You Have The Right to Remain Silent
By Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino

Have you ever started with a goal only to find 5 days later it is tough to stick to and you are the hamster back on the wheel and haven’t made the change?

Here are three common "resolutions" that by day 7 are broken.

1. “I am going to exercise 30 minutes each day.”
2. “I am going to write a daily blog.”
3. “I am going to quit smoking.”

How do you effect change and create a good habit? How do you toss out an old habit?

For most, the problem lies with time and attention. Too much time on other things and not enough attention on the things you need to focus on.

So for today I’d like empower you with the right to remain silent!!

My guess is for many of you, including me, taking ten minutes or even twenty minutes of silent reflection can be a bit uncomfortable and feels maybe a bit self-indulgent.

However you have the right to remain silent!

Silence can sometimes be uncomfortable because without distractions you feel what you are feeling and think what you are thinking and sometimes you don’t want to.

So, now that the discomfort has set in, you know you are on the right track. How you move forward with discomfort is important. That's your gem. It's a lot easier to avoid feeling uncomfortable than it is to deal with it. For me, ten to twenty minutes per day is the key.

If you just make a promise to stick with ten minutes a day dedicated to silence, the ripple can make a major difference. That's a habit worth making!

Ten minutes a day, maybe even twenty dedicated to self care is a wonderful goal.

Just think how much better our day can be if we all took time each day to show appreciation for ourselves. Filling up 'us' allows us to enjoy others. It's a great first step to lasting change!
