Most of us cannot stay still, as we were never taught to be at one place and do nothing. We have heard about the benefits of meditation, but start to wiggle if we try it even for a minute.
Our constant need to juggle and multitask has made it impossible to do anything solo. We need a distraction to help us with our main distraction, like listening to music while reading, or watching TV while surfing Twitter.
We try to drown our mind with distractions and noise because we are scared of what will happen when everything stops, no TV, music, internet, phones and everything dead silent.
We could hear ourselves think and we could end up getting introduced to what we really feel, and who we really are. That is scary as hell.
Stillness does not mean lack of motion, but just to be, even if just for a few micro-moments. Even a five-second look at the trees outside and a deep breath can be a micro-vacation.
