In every person’s life there is pause. There is the calm before the storm. There are hills and valleys. There is chaos and time for rest.

How you interpret moments of perceive stillness can speak volumes of how you live your every day.

Do you fill silence with the murmur of the television?

Do you escape non-busyness with mindless games and mindlessly surfing the internet?

Do you satisfy your craving for drama with reality TV, picking fights with loved ones, or worrying and overthinking?

Do you regard calm as unease?

Do you try to erase uncomfortable quiet with food, online shopping or gambling?

If you said, “Yes” to any of these, scroll through our list of top posts this week. Instead of filling your mind with harmful and self-sabotaging activities, soak up the words of our bloggers who will guide you through everything from growing into your best self to attracting and cultivating your best relationship.
