Most of us don't know - or even fear - quiet. A ritual of practising meditative silence is where you abstain from speaking for a set period each day.
Learning to be silent forces you to collect your thoughts, train your mind and helps you decide how you want to proceed into the day. It can bring inner peace and make you a better listener.
The rule is to keep complete silence for 60- minutes with no outside distractions. Keep a pen and journal at hand and a book you've meant to read for a while.
Break the hour up into three segments:
Break the first 30 minutes of complete silence up into 10-minute sets:
During the second part of complete silence, start reading a book that teaches you new things or improves you.
Reading this way will allow for deeper thought and analysis and increase your short-term memory.
The last 10 minutes of silence is a grounding process. Use it for self-reflection.
The objective is to be present and pay attention to your emotions and what those feelings mean to you. This allows you to mindfully choose to stay out of negativity.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
