Create Your Own Stillness and Peace this Holiday Season

Be still and know that I am God. -Psalms 46:10
Five Ways to Create Stillness and Peace

  1. Focus more on the gift of presence than the gift of presents—we need far more connectedness in our lives and far less “stuff.”
  2. Create prayer and/or meditation time—just ten minutes can calm body and soul.
  3. Reduce noise—replace the blare of the TV with soft music . . . or just the welcome sounds of silence.
  4. Stay home—the malls and shopping centers distract us from our true centers.
  5. Rediscover the family meal—experience the gift of sitting together around the table with all technology silenced.
