"Time Out is Essential: Give yourself time, space and silence." – Thich Nhat Hanh
Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hahn advises people to think of it this way: for optimum spiritual and emotional health—and in order to be effective in the world—time out for rest, relaxation, contemplation, meditation (or just sitting quietly, disengaged from all potential distractions), should comprise some weeks in ever year, some days in every month, and some number of minutes (at least 15) in each day.
Time out is the essential first step for creating the simplicity we crave.
