    Between 6 And 8 O'clock

    I can tolerate being with others throughout the day, as long as I don't have to talk much. But I much prefer having bouts of "people-time" within my normal quiet time, if it's an option. Today, I was with my father while he was working on a family members car, and I'd help out...

    Real Quiet Time

    I like having time to myself but that's not the kind of quiet time I'm talking about.  I want to go somewhere where there is no unnatural noise.  No humming of electrical appliances or florescent lights.  No clicking of the frig or furnace turning on & off...

    Washing of hands and feet,the face and eyes , the mat picked up and the mobile put in silence mode,with an alarm for fifteen minutes. Preparations done, you walk into that room, cast a look around and go to the special spot , lay out the mat , sit with legs crossed beneath you...

    Great Time to Read a Book

    I enjoy quite time and it is a great time to read a book.  I always have to be doing something because I get bored really easy.  There are times my husband will turn up his music and I wish he would turn it off because I love the peace and quite.  At night going...

    Today I relished a (rare) quiet,

    still day. Tomorrow, like clockwork, my worries will resume.

    always been known amongst the friends I ever made in life as the quiet one of the group. I was never any good at petty talk, and partaking in chit chat or participating with the guys in what I define as quasi scientific analysis of football matches. All of that just never did...

    Most Of The Time

    I do enjoy quiet time most of the time. It allows me to think and be in the moment, to be one with what I'm doing or with the person I'm with. Going anywhere where there are people means noise these days. I often feel it like an onslaught, my mind being bombarded against my...

    Not Quiet...exactly

    To me, "Quiet" time is anytime where I am completely, blissfully, ALONE!! And when that happens, the first thing I do is blast my music. Music helps me think and clear my head so I crank it up. Yee haw! So, as you can see, my quiet time is usually never "Quiet...

    I Even Hide to Get It.

    I really enjoy quiet time. I have always thought  it was because i am an only child so I grew up spending time alone. When I went to college I lived in a dorm room with 3 other girls. A room smaller than I had at home by myself. When I came home from college for the weekend...

    Sound of Silence

    I have a hearing problem which makes that I cannot filter background noises and so it is very tiring to be in a loud and noisy place for me. Sometimes I enjoy being in a relatively quiet place, be it at the beach, in a park, or somewhere else. Living near a busy road makes it...

    I Enjoy Quiet Time

    I enjoy quiet time. It is a time to reflect on my day. I think about people that I helped, and list out the reasons behind it. I keep a journal with every quiet time. I ponder about the situation, and write down a lot of stuff.

    Sitting On the Window Ledge

    I like to sit on the window ledge in my room and think about something or nothing at all. It's become a sort of ritual that I have to do every day or else I won't feel right. I don't know if this is healthy, but sometimes I sit doing nothing (or sometimes reading) for hours and...

    The quiet is lovely.  I didn't think so as a young adult.  Fortunately, I've found otherwise since. There are always going to be quiet times in life, quiet times in the day and night, in relationships, etc.  It's during those times I cease the opportunity to...

    Enjoying It More and More

    I value my quiet time, but I just don't take enough opportunities to have good quiet time.  There's so many times I could just flip off the tv and get in a lot more quiet time and enjoy a book or other quiet activity.  I almost always have the tv or radio going in the...

    I Like Be Alone

    When I finish work I like to come home to an empty house, with the exception of my five cats. I like not having to talk to people when I don't feel like it. In work I'm forced to talk with people and be polite when I just want to left alone. Sometimes it's nice to have a chat...
