It’s been a really busy week. It’s a good busy and I’d rather have that than not busy. At the same time it’s always important to take a bit of time and step away from the hustle and bustle. I took the time to take a brisk walk and do some exercise. It helped a lot.

As a young boy growing up my father and mother did a wonderful job of introducing me to the out of doors. We spent many a weekend camping, fishing, and hiking. It was a wonderful time in my life and I still use the lessons today.

Make Some Quiet Time

All of us get busy. At times it seems overwhelming. It certainly can be especially if we forget to take some time for ourselves. With all of the noise and clutter around us it’s important to spend some time with no noise and clutter. I make it a point to get out for a walk most every day. I’ll also plan to get my boat in the water and fish as much as possible. Before you know it, winter will be here and I’ll be looking longingly at my boat standing in the driveway. So grab the poles and let’s go while the going is good.

When was the last time that you took some time to listen to your favorite music, take a long hike, paint a picture, read a book, and just be by yourself with no distractions? It’s important for kids and adults as well.

Young people take time to learn how to value quiet time now. Think about getting away from loud people, loud music, loud life, and be by yourself. If you have access to woods or water take advantage. It’s no wonder that woods and water are the favorite places of many who realize the value of serenity and the value of being alone. It’s o. k. to be by yourself, alone with your thoughts and away from the noise. It’s good to spend time with yourself to recharge your battery and to unclutter your mind. It’s good to go back to the simple, basic things in order to draw strength and understanding for the hard things to come. Take time to recharge. You owe it to yourself.

Enjoy the quiet,
