silence

a spiritual discipline

try it

get into a place of solitude and say nothing

try 2 minutes at first

no phone

no screens

no conversations

set an alarm if you need to

Say to God “help me to have 2 minutes of silence”

breathe deeply, slowly

try to think of nothing

If you stray, try praying the Jesus Prayer silently “Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, Savior, have mercy on me.”

Try it daily for a week.

if you can do two minutes without too much distracting in-your-head-noise, try three minutes, four…

“Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, Savior, have mercy on me.”
