Life in the modern world is quite complex. We overwork and overdo it all the time. We never seem to make enough time for rest. Instead, we keep adding more stuff to our already overloaded schedules. This has taken a toll on our overall health and well-being. It has also created more tension and stress for us than ever. Further, our mental health and well-being are suffering because of our overloaded minds. There just does not seem to be enough hours in a day to relax and enjoy life. We are always going and doing.
This full-on lifestyle can also harm our relationships. We may end up being intentionally mean or even abusive to others, especially those closest to us. This is because unless we live in the present and pause before acting and speaking, especially if we feel frustrated, angry, hungry, or tired, we may do and say things we will later regret. This can destroy our closest relationships and cause undue tension in our lives. In this e-book, I will focus on some of the important benefits of living in the present and cultivating silence daily. I will argue that you should try to create a time for solitude at least once a day by pausing and focusing on your breath. This is where your true essence lies.
