Quiet


source

Where I work there is always noise like the phones ringing, co-workers laughing, technicians complaining, the sound of air guns coming through the door of the shop (that gets opened at least 600 times a day). Now that I’ve painted you that picture I just want to say I absolutely love my quiet time.

I like my quiet time in varieties though. I’ll admit sometimes quiet time isn’t quiet at all, I’ll listen to some jazz or even a yoga station on Spotify. While I’m soaking up my quiet time I like to read, do some yoga, try out a new recipe, or sit back and binge watch Netflix. I’m also really getting into walking/running lately. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t run for miles, truth be known in an hours workout I probably only run about 8 minutes. I love all of the fresh air and beautiful spring scenery.

    I love the quiet! Huge fan. My 3 kids are making constant noise. Although, I do listen to music to block out other noise. Still, it’s quieter than my kids, so I think it counts.

  2. Nice topic. I crave quiet and stillness, too. Maybe that’s just my age….LOL….but huste and bustile is highly overrated. Sounds like some of your quiet time is just decompressing. That’s good, too. I like to watch funny shows on TV to decompress. Anyhoo…..you make some very good points…and I’m so happy I “stopped” the crazy long enough to enjoy your post. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love quiet time but living in NYC it is few and far between. I mostly only get it at nap time.

    I do like some quiet time too. I do still get it when everyone’s gone for the day, but that’s quickly coming to an end.

    I love the quiet too but with a house full of loud kids, that rarely happens.

  14. Liz Mays says:

    There’s something about being outside which is completely restorative. As far as shhhh, I think I have silence in my day at least 90% of the time and I love it!

    There is never a dull moment in this house and for that, I never have quiet time :).

  17. My early mornings and late nights reading (maybe with a glass of wine) before the kid gets up or after he goes to bed…. Ahhh those times are the best!

  18. I don’t get nearly enough quiet time. I’m working on it though. I love listening to jazz while reading a good book.
