As a teacher my days are anything but quiet. I usually have people wanting/needing my attention all over the place and rarely get a quiet moment alone. That is why when I get home I need some quiet time. I thing everyone should have a little time carved out in their day to just relax, clear their minds and enjoy the silence. It will make your life more peaceful and your enjoyable. It can be time to sit down and have a cup of tea (and maybe a cookie), read a book, or just sit.
Even if you can only find a couple of minutes, take the time today to enjoy the quiet.
