Neuroscientists have found that those who dedicate themselves to more quiet time develop a much greater capacity for empathy and deep thought. This is because these skills require a slower variety of thought processes in order to develop. Therefore, by focusing on making time to be alone with your thoughts you can become a better parent, sibling, partner, and friend!
This type of exercise is especially relevant to those in recovery. Creating temporary physical and mental space away from your immediate life allows for reflection on the past, present, and future. Being a bit removed from the situation makes this a good time to assess who you truly are as a person and how you have been acting and makes it easier to see what might need to change in your life.
Tonight, we talk about Quiet Time.
