In reading this month's Town & Country I came across an article that "spoke" to me. And it was ironically titled: Do Not Speak. In our digital charged world, I am not alone in craving peace and quite. This article lists places people pay for just that. Their called digital detox camps as people realize their addiction. It sites the proven benefits of silence from a Duke University study. They found mice that had two hours of silence everyday, had triggered brain cell development. And in a study in the journal of Heart, found that silence had more of a calming effect on breathing and blood pressure than even soothing music.
Enjoy some silence!
