During my morning coffee date with Elmo, I very much enjoyed listening to the silence.

Usually the music has already started and the others are making noise, but this morning was absolutely nothing. Even the parrot had yet to start her adorable beeping, whistling, mobile imitating soundtrack.

There was simply silence.

If you doing a solo lockdown then you probably can control the noise around you but if you have roommates, family, pets or neighbours with thin walls, it will take some logistics to do today’s challenge of creating silence.

You can use this time for meditation, deep breathing or reflection… just don’t have any sounds around you.

This will be very difficult for some of you. But just try and see if a moment of silence brings you closer to serenity.
