"Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech.” - Plutarch

Quiet Day, also known as National Don't Utter a Word Day, is observed annually on February 25th.

Today is the day to lower the noise level. Being quiet reduces your stress, it originally started as a day in the Anglican church to focus on special devotions, meditations, and instructions. In today’s technological society, it’s also the day to reduce the use of capital letters and punctuation.

the quieter you become the more you are able to hear.


How to observe Quiet Day

Eat in silence: Mindful eating helps you enjoy your food more, prevents overeating because you are tuned in to your body’s satiety signals, and allows your body to metabolize food more efficiently.

At work, take advantage of a quiet room.  Many companies have developed quiet spaces where employees can take a moment or two during the working day to relax, have a break, meditate, pray or simply ‘take stock’ without the distractions and interruptions of office life.

Get out into nature:  Taking a walk along a park path or country road early in the morning or before bed can bring focus and serenity to one’s mind.  There is nothing as peaceful as walking through our bush property on a snow, winter day.

Quiet people have the loudest minds.
