Find an inner silent place and visit there often
Day 56/366 days Towards Self-Mastery. Mood: mellow
The most difficult aspect of finding that place of inner silence is dealing with the "monkey mind".
A mind full of chatter doesn't give you much space to rest into considering your own personal needs and how you might satisfy them as well as meeting all your other priorities.
For me at least, finding that silent place was about understanding that my monkey mind was a mind that was trying to figure things out. Unfinished business from the passed that left me with lots of unanswered questions.
