Affirmation for August 1, 2011: True Silence

True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.- William Penn
Thought of the Day:
Do you regularly give your mind true silence? In today's world, it's so easy to have that switch in your head constantly turned on, while in your mind, thoughts whirr and wizz in and out. 
If you are feeling an overwhelming feeling of stress or anxiety, try escaping to a quiet place today, and for 5 minutes, turn that switch off. Do this several times throughout the day, and give your mind the power nap it needs to recharge.
Have a shhhhhhh day...
