Is your breakfast time loud? If so, consider enjoying more silence in the morning as you eat.
The Doctors note, "Have a silent breakfast for mental clarity." Dr. Ian Smith explains eating in silence, which is an ancient practice, can be adapted to our modern lives.
He suggests to simply eat your food quietly and deal with whatever thoughts you might be having. He says this practice can help reconnect you to your mind and body and will allow you to begin the day with purpose, calmness, and gratitude. A silent breakfast can also help to lower your cortisol levels and blood pressure.
The simple rules of a silent breakfast include:
- No phones or devices
- No TV or tablets on in the background
- No multitasking
Try it on your own, or even get the entire family to do it a few times a week, the silent start to your morning just might help you feel more grounded and peaceful.
