Earlier today, I was waiting outside a local coffee shop to visit with a friend when it hit me that it was so noisy in the area. Then, as happens sometimes, the idea of a blog post hit me with a smack on the forehead. When that happens, I send myself a text so I don’t forget the idea.
So while I was sitting down to write this post, I thought it would be a good idea to do a little research about the state of our world and the noise around us.
I didn’t get far in my research before I saw this video. If you don’t open it, you’ll be missing out on a fantastic video. So, do open it, watch it, and learn some interesting facts about the noise pollution crisis we are all facing.
Also, as I was preparing for this post, I had a shortlist of things you could do to get away from the noise, but the video covers that as well, so I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here.
As you can see, I’m telling you, you’ve got to watch the video.
Because In a World Filled with Noise
If you’re one of those people who has a hard time sitting in silence, ask yourself, what in your life are you specifically trying to avoid?
Sometimes, some of us, myself included, find ways to keep noise around so we don’t have to sit in silence with thoughts we want to avoid.
Then some spend too much time in thought, with a loop of the same negative sequence (noise) playing repeatedly. That’s a whole different kind of noise.
If you’re one of those, yip, I’ve been there too!
Then it’s essential to navigate your way out of the loop and find a place of silence. This is where the practice of meditation can come in handy.
Let me know how you like the video, as I would love to hear your thoughts.
