As an introvert -- duh. I'm being facetious but in all seriousness everybody should find some quiet time each day to get away, decompress and mentally work out whatever is slowing you down. Introverted intuition is beneficial to everyone, even extroverts.
I agree. I'm generally outgoing and extroverted, but when something is bugging me or when I'm stressed out I find that the best remedy is just being alone. I wonder what all of those open office plan workers are thinking about these ideas. I would feel trapped working in a place like that.
I'm glad that you enjoyed the Article.
I think everyone should adopt this. While it's not exactly meditation, it's an important aspect of daily life: being able to sit and process and wonder, without the constant distractions of technology.
Meditation, on the other hand, is a level deeper – but equally (or arguably more) important. Meditation is focusing on one single thing – the breath – and allowing thoughts to arise while at the same time not being consumed or distracted by them. A bit of a different technique, but it pays huge dividends in your life if you do a little bit every day.
I guess you're right. I'd argue that sitting and doing nothing is a precursor to meditation. Like climbing a ladder, a few rungs below but still in the right direction.
I'm glad that you enjoyed the article. Thanks for reading.
Could not agree more. I'm no expert on meditation, but there are times when my over-stretched mind hungers for sit-and-think time more than it yearns for sleep.
One of my favorite things when I was younger was rising my bike home from my pizza job late at night. It was downtown and I had to take a train to get all the way home. That's my favorite sit-and-think time.
