Do you *really* need to be contactable every minute of every day?
7. Turn off your computer
Today, we receive as much information in a single day as a person did in an entire year in early 1900 's. A large portion of that wave of information comes from our daily contact with computer... so turn it off. Check your email tomorrow. Give your mind a rest.
8. Get away from kids, pets, etc.
Ask a friend or family member to babysit/petsit for you for a day or two. (Then help them get some quiet time and return favor.)
9. Take a nap
We are much more sensitive to stress noise creates when we are lacking sleep. So take a nap and recharge your batteries.
10. Take a hike!
Literally. If you're going to surround yourself with noise, then surround yourself with noise of nature. Reconnect with yourself and with natural world around you, stroll around your favorite park or recreation area.
