Shut Up! (Seriously)
How silence can improve your day.
Ever feel overwhelmed by the nonstop bombardment of your senses that is life in the 21st century? There’s an easy way to deal: Be quiet. Silence offers opportunities for contemplation, reflection, and “resetting.” Silent retreats — which are available locally at Anam Cara Meditation Foundation in Armonk, the Garrison Institute in Garrison, and other locations — vary in format and focus, and, research shows, can have a positive effect on wellbeing, raising serotonin and dopamine levels substantially.
Think about it — but don’t say anything.
