One thing I have learned to do since being a parent is to long for silence.
The only way I could enjoy that is late at night when the kids are in bed or in the pre-dawn hours.
Staying still has allowed me to get centered. I find myself in deep contemplation. I may meditate, say prayers, or even let my mind go blank to keep calm.
I can release all the stress building up inside. There are no distractions.
My goal is to make it a consistent practice to be still in silence, meditation and prayer. I want to be in tune with my mind, body, and spirit.
Putting this into practice allows for my body to recharge. Which gets those creative juices flowing.
Renew your spirit.
