Reasons to Practice Silence in Life:

Sound of the TV, the screeching sound of the automobile horns or your inner voice talking to you louder than anyone else.
Noise, and especially noise over 30 decibels, is associated with high blood pressure, anxiety, and stress. Lots of people get out of bed, take a shower, have coffee and put on the news to start the cycle of stress for the day. Are you one among them?
