sensible life-planning decisions, the kind of decisions that allow you to be the whole person you were created to be, you need quiet time to think and process the things going on in your life.
