Lull: a temporary interval of quiet or lack of activity.
How do you respond when a lull shows up? Do you get uncomfortable with the lack of activity, embrace it, use it productively or enjoy it?
How many lulls have you experienced recently? In our sped-up world they are rare. A lull may show up because of a deadline pushed forward, an easing in the flow of work or in a transition that hasn’t completed yet.
When a lull shows up, you have options on how to use it. Here are a few ideas:
• rebalance your life and work
• use the open space to rekindle your creativity
• catch up on things that were not getting done before
• observe your reaction to the quiet and what it says about your pace before the lull
• enjoy it
Lulls are precious- use them to your advantage.

What are you doing today? Working? Relaxing? On a holiday? Staying busy? Whatever it is, could you stop now and find some quiet if you wanted to? Silence is essential to balance and calm. Each day, make sure you know where and how you can find some quiet and re-center when you want to.
Quiet keeps you whole.

Quiet days are rare. When one does come along, you can treasure it. Quiet days are essential to a healthy rhythm in your life. They give you a chance to regroup and slow down – what a luxury!
The slower pace of a quiet day puts you in touch with yourself in a way that a faster pace does not. A quiet day is nurturing and restoring.
What do you do with a quiet day?
